Overview : Lack of employee integrity and work ethic costs businesses billions of dollars every year. From heads of corporations, and positions of trust to front-line employees, we see examples of fraud, theft, embezzlement, and compromising investor and public trust.
Since most of the fraud goes undetected, sometimes for years, employers are looking increasingly to find ways to mitigate losses that erode profits due to this problem. Clearly, screening and identifying individuals that exhibit behaviors of high integrity, who have strong work ethic, are reliable and drug free, translates into increased profitability and enhanced performance.
While excellent for checking criminal records, falsified educational credentials, and other serious liabilities, background checks only reveal information after an individual has been caught being deceitful. Of greater or equal value is discovering the underlying attitudes and past undiscovered actions of potential employees to most fully protect your organization against negligent hiring lawsuits. In this way, you guarantee that you are hiring reliable, ethical, and hard-working employees.
This session will help you:
Mitigate and control loss due to employee fraud
Why should you attend: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates that 75% of employees steal from the workplace and that most do so repeatedly. And this theft is not always from what may appear to be obvious places such as in front-line cash-register type positions. Theft applies to direct and indirect theft of company data, goods, money, time and resources, and is carried out by the entire employee spectrum - from blue collar to white. Fraud can refer to skimming, larceny, billing schemes, workman’s comp claims, fraudulent health claims, forgery, embezzlement, etc.
