Workers at the lowest rung of the company hierarchy are the biggest gossipers, while employees of all levels are also more likely to gossip to their superiors.

Georgia Tech Assistant Professor Eric Gilbert, the author of the study, said he was surprised that almost 15 per cent of emails are gossip.

"But then again, gossip is something we all do in every aspect of our lives," he said.
