What NOT to do at your Christmas Party
Christmas parties are notoriously sordid affairs with some people taking the opportunity from some time off work a little too far. Here’s some advice on how to make sure what happens at your Christmas party stays at the party – and doesn’t come back to bite you in the New Year! If you’re looking to celebrate at one of our Christmas Party Nights, Surrey is the place to be…
Don’t get TOO drunk…
Everyone loves a drink at Christmas and rightly so, tis the season to be jolly after all. However, if you have too much “festive cheer” and get a little too merry, you might accidentally do something embarrassing – like throwing up or flirting/fighting with the wrong colleague. It’s a party so everyone expects you to have a few drinks, just don’t make a scene and you can avoid any negative repercussions – remember you’re still technically at work!
Talk about work
You work hard all year so come Christmas you’ve earned a bit of TLC and a chance to let your hair down. Conversations about yearly projections, targets and upcoming meetings should all be off-limits; you’re there to forget about work for the evening so relax and chat about literally anything else.
Overload on the buffet
It can be incredibly tempting to stack your plate to the ceiling with free grub, but bear in mind that food is for everyone and has to last all night. So as good as Christmas nibbles and cold turkey can be, think before excitedly piling up your fifth plate.
Ask for a pay rise
There’s certainly a time and a place for negotiating your next step up the corporate ladder but the work Christmas party is not it. A change in your contract is a delicate procedure, and drunkenly slurring your proposal to your manager is probably not the best look.
