The holidays can be a festive and celebratory time of year, but be mindful that alcohol consumption can send mixed messages or create confusion about drinking. So be prepared to set a positive example.
Having a bartender allowed the host to mingle with neighbors and not leave guests asking "where's the ice?" His bar was also stocked with every type of top-shelf liquor, which is the way to go, even if it costs you a few extra bucks.
The holidays are here and, along with them, the opportunity for employees to goof off and collectively test the limits of managers and Human Resources professionals everywhere. Don't let these headaches disrupt your office.
