Finance work is demanding, but does the nature of the job lead to — or even demand — more drinking than other industries?
According to a recent poll by YouGov, an international Internet-based market research firm, finance staffers are no strangers to the bottle.
In fact, finance staffers were among the heaviest-drinking group of professionals in poll — surpassed only by workers in media, IT and the service-sector industries.
The survey also found that 25% of finance employees said they “sometimes felt pressured to drink by their colleagues.”
Stress often plays a pivotal role when workers start to drink more heavily. One way to gauge employees’ stress levels is to send out frequent personal engagement surveys to get a feel for their work/life balance.
