HOUSTON -- Who's ready for a good old-fashioned office holiday party?
You know, with one too many drinks, a copy machine stuck in “rear-end” mode and that one “not so appropriate” manager.
Only problem is, thanks to the Harvey Weinstein effect, companies are actually scaling down holiday celebrations.
A recent survey by Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc. says the number of employers throwing festivities is down nearly 4% from last year. With more than 15% of those budgeting less money for the event and 11% less will not serve alcohol as party favors.
We got the do's and the dont's.
- Don't over drink.
- Do arrive early.
- Don't talk business.
- And do work the room.
It's easy, if you plan on going at all, make it an HR department's dream and behave yourself.
