Tips For A Happy, HR-Appropriate Office Holiday Party
To help keep your festivity on the safe side of the work-appropriate fence—you know, that’s the side without all the sexual harassment lawsuits, DUIs, or worker’s comp claims on it—we invite you to listen to our Holiday Parties podcast, hosted by our CEO, Paul Edwards and our Human Resources Director, Michele Oliver:
If throwing your team a holiday bash hasn’t yet caused you HR nightmares, good for you! But over the years, you’ve probably heard from a friend or colleague who’s witnessed a little madness under the mistletoe. There are just so many ways to go wrong. From location and timing, to drinks and their aftereffects, to accidental religious overtones, planning a fun but incident-free seasonal celebration takes all of your abilities as a manager.
In addition to the podcast, check out our Office Holiday Party Do’s and Don’ts. If you have more questions about planning your office party, contact our CEDR Solution Center for help. Otherwise, plan carefully (and avoid mistletoe like the plague). CEDR wishes you and your team a safe and happy holiday season.
