Since 2012, almost 500 employees have been fired from North Carolina prisons. Instead of preventing crime, staff members were involved in helping criminals. The employees sold drugs to prisoners, tortured inmates, had sexual affairs, and smuggled weapons and cell phones.
With the majority of North Carolina’s 55 state prisons located in rural areas, prison leaders are having a hard time finding ethical employees.
According to the Charlotte Observer, North Carolina hired a prison officer who was fired in Vermont after he “pressed a gun to a man’s head so hard that his ear bled” (Alexander).
Hiring and maintaining ethical employees is the state’s top priority for its prisons, but obviously is a challenge with low pay and rural locations.
Everyone is Vulnerable to Corruption
Prisons are not the only ones susceptible to unethical employees. Regardless of industry or location, every organization faces the chance of bribery, fraud, theft, or crime.
How can leaders make sure they hire the best employees? An even harder question to answer is how can leaders detect current employees who begin to fall into deception?
