When you think about business security, you probably focus on preventing theft of goods by customers, or those looking to break in and steal things. But this is not the only potential source of dishonesty you might encounter.

It is rare for employees to steal things from their employers, but with that said, we all know it can happen. Installing CCTV cameras inside your business as well as outside means you can protect your livelihood and investment. Very few businesses will be affected by internal theft. So, if you get CCTV installed in key positions inside your shop, warehouse, or other type of business premises, the chance of being affected drops even further.

How easy is it for an employee to steal from you?

No one wants to think an employee is stealing from them. This could be someone you have employed for a while – someone you trust to lock up at night, or to operate the till. But things like this can and do happen, and many employers say they are shocked when they realise what has occurred. Even if the person is caught and admits theft, there is a chance the stolen funds or goods may never be returned.

Therefore, your business could potentially be at risk if you are one of the unlucky ones to be targeted by a dishonest employee. Wouldn’t it be better to reduce that risk as much as possible by relying on CCTV cameras to police your business when you cannot? After all, you cannot be everywhere at once, and most honest employees would have no problem with CCTV in their workplace. They understand the need for it, and the fact it could provide crucial evidence if someone was to attack them as they worked.
