Do Take a Break from Your Phone

If you are glued to your phone all night, you will miss out on key face to face interactions with your colleagues. The snap chats and texts will be there when you are done. Also keep in mind that social media can capture everything. Be aware of this when ordering another drink and possibly hitting the dance floor.

From office-wide happy hours to office parties and corporate retreats, work events are often characterized by a more relaxed but professional environment, casual chats with colleagues, and the inclusion of alcoholic beverages. Though these events are often a wonderful way to connect with coworkers and interact with the power-players, they can also be monumentally disastrous without modern manners.

Sharon Schweitzer, an international etiquette expert and founder and CEO of Protocol & Etiquette Worldwide, offers the dos and don’ts of work event etiquette to help you enjoy the night and find the balance between personal and professional behavior.
