A bit of under ringing here, the odd staff drinks there. Who would have thought that could add up to £44,700 in annualised losses?
In a five hour under over observation, there was certainly great team spirit and commitment, even team members ‘helping’ after they had clocked off. Always suspicious…
Noting transactions, methods of payment, precise times, and comparing to what was recorded, there was a big gap. Staff drinking; orders allocated to ‘management;’ missing transactions just part of the problem.
In total, this one shift alone cost business owners £170. Extrapolated over a year, this equates to £44,700 of losses.
Staff cheerfully calculated how much they had ‘earned’ at the end of the evening, but were less jubilant when confronted with their scam, P45 and a police investigation.
