In a study of 1,010 U.S workers, the top five industries that allow and sponsors alcohol consumption the most are Technology, Construction, Marketing, Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation, and Information Services and Data Processing. At certain companies that fall into one of these five categories, alcohol consumption doesn’t stop at the holiday parties and happy hours. Beer on tap in the office and alcohol being rewarded to employees for performing well are among a few of the examples. The survey found that 24 percent of respondents said drinks were part of team bonding events and 50 percent of respondents agreed that drinking with their boss or coworkers will improve their relationship.
