Check out some results from a new survey on workplace ethics. Two-thirds of people say they'd admit it if they made a major mistake at work that cost the company time or money. But 32% would stay quiet and hope no one noticed and 1% would blame someone else.
If a coworker made a major mistake at work, 5% of people would report them to the boss to get the problem fixed and 2% would report them to the boss to try to make themselves look good in comparison.
82% of people say the most expensive things they've stolen from work are office supplies. But 3% have stolen money. 2% have stolen computers. 2% have stolen furniture. 29% of people look at their coworkers' computer monitors over their shoulder. 14% have gone through a coworker's desk.
