The article highlights results of a survey on the losses that can be incurred by companies in Great Britain from having their Christmas parties, conducted by hotel chain Travelodge. The poll revealed that staff who raise their glasses too often at the office party will cost the British economy £790 million in Christmas 2007. The survey of 4,500 employees also found that the average worker wastes two and a half hours staring into space the day after their office Christmas party because they are too hungover to work.
