A new poll has revealed the cost of employee theft to British businesses, as well as personal theft between colleagues. Two thirds of UK office-based employees confessed that they had stolen from their workplace, with 11 per cent of these revealing that they had stolen personal items from colleagues.
Initially, all respondents were asked ‘Have you ever stolen anything from your office?’ to which more than two thirds of respondents, 67 per cent, admitted that ‘yes’ they had.
The Business Minister announced the new Index alongside the EO One Year On Report at a launch event at the City of London today. The Index will enable investors to easily identify the 69 UK public companies listed on the London Stock Exchange that have at least three per cent of their issued share capital held by, or for, the benefit of employees other than main board directors.
