Company party etiquette 101
Rosanne Thomas, founder and president of Protocol Advisors, joins us with the best way to politely navigate these parties and avoid getting a bad reputation.
Thomas says it's important for people to respond to party invitations regardless of whether you can attend.
Attire is important at a work party. If you are unsure of what the attire is, Thomas suggests checking with the person who sent the invitation.
Once at the party, it's a good idea to circulate as much as possible, spending 3 to 4 minutes with each person. Thomas says to remember a company party is a business event - don't complain or gossip.
