    With an organized system for employees to anonymously report colleagues’ wrongdoings, people are more likely to come forward

    With an organized structure, employees and managers always having someone above them to hold them responsible for their actions, theft is less likely to occur

    With managers promoting a sense of community in the workplace and highlighting the company values from the start, employees are less likely to steal

    With police targeting organized crime families who develop large complex employee theft schemes, employee theft drops on large levels
