Employees can help a business to be profitable or can hurt it through waste, inattention to customers, or stealing. Businesses must set the example for honesty to their employees and develop clear policies regarding security and theft.
Measures include: (1) Develop and advise all employees of inventory control procedures for all merchandise entering and exitting the premises. (2) Screen employees carefully before hiring them. Check their backgrounds to be sure they have not been fired for behaviour that is dangerous or unacceptable. - Train employees in proper cash handling and security measures. Set policy regarding cash on hand and stick to it. - Research shows that employees steal from business that are impersonal and lack clear policies. The business must show its employees it cares about them and their property. - Provide a clean orderly work environment with secure places for their personal property. A satisfied employee can be the first line of defence against crime in a business.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
