What would you do if you saw your best friend stealing company property

What would you do if you saw your best friend stealing company property? Unfortunately this is a big problem that cost companies millions of dollars every year.

Why would a person with a great job, benefits and job security steal? There are countless excuses and none of them are acceptable. I felt I wasn’t being paid what I am worth, bills are overwhelming, need money for tires on my car and to feed my family to name a few.

We all at one time or another face financial issues and stealing will never resolve the problem. The sad thing frequently is that associates are observing this and make the wrong decision. It’s my friend and I know they need the job, I will talk with them and have them put it back. That isn’t the right decision; you are now as guilty as the person stealing.

 When someone steals they are stealing from the company, stockholders and the associates of the company. This means that they are stealing from you and friends don’t steal from one another.

The only correct decision is to immediately report someone that is stealing to a person of authority. I sincerely believe in recognizing associates that have the moral courage to make the right decision. They have exhibited outstanding moral character and the type of leader I am looking for to put in positions of increased responsibility.

Prosecution should be mandatory and there should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that you will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. It is the greatest deterrent you have to keep honest people honest and thieves will have no desire to be a part of your company.
