Over-ambitious workers make others insecure

Xoomworks BI mentioned in HRmagazine  after the survey showed that a third (31%) admitted to sending emails outside of office hours to signal to others they have been working

Over-ambitious workers are making colleagues insecure about their performance, according to a report by business intelligence service provider Xoomworks.

The survey of 1,000 UK office employees found that 54% admit doing ‘competitive overtime’ by staying later than their colleagues to impress superiors. A third (31%) admitted to sending emails outside of office hours to signal to others they have been working.

This had a negative effect on the colleagues of the competitive overtimer; with 15% stating that seeing their co-workers engaging in such behaviour causes them to feel stressed, and 23% feeling the most uncomfortable when others came into work while ill. One in 10 (10%) employees found the most stressful behaviour of their colleagues to be working through their lunches and eating at their desk, despite 56% of respondents admitting they had done this themselves at least once.
