Are you hungover at your desk?

7th May 2008

A recent study claims one in three employees admit to having a hangover and more than one in 10 has been drunk at their desk.

One thousand people were interviewed about their drinking habits, of which 85% confirmed that having a hangover affected their performance or mood.

More than a third of the staff surveyed said they found it hard to concentrate, 35% said they were less productive, 42% felt tired to the point of being sleepy and 25% did minimum work and went home early.

Don Shenker, of Alcohol Concern, said that with so many people drinking at harmful levels, it was not surprising that it was having an effect on the workplace.
