A Guide to Holiday Work Parties

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The weeks surrounding the holiday season can bring a variety of emotions: joy, laughter, anxiety, and stress. Gathering with your coworkers and bosses at your annual holiday work party can bring all of these things to life.

Luckily, Lily Winston is here to help!

The most important thing to keep in mind at a holiday work party is to be mindful of how you act. Just because you aren’t on the clock doesn’t mean you aren’t presenting yourself! With an open bar and unspoken thoughts about your job or the people you work with, it is easy to say something you may regret.

Another idea is to have a statement prepared about what you do for when meeting new people in the company. A positive attribute to your job will keep you sounding respectful and grateful; you never know what networks and opportunities a new connection could introduce you to!

Finally, consider what to wear. This is an aspect of presenting oneself that makes all the difference when giving off an impression. The number one rule is: If you have to ask if it’s too revealing, too casual, or anything along those lines, don’t wear it! You should feel confident and prepared in your outfit to give off the best presentation to the company, and your coworkers. If you need assistance in presenting yourself, give Lily Winston a call and we'll put our brand image expertise to work!

The holiday work party should be a fun event to celebrate a positive work environment. Have fun, and use it as an opportunity to represent yourself in the best possible light!
