Christmas hangovers set to cost firms £888m

The nation's business are set to see a dip in productivity in the next few days as employees suffer from the effects of Christmas parties, with this festive hangover costing in the region of £888 million across the country.

Data published by Travelodge following a poll of 6,000 staff suggests that seven out of ten workers will have at least two parties over the next seven working days, with 70 per cent of these employees spending at least one working day nursing a hangover this festive season.

The average employer is set to lose a day of lost productivity due to their workforce spending at least three and half hours suffering from a hangover the morning after, according to the data.

However, the report also suggested that just 23 per cent of employers will be rewarding their workforce with a Christmas party, with 47 per cent of employees paying for the annual bash.

It comes after a survey by Monster found that a quarter of staff have done something mildly regrettable and been embarrassed for a few days and one in six have done something so severe it has damaged their reputation or even led to dismissal.
