Business is booming, revenue is up, and your company is seeing growth quarter after quarter. You have the best employees a boss could ask for in this recovering economy.
Or do you?

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce released data showing that a staggering 75% of all employees admit to stealing at least once, and half of those steal repeatedly. So if you have 10 employees, statistically at least 3 of those employees could be repeatedly enjoying more compensation from your business than you’ve agreed to.

Numbers don’t lie….but your employees do

On a per case basis, dishonest employees steal almost 6 times the amount stolen by shoplifters. Your loyal U.S. workforce is responsible for $40 billion dollars annually in corporate loss and over 1/3 of these employees stealing your stuff is your ambitious management team. 33% of businesses declaring bankruptcy in the United States are doing so as a result of employee theft according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
But fear not, we have solutions! Here are our top 4 “must-do’s” to protect your business against the fastest growing crime in America.

  • Purchase a surveillance system
    An employee is far less likely to remove items from the workplace if they know they are being watched. Investing in a few cameras around your business could go a long way in keeping your hard earned investments where they belong.
  • Screen your employees
    It is a fact that past behavior is the best indication of future performance. Demand rigorous background testing in your hiring process to ensure you have an honest team on board.
  • Open door policy
    You’re not always able to integrate yourself among your employees to see everything that is happening so you’ll need help identifying those dishonest employees. Employees are far more connected with one another than you will be as an employer. Implement an open door policy that is conducive to making a whistle-blower feel protected if he or she comes forth with information about dishonest behavior in the workplace.
