Who knew? A recent survey found that 87% of women would flirt with a male colleague if it meant they got their own way.
Read the article here.

What do you think about women using their best assets to get ahead of work?

Note : this does not involve sleeping with your boss. Loads of flirting though.

It's all about integrating both physical assets and and intelligent mind in order to get the best of what you can get in the workplace. :)

Thoughts?

I also think it was not proper specially if it could affect other employees too. Like if an attractive woman was promoted in managerial position without enough skill to manage well, she may ruined her entire department productivity. So it was not also healthy for the company unless she was the only employee. :p

This only shows how easy men are. It all started with Adam and Eve when Eve used her "best assets" to persuade Adam to do something that God had prohibited. But personally I think it's rather improper for a woman to get ahead by being flirty with her male colleagues. It will earn her a bad reputation with both male and female colleagues. Men would consider her a slut and women would alienate her. Being flirtatious with male colleagues to get ahead is a no-win situation.

There are quite a lot in a corporate world. :) And, I doubt if they felt guilty grabbing the position they aren't qualified. I witnessed discrimination in corporate when it comes to picking a right candidate for the job. Even if you have a long list of achievements in school, if the manager set a specific qualification for the HR (privately), I doubt it if you will get hire knowing your competitor is utterly attractive.

I do not know if it is quite as clear cut as that! For example, I consider myself an ethical and moral person and I would have said that I never flirt to get ahead. However, a few years ago a close female friend of mine pointed out to me that I do flirt with the men I was working and living with...very subtly but nonetheless: guilty! Well, as I told my friend: I am a nice person (could simply be that!).

I always dressed appropriately, never showed cleavage or anything but any woman would admit - men can be played. Just like women can be. My intention was never for gain, but I did enjoy the 'interaction', it made work more fun.

I would much rather live with integrity and focus on my intellectual and relational assets than on sex appeal. I work in a field dominated by women so sex appeal wouldn't get me that far anyways. As well, for those of you that are married like me, how does that weigh into your decision? I would consider it extremely disrespectful to my husband to flirt at work.
