Do You Steal From Your Work Place?
A major problems for employers is having their employees steal from the workplace. According to a recent survey, most people steal or have stolen something from their job-mostly office supplies.
Maybe you forgot to put the pen back on the desk or you accidentally take home some post it notes-that my friend is stealing. According to Banner Business Services, two thirds of us have stolen something from our place of employment.
It may seem like a stupid pen or a few paper clips, but these little items add up. So much so that it costs companies $3.2 billion a year. Yes, they lose that much money from stolen office supplies.
I was floored when I saw this, so I decided to find the most stolen items. According to a survey conducted by Banner Business Services, here are the most stolen items.
- Post It Notes
- Toilet Paper
- Copier Paper
- USB Memory Sticks
Out of these things, I figured pens would be number one and I never expected to see toilet paper on the list. Another thing that I thought would make the list was envelopes.
So have you ever stolen anything from work? If so, what did you take?
