With the holiday season now upon us it is not uncommon for office theft to skyrocket and become a headache for facility owners and managers.

If you think large ticket items are the most common things stolen from your office then you need to think again. In reality it’s the small stuff that you need to sweat, which often includes:

  • Pens, pencils and highlighters
  • Scissors
  • Post-It’s
  • Toilet paper (???)
  • USB  memory sticks
  • Tape
  • Printer Ink
  • Paper (and paper products)
  • Binders and binder clips

While no office can be 100% secure from office theft, there are measures you can put in place to prevent office theft from becoming a major headache this holiday season. Below are some tips:

No Piggybacking do not open the door for unwelcome guests in your office and/or facility (a long-lost uncle can qualify).
