Why do People Steal?
One of the most frequent comments we hear once the identity of an embezzler is confirmed is that he or she is “the last person I could imagine stealing”. Their surprise is understandable. We all have preconceptions about how criminals look, dress, speak, and act. Our mental image of the criminal is shaped by what we see on the news, TV dramas and by direct observation in our own communities.

Embezzlers will never fit this stereotype; many of them remind me of Sunday school teachers (which, in fact, some of them are). The explanation for why embezzlers do not fit the preconception is simple – you would never hire someone who looks your image of a criminal. So as an employer, you have already eliminated certain people because they haven’t passed your personal “smell test”, whereas everyone you hire has.
Something to Talk About…
Winter is still hitting many of us full-force, but with March comes the promise of finally being “in the home stretch.” Winter is not a race, but if it were, then March and all of the changes it will bring are certainly a way of feeling that we are close to the finish line.
Warmer temperatures, longer days, and for a few lucky folks, crocuses will soon be in bloom. March offers us a newness that is different from that which we associate with New Year’s Day or our birthdays. With March and spring come a desire to shake off the winter cobwebs and dive into some much-needed spring cleaning. After a long winter confinement many of us can’t wait to open up our windows, shampoo our rugs, empty the ashes from our fireplaces, and finally rake the last of the fall leaves that we were able to ignore while they were covered with snow. And maybe, just maybe, while we are hard at work cleaning up all of winter’s little messes, we will have cause to pause and ask ourselves; “could my business need a good spring cleaning too?”
My team and I hope that most of you can answer that question for yourself, without feeling that there is any major work to be done. For others, you may feel that it’s time to have a chat with us or visit our website to see if there is something we can do to assist you with a more thorough spring cleaning of your office. For nearly 30 years the team at Prosperident has been proud to serve the dental community, and we hope that you will never need our services, but if you ever feel you want to talk to us about what our team can do for you, we are always here for you, and we are always happy to help.
