It’s that time of year again – the DJ’s playing Shakin’ Stevens, the dance floor is crowded and the beer is flowing. The festive season is generally a time of celebration, but brings its own set of challenges for you as an employer. The all too familiar scenes of too much alcohol combined with misunderstandings can lead to considerable business disruption long after the night of your Christmas party.
Social events, such as the annual bash are considered to be an extension of the working environment and it’s important that as an employer you take reasonable steps to prevent discrimination, harassment or victimisation.
Here are our tips on how to prepare yourself for the season and minimise the risks to your business:
The Christmas party is a great opportunity to show your employees that they’re important to your business and to thank them for their hard work. Proper planning will ensure that workplace issues are kept to a minimum and everyone has a very enjoyable time.
Have a lovely festive season from the Citation team.
