Ambition without limits

People need to be very careful when looking for a job, but companies also need to know who they are hiring, because the truth is that there are no perfect employees. However, there are always worse than others, so that more and more frauds are being carried out within the organizations themselves.

The workers of the companies are its main fraudsters. About 60% of business fraud cases are committed by the employees themselves. According to a study by the company KPMG, in most cases it is due to errors in the control systems of the company since the fragility of internal anti-fraud controls is presented as a great opportunity to commit crimes. In addition to the opportunity, this organization refers that there are two more reasons that favor this type of behavior, motivation, and rationalization.

Obviously when we talk about companies that have been defrauded it is supposed to be the big companies, however, that thought is incorrect since not only large companies are affected by this type of scam, because although it is in proportion to each one, both large and small companies suffer the attacks of fraudsters. So, all care is little in the labor market.

Fortunately, there are ways to trace the profile of the fraudster. Do you have workers between 36 and 45 years of age in your company? With a seniority of at least 6 years in the entity? Is your position in the area of marketing, operations or finance? And finally, it remains to know, do you have any managerial responsibility? Therefore, if the answers are all affirmative then it is necessary to be on guard since it is before the most frequent profile of a fraudster. And unfavorably almost half of them have unlimited authority within the company.

So to combat fraud in organizations, KPMG specialists ensure that the following points should be taken into account:

  • Examine fraud risks proactively and periodically.
  • Use technology.
  • Know and choose the third parties with whom the company is related based on criteria of integrity and ethics.
  • Stay alert to detect and know how to put protection measures against these internal threats.

Actually many people the more they have more want to have, not even think about the likelihood that their actions are harmful to others, not only for companies in themselves but also for the people who run them, promoting the Bite the hand that feeds them.
