Nights out lead to good work relations

Nearly
three-quarters of office workers say socialising with colleagues is the key to
building positive relationships at work.

A
survey of 1,000 office employees by recruitment consultant Office Angels found
those who socialise with colleagues are likely to be happier at work, have
stronger team-working skills and stay in their jobs for longer.

Respondents
said having a few quiet drinks with workmates allowed them to discuss
work-related issues and increased their sense of team and company loyalty.

More
than half of those surveyed socialised with colleagues at least once a week and
a third socialised once a month.

Almost
all men (98 per cent) said beer was their preferred tipple on an office night
out. Fifty-three cent of women said they like to drink cocktails, while 41 per
cent prefer wine.
