Workers dread the office Christmas party

New British research shows that almost a third of office workers actively hate the annual office Christmas party.

In a story from Reuters, Jo Hemmings, a behavioural psychologist said that office parties create an unnatural situation that obliges workers to socialize, and, even worse, dance, with people they would prefer to see only in a professional context.

The poll, carried out by the British Greyhound Racing Board, showed that workers feel pressure to be witty, entertaining and glamorous at their Christmas parties, and that the biggest office party embarrassment among workers was terrible drunken dancing.
