How to Protect Your Business for the Holiday Party

How to Protect Your Business for the Holiday Party

How to Protect Your Business for the Holiday PartyHoliday parties may be fun, but that doesn’t mean they’re entirely safe–especially in the presence of alcohol.

As the holidays roll around, your company email thread may be blowing up with holiday party ideas. Where will it be? Who is going to bring what? And what are we going to drink? It may be something your employees are looking forward to, but parties and alcohol usually don’t create the safest of environments. And when it’s your company that’s hosting the party, it’s going to be your business that faces the lawsuits and charges if there is an accident. Here are ways that you can protect your business from safety issues at the company holiday party.

How to Protect Your Business

  1. Hold the Party Offsite

If any issues arise, it’s better that the problem occurs away from the business premises. And, depending on the state, the liability may be on the offsite establishment rather than the company.

  1. Do Not Provide Alcohol

If guests are forced to bring their own alcohol, they will consume less. Also, never serve alcohol to adults or children under 21.

  1. Offer Non-Alcoholic Beverages and Always Serve Free Food

It has been proven that food can counter some of the effects of alcohol by absorbing it. That’s why it’s important that your employees have a good meal before attending the party, so they don’t become too sloppy too soon.

  1. Arrange Alternative Transcription

Plan on people getting drunk. Arrange alternative methods of transportation for these individuals in advance of the party. Encourage guests to call for alternative transportation if they are inebriated.
