How to Minimize Pilferage by Employees in a Medium-Sized Business Enterprise

Pilferage by employees can cause major losses in a medium-sized business enterprise. This being the case, you (as a person setting up such a medium-sized business enterprise) need to figure out strategies for minimizing employee pilferage.

One strategy for minimizing pilferage by employees in a medium-sized business enterprise would be that of putting in place proper checks and balances. The goal here would to ensure that the employees are aware of the existence of such checks and balances. That should, in turn, discourage them from pilfering: knowing that, thanks to the checks and balances, they are bound to be caught if they pilfer.

Another strategy for minimizing pilferage by employees in a medium-sized business enterprise would be that of educating the employees, so that they can get to see that pilferage is simply not worthwhile. If you can’t reach them all in person, you can email them exhortations to this effect. This way, if an employee goes to, say, his or her SBCGlobal email account, at Sbcglobal.net, and logs into his or her Sbcglobal.net email, they find your message with, among other things, exhortations against pilferage. That way, they are discouraged from engaging in pilferage. Or you can print the anti-pilferage messages, and sent them to the employees through the US Postal Service.

Yet another strategy for minimizing pilferage by employees in a medium-sized business enterprise would be that of seeing to it that employees who are caught pilfering are severely penalized. The idea would be to have them serve as examples to the others: so that the rest of the employees see what is likely to happen to them, if they are caught pilfering.This should create deterrence.
