    SYDNEYS Holiday parties are back. It’s yet another way many companies show their appreciation for — and retain — their employees. A good holiday party, from an employees’ perspective, does one thing: it makes them feel appreciated. Quite often, there is a perception that personnel at the higher levels in an organization get perks that others might not, which make them stick with and feel appreciated by the company. But other employees, who are working more behind the scenes, also want to feel appreciated by their employer. The annual holiday party is one way to show that appreciation and build loyalty toward your company. In the end, a great company holiday party is not about the party itself, it’s a representation of what the employees mean to the organization. Just like we all wanted to hear praise and encouragement as a child, it’s a way to say thank you to the people who make your business a success. It’s no surprise that companies that put thoughtful events together such as a wellplanned holiday party also retain more employees; a little effort can go a long way. At Sydney's our business is making your business a success. We look forward to working with you this holiday season. www.Sydneysattheforks.com 204-942-6075

    PRE-GAME PLAY IT SMART WITH spirited parties Parties catering to adults are often enhanced with a variety of food and beverage options, and alcoholic drinks are a common component of such gatherings. Party hosts and hostesses who will be offering the spirits to their guests should keep safety in the back of their minds. Many party hosts are unaware that they may be held liable should a person become intoxicated at their event and then go on to injure another person while under the influence. This is why bartenders will stop serving customers who are visibly drunk. Although laws vary from place to place, party hosts should still keep tabs on their guests’ alcohol consumption, cutting off guests who might have had enough to drink. In addition to monitoring alcohol consumption, party hosts can employ these additional practices to keep everyone safe. • Collect keys upon entry to the party. Ask guests who plan to drink alcohol to surrender their car keys to you when they arrive at the party. Guests may be offended at having to relinquish control of their cars, but it is a wise move to remove any temptation to drive away. • Remain sober. A s t he party host, you will have a number of responsibilities, including ensuring your guests’ comfort and safety. Having your wits about you will enable you to make better decisions for you and your guests. 10 | MIXOLOGY MAGAZINE FALL 2016
