"Making Merry," Atlanta Business Chronicle

Berman says the most important advice she gives to clients is to tell employees what the expectations are before the party, particularly that office policies relating to harassment and appropriate dress apply to the event. While this is a very festive time and the rules can be relaxed, there needs to be guidelines. Atlanta Business Chronicle subscribers can view the full article here.
