Lying | Half of UK staff have done THIS at work

Half of UK staff have done THIS at work

The workplace is an environment that thrives on honesty and clarity. Despite this, a new survey from Glassdoor has revealed that a shocking half of UK employees have lied at work, with primary reasons for doing so being to avoid getting into trouble and to hide mistakes.

So why have workers chosen to fib whilst working? The research found that 40% of employees who have lied at work have done so because it is easier to agree with the majority, and one-quarter because their boss or colleagues don’t like to hear diverse opinions.
