We've all seen it: the trainwreck of a work event when you mix co-workers, booze, and an encouragement to "let your hair down." If you don't want to spend the holidays looking for a new job, nip these mistakes in the bud before that party gets started.
As we slide into December, we resign ourselves to seeing signs of Christmas when we're in the mall, at the car dealership, or even just trying to watch a little TV. But when you're at work, it's sometimes hard to deal with all the "stuff" that comes with Christmas when you don't celebrate it yourself. Office courtesy goes both ways, and it should be possible to have an inclusive environment where some co-workers celebrate winter holidays and those who don't are still respected.
