Today‘s survey into alcohol and drugs in the workplace caused a media stir
interest was fuelled by the finding that 74 per cent of HR people believe
lunchtime drinking should be banned, and that almost one-third of employers are
considering introducing testing for drugs and alcohol in the next 12 months.
editor Mike Broad and deputy news editor Ben Willmott fielded the many requests
for interviews from local radio stations such as Radio Devon, Wiltshire Sound,
Radio Swindon and Manx Radio.
news programmes on both ITV and Channel 5 carried the story and the issue was
also discussed on Radio 4’s Today programme. The Daily Telegraph also
ran a story.
