There's more than working going on in the workplace, according to a new survey.

A survey of 5,700 workers by online job site CareerBuilder.com found nearly one-half (45 per cent) of workers admit to falling asleep on the job, while 21 per cent admit to putting something stronger than coffee in their mugs.

"As companies continue to embrace more casual environments, employees may develop a false sense of informality when it comes to the office behaviour," said Rosemary Haefner, vice-president of HR at CareerBuilder.com.
