Chapter – 45

Athena employed a carrot-and-stick approach to manage the situation.

First, she used Carlos as an example to instill fear in the rest of the employees. Carlos’ arrest sent shockwaves through the group, making them realize the seriousness of their actions and the potential consequences of their involvement in the embezzlement.

With their anxiety at its peak, Athena introduced her plan. This plan gave them hope for a chance to rectify their mistakes by returning the embezzled funds. This approach motivated the individuals to actively participate in the process of returning the money they had wrongfully taken.

As Athena adeptly navigated the situation, Gideon silently applauded her in his mind. He watched her handle the chaotic scene, bringing about a resolution.

Ultimately, about 30 million dollars were recovered. Athena’s calm and composed demeanor contrasted with the anxious expressions of those around her. Most of the employees paid back the sums as listed by Carlos, but it soon became apparent that not everyone had confessed their full embezzlement amount.

Athena’s keen observation led her to question the total amount returned. She pointedly asked the group, “Are you sure this accounts for all the embezzled money?” This query raised suspicions among some, while others quickly reassured her that they had returned everything.

Athena’s persistence paid off as a few more individuals came forward, admitting to having initially underreported the extent of their embezzlement. Through this process, an additional seven million dollars were retrieved.

With a total of forty-five million dollars now recovered, Matt, who had also been involved, inquired about the fate of their jobs.

Athena addressed the situation diplomatically. She acknowledged their efforts to rectify their actions, emphasizing that they were all workers who deserved a second chance. Despite their transgressions, she promised to advocate for their job security. However, she cautioned them to be vigilant and avoid any further mistakes.

Appreciation and gratitude followed Athena’s words as the relieved employees left the room. They exchanged comments among themselves, cursing Carlos for his role in their predicament.

Athena tidied up the gathered materials and handed them to Gideon. He observed her intently while casually resting his head on his hand.

“Mr. Hale, I’m entrusting you with these chits for the remaining embezzled money,” Athena said.

Gideon inquired, “Are you planning to appeal to Byron?”

Athena gathered her belongings, including her laptop, paper, and pen.

“Why would I need to do that? Mr. Crawford isn’t interested in such details. He’s concerned with results,” Athena replied.

Gideon nodded in agreement, a knowing smile on his face. “Of course. So, Miss Newton, you employed the carrot-and-stick approach, I see?”

Athena squinted playfully at Gideon. “You’re quite informed, aren’t you?”

Gideon sat up straight, a self-assured grin on his lips. “I graduated from Columbia University, after all.”

As their conversation continued, Athena explained her reasoning for not taking more severe measures against the employees.

“What choice do I have? The project is already delayed by a month due to these individuals. If I were to fire them and bring in new workers, it would lead to even more time and cost losses,” Athena reasoned. In the construction industry, time equated to money, making her decision a pragmatic one.
