CNN thinks you should skip your office holiday party. Do you attend yours?
In the time of #TimesUp, there’s never been a brighter light shone on workplace shenanigans. With that in mind, would you be better off skipping your office holiday party? Not a chance, reports CNN, which thinks such soirees are an ideal opportunity to schmooze with colleagues–including your boss. That being said, networking expert Gayle Hallgren-Rezac warns people, “Don’t always talk shop. You don’t want to come across as a ladder climber.” She also recommends that you “put your phone away” in order to genuinely connect with your fellow revelers.
