CEOs Who Cheat on Their Partners Also Cheat at Work, Says Study

Sure, chances are we all know someone who has cheated or been cheated on. You probably didn’t know that people who cheat on their significant others might also be more inclined to cheat at work. At least CEOs, anyway.

New findings from a study jointly produced by Emory University and the University of Texas at Austin suggest that there is some truth to the stereotype surrounding bad, brazen bosses in designer duds. It isn’t just CEOs, either.

As it turns out, crooked cops aren't escaping notice either. The study stretched beyond the boundaries of the business world, including police officers in the sample of 11,000 souls. Joining the twisted arm of the law were a pool of brokers, corporate executives from all sectors, and those convicted of white-collar crimes.

The data pool was cross-referenced against the information released to the public by the notorious Ashley Madison leak of 2015. If you need a reminder, Ashley Madison is a dating service which exclusively targets married men and women looking for love and sex outside of the boundaries of their union.

The result? Whether they were on the take at work or simply bending the rules to their advantage, people who were willing to step out on the love of their life for something a bit spicier were also more likely to skirt conventions in the workplace. Study author John Griffin made this point directly in his remarks on the results.

“Our study indicates cheating in one context carries over to cheating in others ... We’re not trying to debate ethics or lecture people,” Griffin said. “All we’re doing is examining the data and the data is fairly strong.”

For example, four times as many folks accused of having violated securities laws between 2010 and 2015 were found to have active Ashley Madison accounts when compared to a control group — a control group which worked in the same financial sector and shared a similar work history. Top business executives like CEOs and CFOs who held Ashley Madison accounts were literally twice as likely to be named or focused on in a class action securities lawsuit for the years 2008 through 2014. Finally, brokers who dabbled in adultery were also much more likely to have stained employment records, as far as the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority was concerned.

But perhaps the numbers reflect nothing more than personal carelessness on the part of the chronic cheaters. Davia Temin of crisis consultancy firm Temin & Co. spoke plainly on the subject. “If you’re foolish to put your name into such a site, you’re foolish enough to make other mistakes.”

And as for Ashley Madison's slogan of “Life is short. Have an affair,” it may be more apt to say that those who do end up taking the bait may end up with more than they can handle — both at home and at the workplace.

Leak or no leak, it looks like cheaters never prosper – unless they can convince regulatory bodies — and their partners — otherwise.
