The Advent Panda

16th Dec 2015: Office Party ‘Panda-monium’.

Tis the season to be jolly, but not too jolly eh?

Love it or hate it, it’s time for the minefield that is the company christmas party. Some Do’s and Don’ts to consider….

-Turn up. Be part of the team, even if only for a short time.
-Enjoy yourself at the company’s expense (if possible) – you deserve it!
-Take the opportunity to tell your colleagues and those who work for you that you appreciate them.
-Talk to one or more people that you would not normally work with. It’s amazing what you find out!

-Take the opportunity after some alcoholic courage to tell your boss everything that is wrong with the company.
-Embarrass yourself. Stories involving vomit, losing clothes or physical altercations will amuse your colleagues for years, but may result in your career circling the toilet bowl.
-Snog the person at work that you’ve adored from afar all year, without thinking carefully about what will happen when you see them at work tomorrow.

Ignore my words at your peril.
