Attention Business Leaders: Your Employees Could Be Stealing Commissions Without You Even Knowing

This blog post highlights a concerning issue that business leaders need to be aware of: the potential theft of commissions by employees within their organizations, often going unnoticed.

Attention Business Leaders: Your Employees Could Be Stealing Commissions Without You Even Knowing


As a business leader, you know that commissions are crucial in motivating and rewarding your sales team. But did you know that improper data management strategies could put those commissions at risk?  

The Problem: Commission Theft

Unfortunately, commission theft by employees is a real issue many companies face. Whether it’s intentional or not, employees may be inaccurately crediting sales to themselves or their team, resulting in lost commissions for others. This can happen when there is a lack of clear data ownership, a confusing sales structure, or even simple human error.  

The Solution: A Strong Data Strategy

The key to preventing commission theft is a strong data management strategy. This means having clear ownership and governance over your data and a thorough understanding of your sales structure and the metrics used to calculate commissions.
