PRIVATE INVESTIGATIONS

In today's fast-paced and competitive business environment, accurate and timely information is imperative. We at TSG conduct thorough investigations of pre-employment applicants and, when necessary, personnel within the corporate structure. We specialize in conducting investigations of a sensitive internal nature. 

The problems faced by businesses and corporations are unique and we understand the solutions must be as well. We view business/corporate issues as “problems” as opposed to crimes. It has been our experience that businesses and Corporations do not view their employees as criminals. Criminals are outsiders. It closely resembles the way family members view one another. In fact, many business owners look upon their employees as if they were part of an extended family. For business Investigations, we keep the integrity of the employee/owner relationship at the forefront of our minds when deciding how to proceed.

 

Equally, if the client wishes to pursue prosecution of the guilty parties for their unethical behavior, we are highly qualified and prepared to switch gears to a criminal investigation to make that happen as well.

 

We will work closely with the legal counsel and human resources staff of the business/corporation. Initially, our goal will be to identify and define the problem. Often, the issue is exactly what the client suspected. Other times, the tentacles of deceit and deception reach much deeper and further than previously thought. A thorough business Investigation by a highly trained and qualified Corporate Investigator can ferret out the root cause.

 

Interviews, interrogations, surveillance, information sources, and/or undercover investigators can all be employed to solve the problem. Computer forensics, forensic accounting, covert videography, electronically enhanced polygraphs, and other cutting edge technology can also be utilized by our investigative division.

 

Please call us to discuss your individual situation, business investigation needs, or specific concern with one of our highly skilled investigative specialists.

Pre-employment Investigations / Personnel Security Investigations

 

Pre–Employment screening is critical if you want to hire productive, qualified, honest employees with high morale and reduced tardiness/absenteeism. Choosing the right employees for key positions could literally mean the success or failure of your company. Furthermore, pre-employment screening, often heads off future cases of employee theft or fraud, saving you and your business thousands of dollars. Whether you need a simple verification of the honesty of an application for an Associate position, or in-depth employment investigations of a prospective new CEO, the value of quality information about job candidates cannot be overstated. Through our discreet screening process, we may not be able to help you find the “right” person for your job, but we certainly are able to help you in avoiding the “wrong” one.

 

Employee theft and fraud / Loss Prevention

 

Do you have inventory losses you cannot account for? Do you suspect theft in some areas of your company? Could the actions of just a few be negatively impacting your profitability?

Losses due to employee dishonesty and theft are problematic, expensive, and embarrassing. Certain types of employee dishonesty can threaten your company’s reputation and integrity, which is often the case with the theft of data or personal customer information. Our Loss Prevention Investigation services use surveillance and structure infiltration (including undercover research), as well as “Secret Shopping” to assess, identify, and document points of loss that otherwise would be difficult or impossible to draw out.

“Businesses employing less than 100 persons” were the MOST vulnerable to FRAUD and ABUSE “by employees” (ACFE). “Among the victims of Employee Fraud, Smaller Businesses had a median LOSS of $120,000 per occurrence.” (ACFE)  In cases such as these, a Loss Prevention program could have proved critical to protecting company profits.

Do you suspect that some of your employees on disability claims are not really injured or disabled?

Each year, worker’s compensation claims total close to 3.5 BILLION dollars. False injury claims cost corporations thousands of dollars, and hundreds of valuable man hours in filing, documenting and check payout processing. With expert surveillance, key witness testimony and captured video, a Corporate Investigator at Special Solutions, Ltd.,  can reduce your organization’s losses due to invalid, overstated, or fraudulent worker’s compensation claims.

Employee Productivity Investigations

 

Are your employees less productive than you think they should be? Does it feel like you never seem to get done what you need to get done on time? Is your work force unwilling to comply with your corporate policies? Do you feel you have inadequate or ineffective supervision of your employees, especially at night?

We understand the importance of keeping an eye on employees these days. It is natural for employees to be social and a user friendly work environment can boost morale and keep productivity high, but gross misuse of paid employee time can cost a company a bundle in lost revenue, missed deadlines and additional unnecessary salaries. Are you paying two people to do one person’s job? Our Investigative Services can help you find out.

 

Our services include:

  • Surveillance of field employees

  • Short term Undercover Infiltration Operations

  • Electronic Round the Clock Surveillance

  • Secret Shopping

  • Employee Tracking

 

Is employee misconduct eating away at your profits?

Are your employees where they are supposed to be and doing what they are supposed to be doing? This is a question that can make or break a business. Businesses can be hemorrhaging dollars on frivolous misuses of their vehicles and disregard of the company clock. Is it a harmless errand on the rare occasion or a recurring abuse of company time and gas?

If your employees are using company time to attend to personal obligations, putting unauthorized wear and tear on the company vehicle or elongating their appointments past the allotted time, a GPS tracker may be the solution.

 

Stop wasting money

GPS vehicle tracking can be used in conjunction with a traditional Licensed Private Investigator Surveillance Investigation or Undercover Operation. If the data collected reflects unauthorized use of a company vehicle, a surveillance investigator can gather additional evidence against the employee.

Whether your business involves mobile service vehicles, delivery vans, or shipping, Employee Tracking Investigative Services is an excellent fleet management/monitoring tool.
