Blog: Olly WehringThe morning after the night before

Olly Wehring | 18 December 2006

With Christmas a week away, the papers are full of hints and tips about how to avoid embarrassing yourself at this year’s office party (we had our event last Friday, and you’ll be relieved to hear that I was the perfect guest – what happened at that party stays at that party, alright?).

Anyway, the latest office party-related story came through today (18 December) and looked at how workers have managed to get through the morning after, when they’re back in the office and still feel a tad the worse for wear.

So, after a night on the sauce, have you ever:

a) fallen asleep at your computer screen (like 42% of UK workers)?
b) slipped to the loo for a quick kip (25%)?
c) Crept to your car for 40 winks (10%), or
d) Made for the stationary cupboard for some zeds (3%)?

Around 44% of us haven’t even made it in to work the following morning, the hangover was so bad.

The survey revealed that two hours of a working day is wasted when an employee comes in hungover and productivity is halved.

My solution to this is perfectly straightforward. You know how France closes completely in August for its summer holidays? Well, why can’t we in the UK do the same thing every December?

Problem solved.
