Boredom: The Forgotten Factor in Preventing Worldwide Fraud

Authors


Abstract

Are bored workers more likely to commit fraudulent offenses in the workplace worldwide? The author conducts research at the U.K.-based Institute of Hazard, Risk, and Resilience. In this article, he reveals how a lack of stimulation—or want of productive engagement—among an organization's workforce can significantly increase the risk of financial fraud in the workplace. So CEOs, regulators, and auditors all need to pay greater attention to employees' job satisfaction levels. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
