1 in 27

A recent survey reported that in 2016, 1 out of every 27 employees was apprehended for stealing from their employers.  2016 Retail Theft from CSA

Here is a link to the survey. 29th Annual Retail Theft Survey

There are some amazing facts in these articles.  But what it left me wondering was how many of these employees fully intended to steal from the company when they were hired? Or how many got the jobs simply to steal from the retailers?  Is there something during the hiring process that can be done to weed these people out (that is legal and ethical)?

I wish I had some answers, but I don’t.  But this is something to consider when you do your next hiring.
