Office Party Do’s.
Do Turn up!
You should show up at all of them if you are invited to one office party or ten of them. You might just get to hang out with your future supervisor, so attend and dress to wow!
Do Have a nibble just before you leave!
You are heading there with the purpose of blowing away the mind of peers with your corporate and business personality. Eat ahead of time so you will not need to imbibe on an unfilled stomach and in the event that the meal is postponed or just bad, you won’t pass away of starvation.
Do Enjoy, that’s mandatory !
Don’t be a corner hugger or just speak with your co-workers from the next office space. Go for it and mingle. If getting wasted is your concept of pleasure, then go for it, but bear in mind that these same folks will be your supervisors and associates the next morning and they will practically never let you fail to remember!
Office Party Don’ts.
People are going to show off their festive selves more often than not. It is a workplace party, and the party will end, but you will have to see each other at the workplace everyday afterwards.
