In order to tackle fraud, we believe that fraud awareness training for employees is a vital part of the process. So much so, that we’ve made it mandatory for all staff. They need to know: what fraud is, what to look for, and how and where to report suspicions. Meritec’s Focus on Fraud Awareness has enabled us to provide a simple and engaging e-learning session to employees across the council in a straightforward and efficient way. Building upon the effectiveness of the training and the positive feedback received from staff, we have recommended the product to partners within the Staffordshire Counter Fraud Partnership, a number of whom have now also invested in the package.
“The sad fact of modern life is that fraud represents almost 50% of all crimes committed in the UK, and the figures are on the increase. Delivering this important awareness message to in excess of 5000 employees is a challenge which is why Harrow have chosen to work with Meritec due to their solid reputation in Local Authorities at providing bespoke e-training packages.”
