Could organisation be the key to promotion?
It seems as though employers and their workers have different opinions when it comes to keeping their desks tidy.

A new survey conducted by Dymo has discovered that 32 per cent of employees think that having a messy desk makes them look busy.

However, 85 per cent of senior staff think that having an organised work space is the way to gain a promotion, Human Resources magazine reports.

It was also found that although 98 per cent of employers believe that organisation is key to productivity, workers believe they are less organised than themselves.

On a bigger scale, the survey revealed that for a quarter of European respondents, the UK is the least organised country on the continent.

Earlier this month, research by the Harvard School of Public Health found links between obesity and conditions in the workplace, such as whether or not employees have a fridge to store their own food.
