Holiday Parties are Back along with Hiring!
Another good sign companies are feeling confident about the economy – holiday parties are back! One of Chicago’s largest restaurant groups (Lettuce Entertain You) reports reservations are up 5 to 15% this year. And many of the larger venues – Shedd Aquarium – are almost fully booked.
Of course along with the parties come the reminder of appropriate behavior – in spite of the wine/liquor and free-spirited and celebratory environment, it is still business. Don’t corner your boss after a few drinks and let him/her know how much you dislike the company, your job and co-workers! This isn’t the time or place to let your guard down – it is a party but one for work.
