Survey: Older Workers Less Likely To Take Office Supplies for Personal Use

Older workers are less likely to make off with office supplies for personal use than younger workers, and they are more prone to feel guilty about it, according to a survey conducted by Spherion Corporation and Harris Interactive.

According to the survey of 1,630 employed adults, 18% report having taken office supplies for personal use in the past year, but when broken down by age, nearly a quarter of workers 18 to 29 report that they have taken supplies compared with 13% of workers age 50 and over. In addition, 17% of those 18 to 29 don't believe taking office supplies for their own use is wrongwere unapologetic versus only 7% of older workers at least 50.
