Are employees more competitive with their co-workers than they were 10 years ago? Almost half (46%) of senior executives interviewed for an OfficeTeam survey say employees are more competitive today:

Significantly more competitive          12%

Somewhat more competitive            34%

No change                                        24%

Somewhat less competitive              23%

Significantly less competitive              3%

Don’t know                                          4%

“A bit of healthy competition among staff can increase motivation and productivity, but, just as in sports, the overall results of the team are what count. Too much intramural competition creates tension and stands in the way of collaboration,” says Dave Willmer, executive director, OfficeTeam.
