Surprise, surprise, adulterers tend to work for less scrupulous companies.
Researchers at Tulane and Michigan State University took leaked Ashley Madison account information, anonymized corporate email addresses and counted them to see if the percentage of employees on Ashley Madison could predict certain attributes of company culture.
The researchers found that firms with higher percentages of employees on Ashley Madison also had higher levels of innovation, risk-taking and unethical behavior. These companies saw more tax disputes with the government and accounting misstatements. These firms were also rated as less ethical by external analysts, scoring twice as high in categories like concerns on bribery and fraud.
