Tom Brokaw has declared the 21st century as the Century of Women. The Pew Research Center just published a study showing that 40% of women are primary breadwinners. Most people won’t begin to think that with this progress comes other not-so-good statistics such as the increase in women embezzlers. In a 10-year period, women embezzlement arrests rose over 40% while male embezzlement arrests only rose 2%. Women now have access to funds and are in positions where embezzlement is generally most prevalent.
Kelly will show you what to look for in your business to make sure your most trusted employee is not a pink collar criminal.
