    given a choice, battalion of young people

    The common perception among the CEOs questioned is that teetotalers are more productive, efficient and competent. They stick to deadlines and are good at time management.
    Harsh Saxena*, operations head of an event management company in Okhla, which implemented the total abstinence rule six months ago, says, "The results are fabulous. Both efficiency and time management have improved".
    Says Sunil Arora*, director of an advertising agency in south Delhi, "Given a choice, I'd any day have a battalion of young people, but they shouldn't be the regular drunkard types." All for the better Debunking the myth that "creative types need to be two pegs down to think up marvelous concepts", Devan Khattar*, art director in a Noida-based ad agency says, "My team members are workaholics and not drinkaholics.

    Please explain the emboldened parts to me.

    Given a choice - If I could hire whomever, whenever, however I wanted without restriction
    I'd any day - I would always prefer to
    have a battalion of young people - have a full complement / staff of young employees.

    He disputes the suggestion that young people drink too much.
