Sector fares well against others when it comes to expletives
Charity workers won’t be cursing to discover their sector is the least likely to use profanity, according to a new survey.
And, even on the odd occasion they do turn the air blue, it is most likely with the word sh*t, avoiding stronger expletives.
The results reveal workers in Accountancy, Banking and Finance are guiltiest of popping a profanity in during a team video call or meeting.
