Dry January in your workplace

Five million people in the UK take on a Dry January each year. So how many of your employees have already taken part or might consider taking part in Dry January 2019?

Why run Dry January in your workplace?

Getting the whole team involved in Dry January is a great opportunity. So much can come from the team taking a month off booze together:

  • More energy leading to better performance
  • Reduced absenteeism and lost productivity from alcohol, which are estimated to cost businesses £7.3bn each year
  • Social ties between employees that aren't based around just drinking
  • A greater understanding of your legal responsibilities as an employer
  • Plus you can raise money for Alcohol Change UK and one of our six partner charities

Ideas for running Dry January in your workplace

  • Appoint a Dry January Champion to be responsible for driving the campaign on behalf of your workplace
  • Organise a dry event for your colleagues
  • Run a quiz about alcohol
  • Set up a competition between your staff members and give prizes to the employees who donate/raise the most for charity
  • Make a pledge wall – find an empty board in the staff room and make a poster, asking everyone to write their name if they are planning to take part. Collect as many names as you can
