The hidden costs of looking the other way

    • Make your workplace safe
    • Reduce employee apathy
    • Decrease employee theft
    • Reduce executive fraud
    • Foster workplace harmony
    • End negative conformity
  • What would you do if you saw your boss or a coworker stealing office supplies? How about petty cash? What if you witnessed sexual harassment? Or you knew someone was embezzling funds or committing a fraud on investors?

    Companies lose nearly 5% of their revenue each year to employee and executive fraud. And the personal cost of looking the other way can be even higher.

    The last thing most of us want to do when we see a wrongful act is to get involved. But by fostering an environment that rewards intervention, we can reduce both the personal and professional costs of bystander apathy.
