BOOZY work lunches are in danger of becoming a thing of the past, as seven in ten working Brits would no longer DREAM of drinking at lunchtime.
New research has revealed the good old days of wine soaked business lunches on expenses could soon be consigned to the history books, as modern business deals are now more likely to be clinched over a sparkling water and a salad.
In fact according to the data, seven in ten British business people would NEVER drink alcohol at a business lunch, with 23 percent saying their boss simply wouldn’t stand for it.
However, a more health conscious half of those polled (46 percent) claimed they prefer to stick to water, as drinking alcohol is just too unhealthy in this day and age.
But the nationwide study of 2,000 business people by Deliveroo for Business also revealed that over half complain they go out for “far fewer” work lunches than they did ten years ago.
In fact, modern Brits have an average of three working “lunches” every six months, whereas ten years ago, we would enjoy as many as five according to the report, with 44 percent saying back in the day they regularly got “tipsy” on a business lunch.
