Inviting Business Friends to Your BBQ Hero Label

Inviting Business Friends to Your BBQ

Just don’t diss the uninvited. When inviting a select few co-workers, do it discreetly and away from the office (try calling them in the evening) to make it clear this a "non-office" event. The next day, be careful not to rave in front of the uninvited about what a great time you all had. Finally, try varying your routine: Socializing with pals is fine, but consider holding get-togethers where everyone in the office is invited, too.
