When it comes to your coworkers, celebrating birthdays in the workplace can be fun for everyone. However, respecting the overall work environment and other co-workers is key to having success. Obtain permission from your employer if you want to plan a celebration and be sure that others do not become jealous if they do not participate or receive their own celebration when the time comes. Be sure not to be to prying on their age as to decrease any potential conflicts or competition among younger employees.
