STANDARD LUNCH HOUR 'KEY FOR PRODUCTIVITY'.

Byline: Neil Hodgson

AN employment lawyer is urging Merseyside bosses to "save the traditional lunch hour".

A poll by Employment Law Advisory Services (Elas) claims 90% of office workers no longer take their allotted break and most eat lunch at their desk.

Elas head of consultancy Peter Mooney says this leads to increased stress levels and lower productivity.

He said: "The days of office tea trolleys are long gone, making a mid-day break to eat and stretch your legs even more important.

"Employers must realise staff staying at their desk may appear eager and committed, but if they fail to take a decent break during the day, it could have an adverse effect on the whole business."
