One more for the road: Hospitality, Alcohol & the Workplace

One more for the road:

"Anybody who has worked in hospitality has longed for a knock-off drink after a busy night on the floor, but what are the knock-on effects of the industry's penchant for excessive drinking?"

Article featured on my favorite website

When researching this article I was extremely surprised to find how many people were unwilling to talk about the prevalence of alcohol misuse in the hospitality industry- it seems the general attitude is very much 'if you can't stand the heat...'

And as one source put it; "We join this industry for a reason and we know that we'll be surrounded by alcohol [and other substances], if you're not up to it, then you've joined the wrong industry."
