Private investigators aren’t just for the movies, or extreme cases you hear about in the news; they’re an effective way to check up on happenings within your business if you suspect one or more of your employees might be doing something under the radar.
Hiring a UK private investigator to assess or watch an employee, or even a business partner, will help your worries. Even if nothing sinister is revealed, it will help put your mind at ease nonetheless.
Missing stock uncovered by Private Investigator
Depending on the type of business you run, whether that’s in hospitality, working with food or drink, or a clothing store, missing stock can be a huge financial worry to any business owner. Sometimes, the explanation is perfectly innocent, but other times it can mean someone within the workplace being untrustworthy, and taking advantage of the situation. A private detective will help in investigating one or more particular employees to help you get to the bottom of missing stock. This could involve monitoring CCTV footage, following individuals or installing secret cameras.
Private Investigator Discovers Financial discrepancies
Similar to missing stock, sometimes books don’t add up either. Financial discrepancies can be extremely worrying, especially when staff have access to tills and safes. Private investigators can help gauge the severity of the issue, by investigating particular staff and watching behind the scenes for any suspicious activity. If staff are involved in stealing or moving money from the company, this is, of course, illegal and necessary steps should be taken following the result of the investigation.
Suspicious events unearthed by Private Investigator
It’s a rarity, but sometimes people take advantage of their workplace, even when it’s not them running the business, and try to operate other activities out of here without the boss knowing. This could include running private events at a restaurant and taking all of the profits, or the same with a retail store, after hours. It could also be a case of illegal activity taking place in the workplace, such as drug dealing or money laundering.
In any of these scenarios, a private detective will assess the situation, delving deep into the actions of staff members and come to a conclusion.
