My Texas PI has years of experience providing background investigations and assessments of the reputation of potential partners or employees.
Imagine this: At 8 a.m. on Monday, a complete stranger walks right in your front door, looks around at your assets, sits down at your computer and instantly has access to your personal documents, as well as your financial ones. And this person is brazen enough to do this right in front of you while you drink your morning coffee. Should you call the police?
The answer is no, because this person is actually your brand new employee. You invited this person in by hiring him or her. Doesn’t it make sense to know as much as possible about this person’s background and history before opening yourself and your company up? Checking self-reported character or job references is important, but can be slanted in favor of the candidate. Pre-screening potential candidates can also facilitate your decision making.
My Texas PI pre-employment background checks include criminal and civil records, driver history records, educational degree records, sex offender registry and credit reports. It’s important to screen applicants prior to a job offer since screening after the hiring process has been completed can be controversial and possibly lead to litigation. Don’t wait until it’s too late.
According to the United States Chamber of Commerce, 75 percent of employees steal from their workplace and most do it repeatedly.
Identifying employee theft can be difficult. Even companies with their accounting in tip-top shape can suffer financially from employee theft. Smaller companies can literally be ruined. Don’t ignore your suspicions if you think someone internally is stealing from you.
My Texas PI has dedicated specialists in computer and accounting forensics, as well as services in mystery shopper and mystery client, surveillance, fraud and embezzlement and more.
Maybe you are super spontaneous and that has worked out well for you. Most successful companies and business owners, however, understand that performing due diligence is not only expected, but required, in the corporate world. You want your ducks in a row, and all possible scenarios answered prior to committing to a new business relationship, or before entering into litigation.
My Texas PI has years of experience providing background investigations and assessments of the reputation of potential partners or individuals in a business endeavor. Due diligence can also consist of the assessment of a company's assets, previous litigation involvement and other relevant issues. Minimize your risk and avoid potential damage by knowing the background and integrity of all parties involved in potential business investments and transactions.
