TRY not to panic. Don’t do any­thing rash and wait un­til the next day be­fore tak­ing any ac­tion. Get some per­spec­tive on what hap­pened and an ob­jec­tive view from oth­ers who were there. Seek ad­vice from your man­ager or HR about ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion. Many em­bar­rass­ing in­ci­dents at end-of-year func­tions are put down to the spirit of the event and the less said the bet­ter. You may need to pre­pare for a lit­tle friendly rib­bing from oth­ers. If your ac­tions were more se­ri­ous, con­sider an apol­ogy to af­fected par­ties. A lit­tle hu­mil­ity and re­morse can go a long way to re­pair your rep­u­ta­tion.
