SERVICE OVERVIEW: WORKPLACE THEFT

Theft in the workplace is a standard issue that businesses face daily. Often, workplace environments may present the opportunity for employees to steal supplies, company belongings and even cash. Highly trusted employees with access to large amounts of money, safe combinations and other expensive items may abuse their position and help themselves to these things.

Private Investigators in London and the rest of the UK

Our investigative operative teams can provide surveillance and undercover workers to assist you in figuring out who is behind these thefts. Giving you a chance, as the employer, to avoid passing the blame to innocent parties. Instead, with the compiled evidence provided by your case handler, you will be able to find out who is stealing from you and go ahead with your desired disciplinary actions.

Theft in the workplace costs more than the monetary value of the stolen goods/cash. In fact, the cost of replacement goods or funds and the time and costs of internal HR staff to deal with these problems can quickly add up to significant amounts.

In fact, theft in the workplace is not just about physically stealing something. Everything from data breaches to stolen company software can be classed as theft. Just because something is not tangible, it does not mean it is not stealing. Types of things that could be stolen include;

  • Office property – computers, furniture, printers, scanners, phones, mobiles
  • Cash – either from POS systems or safety deposit boxes or safes
  • Data – Sensitive customer data could be sold to third parties
  • Recipes – bakeries, restaurants and other leisure establishments may have copyrighted the use of certain recipes which could be worth much money.
  • Vehicles – company cars or vans could go missing in large fleets

Workplace thefts can happen at any business and any level. Shop workers are handling cash directly from the customers all the way to senior managerial staff that have access to large amounts of money or expensive property.
