Your employees are loyal and upstanding.
They would never steal from you, right?
It turns out that some American employees are not above stealing from their company. According to a recent survey of 2,000 American adults, one-quarter of the respondents reported taking company property for personal use.
If one in four adults is willing to admit that they’ve stolen company property, it’s likely that someone in your company has taken something from your office.
You probably already have measures to prevent employees from stealing. There are basic steps, such as designing your office to minimize theft and regulated training for all employees.
In addition to these basics, you can prevent your risk of employee theft by improving your hiring process. Strengthening your screening process helps you rule out unreliable candidates and select more trustworthy employees.
