With the holiday season upon us, it is more important than ever to be on guard for employee thefts. The holidays are stressful for everyone and the excess cash flowing into a business may look tempting….
The Theft Triangle is a simple thought process as to why people steal. The financial pressure of bills or having enough to pay for gifts is enough for an employee to begin to rationalize theft. They may feel mistreated, underappreciated, or think that the company is making enough to spare. All they need is the opportunity to present itself. The holiday season brings more traffic to various businesses and in the chaos an employee theft or manipulation of the drawer can go unnoticed.
