Recent surveys of hourly employees reflect the harsh realities of your applicant pool:
- 56% of working people admit they have lied to their supervisors
- 41% say they have falsified records
- 64% admit using the Internet for personal reasons during working hours
- 35% have stolen from their employers, by their own admission
- 31% abuse drugs or alcohol
Additionally, upper-levels also pose high risk …employee theft and fraud averages about $2,000 per employee each year from your bottom line. While rank-and-file employees have opportunities to steal hard assets, executives may embezzle tens of thousands – even millions of dollars from their employers.
Recent industry estimates indicate that nearly 80% of computer crime is committed by “insiders,” at an estimated annual cost ranging from $100 million to as much as $1 billion. More than one-third of all companies declaring bankruptcy last year cited that they were "stolen out of business" by their employees.
