Protect your business against employee fraud
The road to business ownership has at times been hard-fought for women in the United States. Regardless, the numbers show that today, female-led firms are thriving.
But whether owned by a woman or a man, every business needs to protect its investments and guard against fraud and embezzlement. Employment screening and background checks are essential to this.
More than 11 million U.S. business are owned by women and employ more than 9 million people.
Of that, 5.4 million firms are majority-owned by women of color and employ more than 2 million people.
One in five women-owned businesses have revenues of $1 million or more.
Which leads to the most astonishing number yet: Combined, women-owned businesses generate $1.7 trillion in sales, according to the National Association of Women Business Owners, from a study by American Express. (link: https://www.nawbo.org/resources/women-business-owner-statistics)
It’s a given that some of the money made by women in retail, service, manufacturing or other industries is lost to employee fraud. Considering that the path to owning their own businesses has been challenging, historically, it’s particularly a shame for that hard-earned money to be lost.
