Employment Screening

Why does it always seem that the most trusted employee is the one stealing the most from the company?

Occupational fraud can happen at any time and by the people you least expect.  According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’ 2012 Report to the Nation, 5% of a company’s revenue loss is attributed to occupational fraud each year.  Worldwide that equates to $3.5 trillion dollars.  Worse yet, according to the ACFE 81% of these frauds could have been prevented by implementing simple internal risk management controls including such tools as employment screening.
