10 Holiday Party Tips - A CEDR HR Infographic

For easy reference, are the 10 tips depicted above.

  1. Hold your holiday party off premises—there’s less liability.
  2. Schedule it for a weeknight—people tend to party less.
  3. Make it clear that attendance at this event is optional.
  4. Hire holiday staff—bartenders can limit alcohol consumption.
  5. Limit your alcohol to beer & wine. Be sure to have non-alcoholic options available.
  6. Provide lots of food—it will distract from drinking.
  7. Keep invitations, décor & activities religion neutral.
  8. Limit the length of the party and choose a cut-off time for alcohol.
  9. Workplace rules apply. Don’t tempt employees by having mistletoe.
  10. Utilize apps such as Uber & Lyft to make transportation accessible for employees.
