Topic: How to Detect and Prevent Fraud in the Workplace
Information: Workplace fraud costs businesses billions of dollars each year. It is an ongoing, widespread and varied problem, one that comes in all sizes for all kinds of companies. It can significantly impact a company’s productivity and profitability. The reasons for fraud are not always obvious to the business owner, but knowing the signs along with early intervention and the establishment of firm policies and procedures, you can make an impact on working to prevent fraud in your business.
We are pleased to welcome fraud prevention experts from First United Bank & Trust as our guest speakers.
