Don't Loosen Up too Much

Although being comfortable at these events is key, don’t allow yourself to be overly comfortable. These events are an ideal avenue for colleagues to get to know more than the work-oriented facet of you. However, keep in mind that there is a thin line between sharing happy stories about your personal life and divulging inappropriate information. Remember, your superiors may be around you.

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.
