How do your colleagues really feel about after-work drinks?
New research by events company Togather shows that 35% of Brits find going for a post-work pint “boring” and “a waste of time”.
“Workplace events have evolved way beyond get-togethers; they are now recognised as crucial for fostering a productive workforce,” says Hugo Campbell, co-founder of Togather.
“Our data shows that one in three employees would feel significantly more engaged with their workplace if social events received more investment.
“This places the onus on business owners to create workplace events that are truly captivating and inclusive, reflecting the value they place on their employees. It is no longer sufficient to rely on beige buffets, standard holiday celebrations, or the usual Friday night trips to the pub. Instead, businesses must provide meaningful experiences that genuinely demonstrate appreciation for their staff.”
