How about get better locks for your house and then invite the thieves one by one to come and stay in your home?
The fox is in the coop. So let’s get better locks to keep out the predators while we invite more foxes in.
Sorry if this sounds like nonsense. However, it does seem to be the behavior of most Western Companies here in China.
Many companies are busy developing systems to stop the thieves from stealing. Then they hire foxes to manage the system. Some people think having finance report abroad will solve the problem. It is all all rather naive.
Yes, It is Good to Have Better Guards and Locks, But
Ok, no company decides to search for and hire a fox and give him or her an offer. However, what have they done to keep from hiring the fox? Have they ever refused someone on account of what they found in the background check?
We find 72% of people are lying on the background check, and we withdraw their names. So how many foxes are in management in Western companies and manage some or all of the system to prevent misappropriation?
