Did someone mention the C-word? Oops that was us! Everyone has a tale to tell about a Christmas party and an embarrassing antic a “friend” got up to. It can feel like a minefield for an employer who needs to decide how to celebrate Christmas with their team. Our blogs guides you through the minefield.

There seems to be an unlimited number of options on how to celebrate Christmas – a meal, an entertainer, a themed party, shared party, Go-Karting, fancy dress, or drinks in the office after work.

Before you decide how you are going to celebrate think about the following factors: Alcohol, Dietary Needs, Timing, Accessibility, Work Needs and Interests. We want to help you get it right, visit our website to read the full version of our blog >> The Christmas Party How to Keep it Professional
