Holiday Party Pitfalls
Brandy Cody was featured in Oregon Business as a guest blogger.
She offered tips for companies throwing holiday parties.
Brandy suggests making the event a family affair. When employees are able to bring their partners or children, they tend to exhibit better behavior and judgment. It also adds another resource to ensure people get home safely.
Remind all employees that, while you want them to enjoy themselves at the party, they are still obligated to adhere to the company’s code of conduct standards and otherwise comply with the policies against harassment, retaliation and other workplace rules regarding behavior.
