Partygoers are prone to overindulging in alcohol during the holiday season, leading to impaired judgment and preventable harm. Bars and restaurants are responsible for not overserving their patrons. But companies and individuals hosting holiday parties also need to take precautions when serving alcohol to guests or employees.
You don’t have to squash the fun – consider offering to cover taxi bills for guests or employees. Or arrange for a designated driver in advance and reward them with a gift certificate or a special perk.
With some thoughtful advance conversations and planning, the party doesn’t have to end on a bad note.
