'I get resentful' | Boss 'forces' drinking on post-work Zoom happy hour

Boss 'forces' drinking on post-work Zoom happy hour

Since the dawn of the pandemic, companies the world over have attempted to maintain internal company culture by introducing digital ‘social hours’ into the working week. Often, these take place on Fridays, and feature quizzes, games, chatting and the occasional alcoholic beverage.

And whilst this time in the week earmarked for non-work-related chat can be an effective way of keeping corporate cultural bonds alive, bosses must tread carefully in ensuring that they aren’t adding additional pressure to workers who are already going through the stress of the pandemic.
