Holiday Parties: Protecting your Organization
Planning for Safe Social Events
Holiday parties usually occur without incident, however, planning ahead will help you make sure your employees have a good time while behaving appropriately and remaining safe.
Here are a few tips:
Create and communicate guidelines for work social activities well in advance. Identify expectations for behavior, including the drinking of alcoholic beverages, if they will be provided or allowed.
Never permit minors to drink alcoholic beverages at any work-related activity.
If alcoholic beverages will be served or permitted, also serve food and non-alcoholic drinks. Create a mechanism for limiting the consumption of alcoholic drinks and provide a ride home if someone over-indulges.
Thinking about these issues in advance will help both you and your employees enjoy the holiday season.
