Step One Survey II
Before hiring an employee, how much do you really know about their integrity, substance abuse, reliability and work ethic?
Employee surveys reflect these harsh realities of your applicant pool:
- 56% of working people admit they have lied to their supervisors
- 41% say they have falsified reports
- 64% admit using the Internet for personal reasons during work hours
- 35% have stolen from their employers, by their own admission
- 31% abuse drugs or alcohol
The Enemy Within
Recent industry estimates indicate that nearly 80% of computer crime is committed by “insiders”, at an estimated annual cost from $100 million to as much as $1 billion. More than 1/3 of all companies cited that they were “stolen out of business” by their employees.
Upper Levels Pose Highest Risk
Employee theft and fraud averages about $2000 per employee each year from your bottom line. While rank-and-file employees have opportunities to steal relatively small amounts, executives may embezzle tens of thousands, even millions of dollars from their employers.
What questions can you ask?
Increasing numbers of lawsuits have made it extremely difficult, even illegal, for you to ask the important questions used to determine the integrity of a job candidate. Past employers can be held liable for information they give you. If you choose to avoid hiring suspicious candidates, can you prove that you did not discriminate?
