It’s no secret that employee theft and fraud are rampant in American companies, yet many business owners and managers still hang on to the idea that keeping things “in house” will allow them to retain control, and thereby security as well. Unfortunately for those businesses, the statistics show that this is downright false.
According to the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), an employee is 15 times more likely to steal from you than a non-employee! As Entrepreneur magazine’s 5 Ways to Avert Employee Theft and Fraud points out, you may be better off outsourcing sensitive functions, especially bookkeeping.
Leaving bookkeeping services up to an outside accounting company that specializes in business accounting may not only be a smart security move, but could also end up saving you money, time, and actually provide a better quality of service than your in-house accountant. Plus, you’ll know that one common motivation for fraud- resentment towards one’s boss- won’t be a factor in your company’s accounting!
Another important process to outsource is security. At Systematic Inquiry Group, we have a variety of programs and services to help you keep your business running smoothly and respond to security threats, both internal and external. From our Food Cost Program that helps Orange County restaurants reduce or eliminate food loss, to our corporate security retainer program that includes 24 hour crisis response, loss monitoring, and auditing surveillance system footage and logs, we are the best choice to improve your company’s security.
