Sales stats from the UK’s leading online takeaway site show that office workers are working longer hours to safeguard their jobs; with more takeaways being delivered to offices later than ever before.

As the threat of redundancy looms for many office workers, sales statistics from the UK’s leading online takeaway portal, www.Just-Eat.co.uk show that late night work is the order of the day, with thousands of offices across the UK buying takeaway meals to eat as they work.

Post 5pm ordering from offices has risen by 236% in the last 6 months, compared to the 6 month period before that, with many employees eating their evening meals at their desks in a bid to complete their workload and safeguard their jobs.

In research of 1,304 office workers, 42% have worked late in the last month on more than 5 occasions, and 37% are worried about their job security given the current economic climate.

Pizza is the most popular takeaway choice to be delivered to offices, with 83% of sales attributed to the easy-to-share meal.

David Buttress, CEO of Just-Eat.co.uk said,

“More people are ordering from their desk than we’ve ever experienced. The ease of ordering a takeaway whilst having as little time away from working as possible has meant that our sales to offices after 5pm have rocketed, with pizzas being particularly popular, given the ability to easily share one with minimal fuss and distraction.

“Due to the fact that many people work away from their local home area where they are unaware of the surrounding takeaway restaurants, our service has ensured that the restaurants closest to their office which deliver are just a couple of clicks away.

www.Just-Eat.co.uk provides a quick and convenient service supplying customers with a large directory of varied restaurants and eateries in their area, which when selected provide the user with a full, up-to-date menu including prices. The site also gives the customer an estimated delivery time, as well as beverage options.
