Theft is a global problem costing businesses throughout the world billions of dollars every year. Employee theft is so devastating that numerous organisations have had to close their doors or even declare bankruptcy. Every year surveys and polls are conducted to examine just how much loss is experienced and to develop strategies that can minimise the occurrences of occupational theft. Businesses and workers are equally negatively impacted.
Workers are already faced with the challenge of completing their jobs successfully in any given day; it becomes even more difficult when they become distracted by security concerns. Employees should be able to leave their personal possessions at their desk, in a locker or at their station and return to find them undisturbed. This is not the case for many employees in Jamaica and unfortunately a pestering reality for a group of workers at one tertiary institution. This calls for proper strategies to be implemented to safeguard against repetitive future occurrences.
