The Normalization of Deviance: How Workplaces Can Avoid Deceit


Course Description
If it’s not broken, why fix it? Organizations continue to push the envelope when it comes to adhering to policies and procedures. These deviations have allowed for a new normal to be accepted in nonprofits big and small.

Have our actions over time actually increased the risk of fraud? This session takes a look at workplace fraud from a different perspective. Doug Cash will lead a theory-based presentation with an overview of the small behaviors we accept, ignore and allow in the workplace that can lead to larger issues, including various forms of fraud. Attendees will be able to reflect on their own organizations and explore any gray areas that are unintentionally creating an environment that increases the risk of deviant behavior.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define fraud and identify what to watch out for
  • Identify the main reasons people commit fraud
  • Discuss the normalization of deviance
