A few weeks ago the Mainichi News on-line reported the following:

To have alcohol with a boss was a kind of work. In an opinion poll carried out by the Takara Shuzo (
) on new recruits in the working world, more than 60 percent answered that in
practice they regarded the drinking session with their boss as an extension of
work. On the other hand, the bosses who were guiding the junior staff thought
that their subordinates had participated because they liked the drinking
session, a difference in consciousness was clear. Kyoto
Takara Shuzo said that "although it seems that a new recruit to the working world has a strong consciousness to think that a drinking party is obligatory, I want them to memorize little by little the pleasure in drinking with the boss".
Respectively the poll asked 189 recruits new to the working world and 197 employees who had been working for five years or more that "why answer the invitation from the boss", and "what do you think why a subordinate responds to a boss's drinking invitation". The survey was done on the Internet through some external investigating firms.
The survey result is interesting.
