GETTING AHEAD IN the world can obviously require some personal sacrifice.

However, a new survey suggests that Irish workers are not above committing a little subterfuge in order to get in their boss’ good books.

The YouGov report in question suggests that 37% of Irish professionals regularly stay in work late purely in order to create the impression of being a diligent worker.

But do you think this is an acceptable side-effect of the competition to get ahead? Or is pulling the wool over your company’s eyes doing no-one any favours?

We’re asking: Is staying late at work to convince your boss you’re a hard worker an acceptable thing to do?


Poll Results:

No (10337)
Yes (3466)
I don't know (715)
