How to behave at a New Year's corporate event

December is the month of New Year's corporate events, which provides a great opportunity to socialize with colleagues, make useful contacts and just have fun. But during such celebrations, employees often forget about the basic rules of etiquette, which can lead to negative consequences.

OBOZ.UA has compiled a list of rules that will help create a good impression and a positive atmosphere at a corporate party. This is actually a good opportunity to establish working relationships in an informal setting.

Punctuality

It is better not to be late for a corporate event, even though it is a holiday. Usually, at the beginning of the evening, managers make congratulatory speeches, thank employees for their work, and summarize the results of the year. Therefore, your tardiness can ruin this moment.

You shouldn't leave the party earlier than the managers, but don't stay late either.

Dress code

The outfit should match the venue and theme of the party. For a corporate party in a restaurant, a modest evening dress is suitable, and men should choose pants and a shirt, as well as a tie (optional). Avoid bright patterns and revealing necklines.

Greetings

A corporate event is an informal meeting, so you can go beyond a handshake at such an event. If a person wants to hug you, you shouldn't push them away or avoid them. Adapt to the group of people you are spending time with.

Conversations

Don't be a passive listener at a party; it's the perfect opportunity to make interesting and useful contacts. Don't be afraid to approach your colleagues and be the first to start a conversation. The main thing is not to be intrusive or too talkative. Politeness, cute jokes, and a sincere smile will help make a good impression.

Alcohol

At a corporate event, you should be careful about drinking alcoholic beverages. Don't drink more than your normal limit, but it's also impolite to refuse alcohol altogether. If you don't drink alcohol, choose non-alcoholic cocktails. Do not drink stronger drinks than you are used to. This can lead to feeling unwell and losing control.

Food

Observe the measure and do not fill your plate with all the salads or snacks at once. Eat small portions and never take leftovers home with you.
