Employee theft has long been recognized as a major threat to business profitability. Each year, employers lose billions of dollars to worker theft, embezzlement, and other forms of pilfering. Unfortunately, most employers are so busy guarding against outside threats that they rarely give internal theft the serious consideration it deserves. And once money or merchandise has disappeared, it may be too late for a company to recover all that it’s lost. Fortunately, there are ways to detect and prevent employee theft, and an experienced security services firm can play an important role in your theft mitigation strategy.
