Do you eat Al-Desko?

Do you eat Al-Desko?

Two-thirds of British office workers eat al-desko, but is it a good idea?

The average desktop harbours 20,961 germs per square inch and that’s in addition to 3,295 on the keyboard, 1,676 on a mouse and another 25,127 on the phone. That’s 400 times more than the average toilet seat.

Work kitchens are no better, as 2,483 germs per square inch were found on the handle of the kitchen kettle in a shared office compared to just 49 found on a toilet seat.

The worst offending department?  – Sales & Marketing! With over 20% of staff admitting they only clean their desk once a month.

Eating away from your desk not only means a more hygienic and tidier desk, going outside can also lead to a healthier and happier workforce.
