CHICAGO, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Chicago-based Web site CareerBuilder said its survey indicates leaders of companies are more likely to part their hair on the right.

The Web site said the survey of 561 hiring managers in senior company positions, conducted online by Harris Interactive Aug. 16-Sept. 8, found the majority of those polled said they part their hair on the right, bring their own lunch from home, drive sport-utility vehicles and wear business casual attire to the office.

The survey found 36 percent of the respondents prefer their work clothing to be navy blue, while 26 percent wear black and 8 percent each prefer brown or gray.

CareerBuilder said 32 percent of the managers choose not to drink at company events while 26 percent sip glasses of wine, 22 percent drink beer, 18 percent reach for the mixed drinks, 5 percent drink martinis and 3 percent indulge in shots of liquor.

The survey had an error rate of 4.14 percentage points, with a 95 percent probability.
