新2代理网站Some ambitious office workers will stop at nothing to get ahead.

為了晉升,一些野心勃勃的辦公室人員會不擇手段。

And the use of email has provided an entire new box of dirty tricks for employees hoping to climb the career ladder.

新2代理网站電子郵件的使用,給那些想往上爬的職員們提供了一個耍花招的新途徑。

新2代理网站Pushy office workers keen to impress bosses are increasingly using ‘ego mail’ as a way to get ahead of their colleagues.

新2代理网站愛出風頭的員工熱衷于討好老板,而且越來越頻繁地使用“郵件自薦”以趕超其他同事。

新2代理网站And it seems men are the worst offenders.

新2代理网站在這場角逐中,男性職員好像更加肆意妄為。

新2代理网站Showing off – or showing a colleague up - by copying management into an email thread is becoming more common, according to a study from a Cambridge scholar.

新2代理网站一位劍橋學者的一項研究表示,通過把郵件抄送給管理人員,從而推銷自己、或是把某位同事比下去的方式,已越來越普遍。

新2代理网站Professor David De Cremer, of Cambridge University’s Judge Business School, found that workers who regularly CC, or ‘carbon copy,’ their boss into email replies do so to unsettle their co-workers.

劍橋大學賈奇商學院的教授大衛.德.克萊莫發現,經常把郵件抄送給老板的職員是為了給其他同事使絆兒。

‘This finding suggests that when your co-workers copy your supervisor very often, they may be doing so strategically, as they consciously know what the effect will be on you,’ he wrote in the Harvard Business Review.

新2代理网站“這說明,當你的同事經常把郵件抄送給老板,他們也許是在耍手段,因為他們知道這樣做會對你產生什么樣的影響”,克萊莫在《哈佛商業評論》上寫道。

Men who ‘have no shame’ are far more likely to engage these underhand tactics than women, according to Professor Tom Jackson of Loughborough University.

拉夫堡大學教授湯姆.杰克遜說道,“寡廉鮮恥”的男性比女性更有可能采取這些不正當的詭計。

‘Anecdotally from our research I would say that males are much more focused on doing this. Females might know how to do it but maybe stop short of actually doing it.

“從我們的研究來看,我想說,男性更執著于這些勾當,女性可能知道怎么去做,但是她們在真要這么干的時候可能就停手了。”

‘Males have no shame - they just go ahead and do it,’ he said.

新2代理网站“男性沒有負罪感——他們想做就做了,”杰克遜說。

The method does seem to work, he added, because managers often remember pushier employees when promoting members of staff.

新2代理网站他還說,由于在提拔員工時,管理者往往記住的是那些更愛出風頭的員工,所以“郵件自薦”這個辦法似乎管用。

新2代理网站The ego email tactics could mean that women are missing out on promotions that are instead handed to male colleagues less embarrassed about using messages to show off.

新2代理网站郵件自薦策略意味著女性會錯失晉升機會,而男同胞會取而代之,因為他們在采取這個策略時,并不覺得難堪。

Some office workers go out of their way to email bosses at anti-social hours to show their commitment to the job.

新2代理网站一些辦公室職員會費盡心思地在非正常時間段內發郵件給上司,以表明自己對工作的熱情。

The study found that many would schedule messages to be sent to management late at night or early in the morning to make it appear they are working even when they are not.

研究發現,許多員工會把發送信息的時間設定在深夜或清晨,這樣就好像他們一直在工作,然而并不是。

新2代理网站This sort of behaviour could increase illness and stress in the workplace, according to experts.

新2代理网站專家稱這種行為會增加工作環境里的疾病和壓力。

David D’Souza, of human resources organisation the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, said ego emailing was a sign of an unhealthy working environment in which employees were ‘fearful’ for their jobs.

人力資源機構人事開發特許協會的大衛.蘇沙說,郵件自薦標志著一種不健康的工作環境,在這種環境下,員工會對自己的工作產生恐懼感。

新2代理网站‘It’s very important for organisations to make their decisions based on competence, not levels of self-promotion,’ he warned.

新2代理网站大衛.蘇沙警告說:“各個機構應該根據能力做出決策,而不是看‘自我推銷’的水平,這很重要。”
