Sticky fingers

Yup. We hire them. They come in all ages, both genders, and every ethnic and professional status. It could be taking pens, stacks of paper or toner, sharing proprietary information, or reselling larger items from the company stockroom. Use a qualified core value assessment tool coupled with a thorough background check to look for people with a history of sticky fingers. Remember, many thieves haven’t been caught—yet. Or, they were caught and the company didn’t file a police report. Safeguard your company and employees and inventory by being thorough during the selection process.
