A survey of 1,600 office workers found that most believed there was a direct correlation between making drinks and being promoted.
The study by office supplies firm Viking also found that over half of workers were reluctant to offer to make a round of tea or coffee because colleagues had become more demanding with their orders.
The research showed that 41% of workers maintain they make their fair share of tea.
