This article is a great synopsis of the myriad of ways an employee can steal from their employer. Traditionally on this blog, I cover only digital means of theft, but Kessler International covers this issue far more comprehensively. 


Some staggering "while at work" stats to digest:


Employees and the Company's Time


  • 30% of employees falsify time records
  • 80% engage in personal activity
  • 62% have checked social media accounts
 
The first stat may be surprising, but it's certainly not unheard of for employees to falsify time records. The last two jibe with recent employee productivity survey data.
 
Employees and the Company's Assets
 
  • 52% have stolen office supplies
  • 35% have stolen goods or services from their employer
  • 18% have stolen corporate intelligence


The first two stats remind me of a story from one of our customers, a computer hardware manufacturer, who discovered an employee stealing company goods and selling them on ebay. While I was shocked when I first heard the story, it appears it's not that uncommon.


The last stat confirms what we already know about IP theft from a survey I covered recently.


With this much theft happening in businesses today, employers need to take steps to ensure they can both weed out the bad employees as quickly as possible, as well as detect when theft or fraud are occurring
