If so, looks like 79% of working America needs to be whacked.

"Only about 21% of employees are basically honest and will never steal."


Studies show that not only do employees steal, but also they outsteal shoplifters.

Employees readily admitted to stealing cash and stock and those surveyed indicated that these practices are increasing at an alarming rate. Only about 21% of employees are basically honest and will never steal. 13% are fundamentally dishonest and undoubtedly attempt theft, and the remaining 66% are encouraged to steal if they see others doing it without repercussion.

Amongst those surveyed were employees who admitted stealing from their present or former employers, yet few of these employees, less than 5%, had a criminal record of any kind for a theft related offence. They were asked to explain the reasons behind their theft and what made an otherwise loyal and honest individual feel the need to steal when placed in a work environment.

For some questioned the reason for theft was pure greed, for others it was vindictiveness, and surprisingly for only a small percentage it was need.

These findings support RPS’s strategy which has always been to identify and target the employees that will always steal in order to create a real deterrent to persuade the majority to remain honest. It also highlights why a pro-active approach is the only way to tackle the issue of workplace fraud.

not shot but chopping off a hand doesn't seem too far out of line.

Well maybe if guns, ammo, and accessories weren’t so damn expensive I wouldn’t have the need to steal from my employer – do they stop and consider that? Nooooooo.

Time to go to the company bathroom and use twice as much TP as necessary.

Is black scorching asphalt close enough to night?
