||This report presents the results of a survey of alcohol consumption among employees in a sample of 45 firms in Great Britain. Results are discussed in relation to drinking behaviour, effects of alcohol on work performance, sickness and absence due to alcohol, comparison between higher- and lower-drinking companies, alcohol-related attitudes, workplace culture and alcohol policies. Firms differed markedly in drinking cultures and other drinking-related variables. Alcohol policies need to take into account differences among firms in terms of workforce culture, attitudes and the nature of the work being carried out.
