Time to be Cautious

Recently my female colleague left her handbag on her desk when going to the washroom and returned to find the cleaner fumbling with her handbag. Cooking up some excuses, he quickly left... There was no doubt in her mind that the cleaner was trying to steal from her bag but describing him as looking "scary", she does not dare to report him.

Time for me to pay more attention to the cleaners when they come over to clean my cubicle. There was never really such an issue when the cleaning services were done in house... The outsourcing of cleaning services has already seen the standards of cleaning dipped and now these sort of security issues. The company may perhaps be paying slightly lower cleaning costs but with the other problems popping up, are we truly getting a good square deal?
