By serving food in conjunction with alcohol, employers can help diminish the effects of alcohol and prevent employees from becoming intoxicated at the holiday party. Here are some steps employers can take:
*Have food available at all times so that employees do not drink on empty stomachs.
*Serve finger food that is easier to eat.
*Avoid serving salty food that encourages people to drink more.
*Serve dessert and coffee after you stop serving alcohol and encourage people to stay for dessert. This would also be a good time to schedule any speeches.
