Telling the truth about SME life today

Which department tops Santa’s naughty list this Christmas’s recent research reveals no stiff upper lip when it comes to work shenanigans. They couldn’t delve into specifics such as actual names, but they narrowed the naughty list down to departments.

Over half of IT workers confessed to fantasising about a colleague, a third of executives and client services are thinking about seducing someone in the office, and a third of marketing are considering sharing a sexual act in the work place.

Almost one in five IT workers also revealed that they are more likely to cop off with a colleague at the Christmas bash than any other time of the year. However, for those that dont hook up, ten per cent recall previous office shindigs ending up in a strip club.

But of all of the office departments, marketing have the most festive fumbles with 29 per cent pulling at the Christmas party. This year seems to be no exception with 35 per cent of the marketing team hoping to hook up with someone before 2015. A sensational 44 per cent of them even revealed that sexy underwear will be worn especially for the occasion.

The marketing department also tops the kink list, with 29 per cent describing themselves as very kinky.

But the 50 shades phenomenon has obviously not been lost on all British office workers. 40 per cent have tried blindfolds in the bedroom, 34 per cent use restraints, 37 per cent have played sex games, 50 per cent have experimented with sex toys, 30 per cent role play and 42 per cent have had sex in a public place.

Senior management are the most likely to sleep with a colleague, with over a quarter confessing to a Christmas romp. Customer services are slightly tamer topping the list of locking lips under the mistletoe. However, well over a third of office workers have admitted to kissing a team member.

The ‘nicest’ department was HR and surprisingly, receptionists and PAs were more sensible than their senior counterparts with 44 per cent confessing that they are not as kinky as they would like to be, despite the ‘sexy secretary’ stereotype.

Below is the office department naughty list:

  1. Marketing
  2. Client services
  3. Customer services
  4. IT
  5. Sales
  6. Finance
  7. Senior management
  8. Reception/PA/Admin
  9. HR

Beware though, the Mirror recently revealed the names most likely to top the naughty or nice list.

For women, Amy, Georgia and Emma are the three ‘nicest’, while those called Ella, Bethany and Eleanor are the naughtiest. And for men, Jacob, Daniel and Thomas top the nice list, while Joseph, Cameron and William are the naughtiest.
