Office parties bring out the pout in UK workforce

The
New Year could see embarrassed silences and red faces at offices around the
country after research revealed that nearly half of the UK’s workers manage to
steal a kiss from colleagues at the Christmas party.

The
poll, by recruitment website Monster, shows that 45 per cent of British staff
admitted kissing co-workers at the office party – the second highest number in
Europe.

Only
the Irish were more amorous when it comes to taking advantage of festive
opportunities under the metaphorical mistletoe at the traditional office bash.

A
further 20 per cent of Brits said they would try and kiss someone from work if
they thought they could get away with it.

Surprisingly,
the rest of Europe was less affectionate than the UK, with 39 per cent managing
to have snogged a colleague.
