LONDON: A new study has revealed that around 34% of Brits have sex with their colleagues after the Christmas party.
The study by married dating site IllicitEncounters.com also showed that over 60% had drunkenly kissed someone they work with, and nearly a quarter of people admitted to calling in sick the next day with a hangover, the Daily Star reported.
Possibly clouded by alcohol, around 18% made a poor career move and used the Christmas party as an opportunity to tell their boss exactly what they thought of them, while 25% had decided it would be an appropriate time to chat them up, perhaps trying to secure a pay rise or bonus.
In a recent survey of employers, over 80% admitted that having an office based romance would affect the career prospects of those involved.
Other activities staff confessed to doing at the Christmas party included 10% who had stripped off, 31% who had confessed a secret to someone they wish they hadn't, and 26% had engaged in some dodgy karaoke.
Whilst over half of party goers revealed that they had done something embarrassing and made a fool out of themselves in front of their peers and superiors having got too carried away in the festivities.
