Catch ME If You Can: Today’s Pink Collar Criminal
Who is a Pink Collar Criminal? Join renowned Pink Collar Crime expert Kelly Paxton for practical tips you can use to identify a Pink Collar Criminal and make sure you don't provide opportunity for them in your business.
In a 10-year period, women embezzlement arrests rose over 40% while male embezzlement arrests only rose 4%. Women now have access to funds and are in positions where embezzlement is generally most prevalent. But that doesn't mean a man can't be a pink collar criminal. It's the position not the gender that makes it pink collar.
Kelly will show you what to look for in your business to make sure your most trusted employee is not a pink collar criminal. This topic is Kelly’s most widely requested due to the recent increase in embezzlement and fraud.
Honestly Dishonest: A Fraud Examiner's Perspective
Good people make bad choices and bad people make good choices. Using behavioral economics (think Dan Ariely and Richard Thaler), neuroscience, anecdotes and real life examples, listen to how important tone at the top is and how it can affect your employees' behaviors. Ethics hours are usually an attorney saying it depends. This is not that. This is real life and makes you question decisions made on a daily basis.
COULD VS SHOULD
Ethics is a topic that every person, employee, manager and leader can relate to. However, everyone has different views on ethics. Things are more than black and white. Ethical decision making is easy when the choices are right versus wrong. What happens when the ethical choice is between right versus right? Does changing from a should mindset to a could mindset help in these situations?
