10 Knigge tips for the successful company celebration: Please not too loose!

Some look forward to the company festivities, for others it is a chore. The atmosphere is mostly relaxed, but certain rules still apply. Those who master them can score points in their career.

1. Accept the invitation

Participation in a company celebration is not obligatory. Keep in mind, however, that a no-show gives the impression that you have no interest in becoming an outsider.

Because many Company such socializing is standard. Use the occasion as a career opportunity and make a confident appearance.

2. The dresscode

If a dress code is specified on the invitation, you must adhere to it. If nothing is specified, the place where the celebration takes place is decisive. Celebrate on the bowling alley, a dark suit doesn't make a difference Sense.

If, on the other hand, you are invited to a chic restaurant, the suit is very suitable. The following applies to women: it is better to leave daring outfits (deep neckline, too short skirt, high heels) in the closet for a private occasion. Basically, the same applies to a celebration as to everyday work: "More material means more authority."

3. Restraint in alcohol

"Children and drunks always tell the truth". You should be aware of this wisdom when drinking alcohol. If you look too deeply into the glass, you run the risk of saying sentences that you will feel sorry for, embarrassing or even damage your career the next day.

In addition, excessive alcohol consumption gives the impression that you are doing well at the expense of the company. So: prefer a glass less than one too much.

4. The food

There are two things to consider here: First, don't go to the buffet before your Manager it's free, and second, don't clutter your plate. A sense of proportion is required. Better to go several times and take smaller portions.

To each course you take a new plate. If the food is individually ordered, stay modest and order not only the most expensive and most unusual dishes on the menu.

5. Watching flirting

If you flirt too conspicuously with your colleague, you are always exposed to the eyes of others. That could become an issue in the company the next day. Those who feel pressured to flirt are best looking for support and involve a neutral third party in the conversation.

6. Be careful with the "you"

If the "you" is offered to you by your boss, you should take it. According to business etiquette, the following rule applies: The higher rank offers the lower rank the "you". Spontaneous "dozens of offers" from colleagues should be treated with care, as some of these offers are tacitly revised the next day.

Then leave this change of heart uncommented. The best thing to do is to wait and greet your colleagues with a "good morning".

7. Show good manners

Punctual appearance is self-evident. Do not leave the celebration much more than most other colleagues. If you want or need it, please explain to your host. A thank you for the successful feast at the farewell pleased every boss.

8. Small talk skillfully

To start a conversation are very good topics such as hobbies, holidays, city breaks or children. The corporate party is not the place for career talks, salary demands, colleagues' puzzles, or suggestions for improvement.

In principle, polarizing topics, which can quickly lead to differences of opinion or a bad mood, should be avoided. These include, for example Politics, Religion, sickness or death.

9. How the body speaks

Pay attention to the distance zone, especially at a later hour, ie the physical distance from the person you are speaking to should not be less than arm's length. In this way you can be sure that you are not “bothering” anyone.

In conversation, look at your opponent, do not cross your arms, or do not put your hands in the bag. This way you are expressing an appreciative attitude.

10. The day after

The next day everyone is back in his role. Who then feels that he is not behaved as he should, speaks best.

It is better to apologize and thus image harm to conversations of colleagues or supervisors.
