Employee fraud is a far greater problem than we might imagine. Whether it is falsifying expenses, stealing money and company inventory or offering unauthorised discounts on merchandise, incidents of fraud are widespread and affecting organisations large and small. So much so that research shows that the typical organisation will lose 5% of its annual revenue each year due to employee fraud and it is estimated that in the UK alone, losses due to fraud in 2013 amounted to an astonishing £73billion. Whilst the great majority of employees are honest and loyal to their employer, there are still many reasons why people commit fraud and various ways in which they might do it. Education, prevention and detection are crucial to stopping this happening and avoiding the associated financial and personal loss. Our Fraud Awareness for Managers eLearning will help your managers to understand the problem, to be able to identify the triggers that can cause incidents of fraud and know how to report and manage any incidents that may occur.
