Are Work Reunions Really a Thing Now?
You've heard of family reunions, high school and college reunions, but what about work reunions? Apparently, that's what some people are starting to do, and it might be catching on.
Earlier, a friend of mine told me she was going to a work reunion later in the week. I had to step back for a second and think - 'a work reunion?' That was the first time I ever heard someone mention a work reunion. So I took to Facebook and the phone lines to see how many other people knew about work reunions.
After talking to a handful of people it seemed that most people have heard of places having work reunions, although most people had not participated in them (who could blame them... would you really want to go to reunion at a job you left, or got fired from?!)
The biggest reason for a work reunion? Well, most people took it as an excuse to party, and catch up with old co-workers. Other than that... there really wasn't any reason at all.
I guess when it comes down to it, a work reunion is fine to have or be a part of - as long as you left on good terms, and you actually still like the people and the place you once worked for. That's the only way I can see a work reunion being an okay thing - without causing issues or drama. If you head to work reunion, or know of someone going to one - I want to know! Leave me a comment below. I think I need more insight on these 'work reunion' deals.
