Eating out of your lap – IT sector workers are the biggest flirts

The old adage ‘most deals are done of the golf course’ may be true for lawyers, but it certainly isn’t the case for IT professionals. According to a new survey carried out by PizzaExpress, the restaurant chain, IT staff are more likely to entertain clients and contacts at a lap-dancing club.

Not only that, IT sector workers are also the biggest flirts. According to the survey, designed to demystify the art of business lunching in the 21st century, 45% of IT sector workers admitted to getting saucy over lunch and 34% said they were likely to talk about sex during the meal – the highest polling of any group. But, the tactics seem to be working. One in six IT sector respondents said that their flirting has won them new business.
