The less satisfied people are at work the more likely they are to lie to others at the office, according to a new workplace survey.

The less satisfied people are at work the more likely they are to lie to others at the office.

That's according to a recent survey from Simply Hired.

Of more than 1,000 people, 41% say they are not satisfied at work - and say they tell at least one white lie a week.

And the most common lie?

The kind that buys time away from colleagues, like "I'm not feeling well" or "I already have plans after work."
