Holiday Party Etiquette


The weather has finally settled to chilling 50- and 60-degree temperatures, which in Arizona means one thing: the holidays are upon us. With the post-Thanksgiving food coma comes a promise of holiday sales, crowds and—don’t forget—the office holiday party. As your Tempe office space plunges headfirst into the holiday season, the office party should be the least of your concerns. To avoid awkward mistakes and common pitfalls, we’ve compiled a list of holiday party etiquette rules to live by when throwing and attending a holiday party.

Consider Your Employees.

Chances are the employees at your office space in AZ come from many different backgrounds and have different preferences. Be mindful of religious differences, dietary or lifestyle restrictions, allergies, and familial obligations when planning for the theme, food, and venue of your party. If an employee is deathly allergic to shellfish, it might be a good idea to skip the seafood platter and go with a charcuterie board instead. If the majority of your staff have families with young children, consider having your party during work hours or hosting it at a family-friendly venue and inviting the kids.

Show Up.

We get it. The holidays are stressful and busy, and it always seems as if there’s not enough time to get everything done. In spite of all this, you still need to show up to your holiday party. It’s a chance to let loose and have some fun while showing your support and appreciation for the people that dedicate themselves to making the business run throughout the year. If you have other obligations, show up (on time), make an effort to chat with everyone and thank them for coming, then leave after a reasonable period of time.

Dress Appropriately.

Although your party setting may be away from the office, you should keep in mind that you’ll be around coworkers you see on a daily basis. If the party requires a certain dress code, be sure to specify it to your employees ahead of time. Depending on your usual office space in AZ garb, you don’t want to dress in a way that is too casual. If your usual attire is a suit and tie, don’t show up in flip flops, a Tommy Bahama Shirt and Santa hat.

Be Social.

Whether you’re a social butterfly or more of a wallflower, it’s still important to try to interact with those around you. Don’t look bored or like it’s a chore to be there. Make conversation with everyone, especially those you don’t know or aren’t as familiar with. This is a time when the usual office walls are down, and you can get to know your staff on a deeper level.

Thank the Party Planner.

Planning and organizing company get-togethers can be an enormous task that’s stressful and time-consuming. Make it a point to thank the person(s) who were involved in making your holiday party come to life.
