BUSINESS THEFT...I went into a store the other day and had noticed on the ceiling all these black plastic bubbles. The eye in the sky watching over everything. Then, there are metal devices that are attached to the more expensive items that trigger an alarm if not detached or deactivated. Losses from theft are real
I COUNTED 25-30 EYE IN THE SKY
THIS IS NO JOKE
These losses can be real business killers. Many companies have gone under from lax security from both the public and the employee or insider. Furthermore, if anyone gains access to any online records, they can steal data or manipulate income and expense reports. Withdrawals or charges on peoples account can be made and not discovered timely
EMPLOYEES HELP THEMSELVES
Employees do more harm to the inner workings of an operation than the public at large is what the latest figures are showing. Being on the inside allows more latitude in the thieving process. Stealing supplies, food, items, and even time by claiming hours not worked are reported.
DETERRENT TO EMPLOYEE THEFT
Giving the employees discounts makes for buying instead of lying. In restaurants, feeding them helps reduce theft. In one restaurant, everyone sat down to a family meal before opening. Then, off to work. In another, they all work hard and then right after lunch rush, sit down to a generous meal. No need to steal...
It appears that where there is an opportunity, some people will take it if they give in to the temptations. Our local newspapers are filled with embezzlement stories. They all get caught in the end. It is just a matter of time. Amounts vary from thousands to nearly a million stolen and undetected for quite some time
Running a business comes with known and unknown risks...
