Employees may steal from their peers, managers, subordinates, any other employee, and even a customer or client. Strange personal behaviors while at work. If employees begin acting secretively or start acting defensive, it may be worthwhile to monitor their behavior a little more closely.
Theft of time can also come in the form of unauthorized use of company computers and personal smartphones by employees on company time. Astonishingly, nearly 80% of those surveyed admitted to engaging in some sort of personal activity via computer or phone while at work. While this type of activity may seem to be done in nominal blocks of time, with five minutes here or there, these minutes add up and may result in hundreds of hours of lost productivity and time for a company over the course of a year. The advent of social media, virtually non-existent in 1999, has further encouraged the theft of time by employees, with 63% of those surveyed admitting to having checked their Facebook, Twitter or similar accounts during work hours.
For a business, forgery typically takes place when an employee issues a check without proper authorization. Criminals will also steal a check, endorse it and present for payment at a retail location or at the bank teller window, probably using bogus personal identification.
The study also revealed that, although companies have protocols in place to prevent data breaches, many employees often break company policy. Fifty-three percent of companies said employees use company-issued devices to send business-related information to personal email and cloud-based file-sharing accounts, such as Gmail and DropBox.
Employees sometimes falsify records or perform actions that result in receipt of payment for work they didn’t do. Some employees request reimbursement of travel or other expenses unrelated to work such as reimbursement of a business lunch that was actually a personal meal. Employee thieves will also fill out time sheets with hours they didn’t work or take extra breaks and fail to deduct the time. In addition, employees can steal by taking personal phone calls, chatting with co-workers or surfing the Internet for hours instead of working.
All of the methods described above cover intentional data theft by employees. However, an employee may also inadvertently expose confidential data by installing software onto his or her computer. Over half of all respondents to the Ponemon Institute’s survey admitted to downloading personal internet software to their company computers. Many of these programs contain a trojan horse or other malware which seeks out confidential data and copies it to data caches on the Internet for retrieval by unauthorized individuals.
Video Surveillance: The small business owner may consider other, more creative ways of supervising the work area, such as maintaining video surveillance of its employees in the workplace. However, the video surveillance cannot include sound, as surveillance using sound recording has been found to violate an individual’s right to privacy. Video surveillance must be limited to areas which are not inherently private in nature, such as a dressing room or a bathroom.
Fortunately, modern video cameras are affordable and easy to install. Some providers of video surveillance equipment even offer package and volume discounts, saving retail stores even more. Today’s prices and technology advancements make complete coverage of a store a true reality.
Surveillance cameras are highly beneficial in preventing acts of shoplifting, or at the very least, giving your security staff a way to identify people who have shoplifted and left the store. By placing cameras throughout the store, security staff can keep a close eye on customers to ensure they’re not trying to hide goods in their purses, jacket pockets, or other personal belongings. Having these cameras in places where they are visible to customers may also prevent the customer from even attempting to shoplift for fear of being caught.
Good well maintained security systems can significantly cut down on employee theft and help to prosecute those who steal anyways.
