Course Description

Course Description

In this online continuing education course, we are going to tackle a topic that doesn’t factor into many senior financial leaders' agendas all that often or until something happens, that is, fraud in the workplace. 

While there is non-occupational fraud on one side, occupational fraud on the other side is a giant global industry.  Organizations are losing an estimated 5% of revenues to employee fraud each year according to the experts at the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ASFE). 

Does that statistic shock you?

Are you in disbelief that the number could be so high? 

Why do Employees commit Fraud?

How do good people go bad?

An obvious answer is agreed. But many so-called greedy people do not lie, cheat and steal to get what they want. There is a theory based on a 20-year-old Hollinger and Clark study of 12,000 employees in the workforce. It found that nearly 90% engaged in “workplace deviance,” which included behavior such as goldbricking, workplace slowdowns, sick time abuses, and pilferage. On top of that, an astonishing one-third of employees had stolen money or merchandise on the job.

The researchers concluded the most common reason employees committed fraud had little to do with opportunity, but more with motivation—the more dissatisfied the employee, the more likely he or she was to engage in criminal behavior.

In this online CPE/CPD webinar, experienced instructor Blair Cook will discuss how employees are doing it, how we can detect it, and most importantly, what can be done to prevent it in the first place.  We will use the research of the ASFE to look at the fraud cases under investigation to reach a deeper understanding of this issue.  You will be astounded, and you may be surprised, but the goal of this CPE course is to make you enlightened.
