CITY VIEWS: IS YOUR EMPLOYER LAYING ON SPECIAL WORLD CUP VIEWING FACILITIES?

“At the last World Cup my employer had the matches on in the boardroom and let us watch the games from there. There aren’t many games during my working hours during the group stages. It’s quite a sensible idea to have the games on at work – if nothing else, it saves us from spending our own money in the pub.”

“I’ll watch as many of the games as I can. Ideally I would watch every game, but I’m going on holiday just before the first England match. My employer doesn’t make any provisions for people to watch games at work, but I have worked for companies in the past that have given people the choice to watch their own country play.”

“I will definitely try to watch the England and Japan games. I have heard that some companies are allowing their employees to watch the games at work – it’s great for productivity. Football is without doubt the number one sport in Europe, and there is no point in stopping employees from watching their own teams.”
