Social Events

Social events are a common occurrence in the modern workplace and they can be a great way to blow off steam and get to know the people you work with in a more informal setting. But they can also carry risks, as the loose, permissive nature of social events can bring out the person you swore you left behind in college.

Though a work-related gathering might feel more social than professional, it’s important to be on your best behavior, because what happens outside of work won’t stay outside of work for long. A good rule of thumb is if you wouldn’t do it at the workplace, then you shouldn’t do it at a social event, which probably rules out having a good time.
