A London-based boutique corporate events company has revealed research it has conducted over the last few years on work Christmas party behaviour and created a quiz for the public to take to see what type of office Christmas party person they are. The results reveal that on average almost a fifth of employees have had a severe warning due to their Christmas party behaviour and a tenth have been sacked.

As businesses around the UK begin organising the office Christmas party, a boutique corporate events company has released a ‘what office Christmas party person are you’ quiz for members of the public to take ahead of the festivities.

Team Tactics has created the multiple-choice quiz based on personality and lifestyle questions that have been created in line with research it has collected from its customer database, post-Christmas party over the last 2 years.

The anonymous research Team Tactics conducted investigated what each respondent did at their office Christmas party, including whether they got drunk, didn’t drink at all, made out with a colleague, told their boss they hated their job or fell asleep for example.

The research also revealed that on average almost a fifth (19%) of employees have had a severe warning due to their Christmas party behaviour and a tenth (8%) have been sacked. Just less than a third (27%) said they avoided getting drunk at their office Christmas party in case they embarrassed themselves in front of their boss and co-workers.

Team Tactics profiled respondents based on a series of personality and lifestyle questions, their likes and dislikes and hobbies and discovered correlations between the answers and their office Christmas party behaviour.

Outcomes of the quiz can be: mistletoe lurker, drunken shame, backdoor shuffler and co-worker kiss chase.

Tina Benson, managing director at Team Tactics said,

“Office Christmas parties are always an interesting time of the year, it seems that employees are either really excited or get nervous about attending! I think the way you feel about office work parties is highly personal, so we decided to do a little digging and see if there are ‘types’ of Christmas work party people, and our research indicates there definitely is!

“If people want to steer away from the generic office Christmas parties, there are other options available, which is what we cater for. Bonding with your co-workers is important, you probably see these people five days a week and establishing a good relationship is crucial for a productive workplace.”
