Workplace Theft...Are Your Employees Biting the Hand That Feeds Them?
Are you a victim of workplace theft? If you own or operate a business, chances are you’ve had something stolen. An estimated 79% of workers admit either stealing or they’ve considered stealing from their employer. And while they might never think that the stapler or legal pad they pilfer means anything, CNN reported that one out of every three businesses goes out of business because of employee theft. Even worse, the cheating culture has created an atmosphere that dissuades whistle blowers from coming forward and exposing this extremely pervasive practice that costs upwards to $600 billion a year.
The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners' (ACFE) 2002 Report to the Nation on Occupational Fraud and Abuse indicates that while large corporations suffer significant losses due to employee theft, small businesses tend to be the most popular targets of workplace fraud—with average losses of $127,500. Of the incidents considered in the study, more than 50 percent resulted in losses of “at least $100,000 and nearly one in six caused losses in excess of $1 million.”
