To help them prepare for the event, we've created an interactive game at , in which they control Nick, an employee whose good taste and sense of tact are put to the test. The goal of the game is to help Nick avoid getting too fired-up... and fired.

Designed to be humorous and entertaining, this interactive game is also an effective way to inform employees about the risks associated with certain conduct and behaviour at annual office parties. This game is just one of the ways in which Jobboom, a leading online recruiting service in Canada, is fulfilling its mission to help people find and keep jobs.

Happy Holidays and most of all, here's to hoping your annual office party will be a great success!
