Firms told to cut down on alcohol at work parties
Businesses are being urged to limit the amount of alcohol served at work social events in order to prevent people from acting inappropriately towards others. The warning from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) comes as it releases a new poll, suggesting a third of managers have seen harassment or inappropriate behaviour at parties. Women were more likely than men to say they had witnessed this behaviour. The CMI's boss said alcohol "doesn't need to be the main event" at parties.
