UK Private Detective

UK private detective can help your business avoid a costly #MeToo movement mistake

Harassment and discrimination in the workplace

The #MeToo movement has empowered more people to come forward and challenge sexual harassment and discrimination. Huge societal change is underway, and victims are increasingly empowered to pursue complaints against individuals and organisations.

Facing up to their responsibilities, companies are re-examining employee complaints and workplace policies. A costly and embarrassing harassment allegation can destroy an executive and potentially the firm they work for.

How a private investigator can help your business

Hiring our UK private detectives to conduct a background check on present and future employees makes ethical and financial sense for business. We’re already seeing a big increase in this type of commission at our London private investigator offices.

Allegations of predatory behaviour have bankrupted companies and forced scores of people out of their positions. Some practical prevention steps can ward off the threat of a potential freefall in share price and the risk of huge legal and PR costs.

Comprehensive due diligence is more important than ever

Increasingly, companies are turning to private investigators to probe historic complaints and to carry out due diligence on prospective employees and corporate acquisitions.

We can profile the background of potential executives and board members to identify potential issues before they are raised. But also, a private investigator can help clear the names of individuals accused of sexual misconduct and restore their credibility before any damaging details leak.

The numbers of people who have had their careers destroyed by ill-advised social media activity continues to increase. Often the postings that bring them down were made many years ago or in private discussions but having an investigator vet the internet history of a key appointment really can avoid embarrassment further down the line.

How we work

Typically, an investigator will begin by searching social media activity, internet databases and publicly available information before delving deeper. Developing sources, tapping into law enforcement intelligence, employment history and private lives is the next step, as is interviewing neighbours, friends, former colleagues, ex-partners and spouses to further identify risk factors.

Increasingly, firms are walking away from deals and from hiring individuals because of pre-screening undertaken by investigators. Had the organisation in question signed up, the consequences in some cases could have been devastating.

Could a private investigator boost your business?

Hiring a private investigator can boost your business. In many cases, people use a private investigator for assistance in their personal lives. Cheating spouse investigators, for example, carry out infidelity investigations in order to help ascertain whether a partner is being faithful or not.

Working with a private investigator

However, a private detective can assist in numerous areas. If you own or operate a business, for example, you may require the services of a private investigation agency. As any business owner will know, reducing waste and cutting costs is crucial to success.

Detecting fraud with a private investigator

If you’ve streamlined your business processes and examined the books but you’re still losing money, you may need to consider other causes of lost revenue. Unfortunately, you may be the victim of employee or business partner fraud.

When someone in-house steals from you or your business, it can have catastrophic effects. In addition to harming the business financially, it can ruin personal relationships, lower morale and it may even result in bankruptcy.

Take action quickly with a private investigator or detective’s agency

If money is being taken or embezzled, it’s important to act quickly. If this type of conduct goes on for too long, it may be impossible for the business to recover. By engaging a private investigator, however, you can confirm whether business partners or employees are acting unscrupulously.

Surveillance services, for example, can be extremely useful when it comes to tracing people’s actions. If you rely on an employee to transport the day’s takings to the bank, for example, a private investigator can surveil them to ensure that the money isn’t tampered with prior to being deposited. In busy areas, such as the City of London, the hustle and bustle can make it easy for employees to remove funds prior to reaching the bank. Effective surveillance, however, will ensure that you can put a stop to such conduct.

Similarly, if strange numbers are appearing on your business phone bill and you suspect that unauthorised financial transfers are being made, a telephone number trace can be conducted. This will identify who is being contacted, which could give you some indication of whether unwanted activity is taking place.

Using a private investigator agency

No-one wants to think badly of their colleagues and you may feel somewhat disloyal if you suspect them of taking business funds. However, a private investigator can help you to get to the truth before any further harm is caused. By using a private detective to protect your interests, you can ensure that the business remains profitable and continues to benefit trustworthy employees, investors and shareholders.

Surveillance Private Investigators

When should you use surveillance services?

State-of-the-art technology means that surveillance services are now more effective than ever. If you need to track someone, identify someone who is harassing you or a trace a phone number, engaging in surveillance services could be the ideal way to do it.

However, people don’t always realise just how useful surveillance can be. In fact, using a private investigator or a detective’s agency can be beneficial in many situations.

 

Catch a cheating partner

Infidelity investigations are often carried out when one spouse suspects another may be cheating. However, surveillance services can also be used during divorce proceedings or by people who are due to be married.

If you’re hesitant about using surveillance services in your personal life, you needn’t be. A marriage or a long-term relationship can be a costly investment, both financially and emotionally. It’s important to protect yourself from harm and you’ll want to know the truth about your spouse or partner, whether you’re due to be married, currently wed or going through the process of divorce.

 

Identify a thieving employee

Unfortunately, not all businesses can rely on their staff to act appropriately. In some cases, a rogue employee may steal from the business. Whilst this may simply be a case of taking cash from the till, more sophisticated methods of stealing may be in place as well.

Employees could embezzle money or transfer assets into fictitious accounts, for example, and this could cost the business dearly. However, a private investigation agency will be able to track employees and perhaps even identify odd spending patterns.

This surveillance may enable you to identify the culprit and, therefore, take action against them while protecting your business.

Track nuisance calls

If you’re being plagued by nuisance calls or threatening communications, it’s important to find out who is responsible. Tracing people or phone numbers, in addition to tracking potential suspects, can help to identify who is harassing you.

Why suffer when you don’t have to? Accessing effective surveillance services could help to keep you and your family safe and it could also give you peace of mind. To find out more about working with a private investigator, why not get in touch with us today?

The range of services provided by a private investigator

Many people are unsure about the role of private detectives. What kind of work do they do on a day to day basis? How can they help you, or your business? Below we explain a little about the services that are provided by a private investigator, and how they can help you.

Infidelity investigations

If you have suspicions that your husband or wife is cheating, then a private investigator can help you. Once they have all personal details and information, such as where they work and who their friends are, then they can get to work on the surveillance of your spouse to find out if your suspicions are true. They use a combination of video and audio monitoring to gather evidence.

Tracing people

If you are at a complete loss in knowing how to trace a loved one in your life, then a private investigator can help you find that person. They are able to trace individuals via email, phone, social media and in person.

Phone number tracing

When you face the daily struggle and violation of nuisance and threatening phone calls, and suspect that you may be being stalked, if the police are unable to help you, then who can you turn to? A private investigator is able to trace such phone calls, allowing you to find out who the culprit is, and to then alert the police.

Tracking vehicles

Private investigator firms are able to use sophisticated GPS tracking systems to keep a constant surveillance on any vehicle. You may need this type of service if you have concerns that an individual is not going where they say they are going, or is using the vehicle inappropriately. Perhaps your staff member is not delivering goods on time, or is perhaps using the vehicle for personal use?
