At business social functions, shyness may be misunderstood by management as being socially unskilled.  Try to exhibit friendly bravery by introducing yourself to as many people as possible.  Even if you really don’t want to be there, stay at least 1/2 hour and makes the rounds before leaving.  This can keep you in the winner’s circle by exhibiting a team player attitude and be good for your working relationships.
