Everybody lies sometimes. This is true. Research has shown that 60 per cent of people lie at least once in a 10-minute conversation with a stranger. But many lies are benign, constructed to preserve someone’s feelings, save face or avoid damaging a relationship. These lies are usually harmless, expected and appreciated.
Dishonesty in the workplace, however, can be dangerous. From the lies told in employment interviews to tales spun in the boardroom, workplace dishonesty can affect a company’s security, morale and bottom line. HR professionals and investigators should be skilled and trained to detect lies.
Join Timothy Dimoff, security expert and president of SACS Consulting, as he discusses workplace dishonesty and what to do about it.
The webinar will cover:
- Common reasons people lie in the workplace
- Repercussions of workplace dishonesty
