The Dos and Don't of the Corporate Party

It’s that time of year yet again, the corporate party. Whether it’s to celebrate the holidays or for no other reason than that you all deserve it, navigating a party where your bosses are all present isn’t always easy. While most of it should be common sense (best not to show off your break-dancing skills), there are probably a few dos and don’ts that you haven’t thought of before.

 

Do Dress Professionally


While a corporate party is a great chance to have a laugh with your colleagues and let off some steam, it’s still corporate. While you don’t need to look like you came straight from the office, the dress code is still generally business casual. This means no neon, body glitter, or glow sticks. I know, it’s unfair right? Best keep it for the work nights out that your boss doesn’t know about…

 

Don’t Be a No-Show


If you’ve said you’re going to be there, and RSVP’d, then you need to turn up unless you have a really good excuse. The thought of a corporate party isn’t for everyone, but they are never as bad as your brain makes them out to be, and you’re bound to have a good time with the rest of your colleagues. Even if you’re not really feeling it, it’s important that you are seen to go to these events.

 

Do Keep an Eye on What You Drink


When the boss is getting the rounds in, it can be easy to over indulge. No one wants to be the drunk person at the work party however, no matter how close you all are. Keep to within your limits, even if it does mean you’re the only one not doing shots. You will thank yourself for it the next day, especially when the videos of the dance floor are revealed.

 

Don’t Talk about Work


While it’s a corporate party, no one there actually wants to talk about anything to do with work. Take this chance to get to know some of your colleagues that you don’t work closely with and ask them about their lives. Everyone is there to try and let off a little steam and network with the rest of the company, so keep the work chat to a minimum unless you’re asked a question.

 

Do Enjoy Yourself


Don’t just sit in a corner all night, enjoy yourself. It is a party after all, and everyone wants you to have a good time. Get on the dance floor and show off your moves, join in with karaoke and get chatting to as many people as possible, don’t just stick with the few people that you know. A corporate party is a place to let your hair down and forget about the stresses of work – everyone else is there for the exact same reason.

 

Don’t Gossip


While a party is the perfect place to catch up with colleagues, don’t engage in any gossip about co-workers. Not only is it definitely not the place, but it’s unprofessional. We all know that half of the rumours that circulate a company are only half true, and the rest are just outright false. A corporate party is not the time or the place to get caught spreading rumours by the wrong person, so the best thing to do is to not engage.

 

Do Know How You’re Getting Home


There are loads of corporate venues for hire in London, but getting home isn’t always easy. Make sure that you know in advance if your company is ordering taxis, or if you’re all to make your own way back. Do you have a colleague that lives nearby? If so, share a cab with them or find a designated driver. No one wants to be stuck outside at the end of the night.

 

Don’t Overstay Your Welcome


While there may be some who are up for partying until the sun comes up, it’s best if you’re not one of them. Leave at a sensible time when things seem to be winding down, and make sure that you say your goodbyes to everyone that matters. Don’t leave too early either unless you have a good reason to. If you do have to go, make sure you apologise and give an explanation.

 

Do Turn Up the Next Day


While you might not be fresh, if you haven’t over-indulged, you should still be fine for work the next day. It might have been a late night, calling in sick the morning after a corporate party is always a bad move, so get out of bed, head for the shower, and put on your best smile.

 

Don’t Forget to Thank the Organisers


It’s always best to do this the night of the party, but if you don’t get the chance, seek them out the next day. A lot of effort goes in to organising a corporate party, from hiring the venue to sending out the invites, and so a thank you will go a long way. Show the organisers that you appreciate them and let them know that they did a good job.


It’s time to dress up and head out to party. Keep it professional, have fun, don’t lose your head, and you’ll be fine. Even if the CEO does line up the tequilas, best not to join them unless you’re sure you know what you’re doing. Follow our list of Dos and Don’ts, and you’ll soon be known as the life and soul of the party, without ruining your corporate reputation in the process.
