Corporate Investigation, Workplace Theft and Factual Investigation Services available Nationwide
Corporate Investigation is a crucial aspect of investment, whether it’s a matter of investing time, trust or resources into a person, a business, a brand-new product or the services that back it. As a service, it’s also a powerful tool to avoid fraud, workplace theft and other potentially harmful people behaviors or activities from having an effect on your or your business.
As such, it’s easy to recognise the significance in obtaining error-free, up-to-date and practical information regarding those investments, people or assets; information that can then be applied to better understand the circumstances surrounding them and their prospective values or their associated risks. Thankfully, Precise Investigation’s professional investigators are available to do just that.
We take great pride in providing some of Australia’s most effective, thorough and accurate corporate investigation services to businesses around the country, having already assisted more than five hundred Australian companies to successfully identify potential hazards in pending offers and threats to their ongoing success.
Furthermore, through our highly dependable Corporate Investigation services, we have helped clients to recognise deserving business opportunities, and steer clear of those that may have negative impacts on growth and development, including poor recruitment choices.
At a time when fraud, in both physical and cybercrime forms, has reached its highest levels in Australia since records began, it’s imperative that businesses equipped themselves to effectively identify threats and implement strategies that can help them to reduce the associated risks.
Fraud can take on a multitude of forms, allowing people to feel safe in familiar environments when, in fact, those environments could simply be simulations – a counterfeit website resembling a trusted brand is a great example.
Unfortunately, millions of dollars are stolen every year due to the fact that so many people aren’t aware of the dangers; nor do they feel inclined to invest time or money into gathering additional information before taking the plunge. Needless to say, this increases the chances of successful workplace theft; fake asset procurement and corporate espionage, amongst a multitude of other negative side effects.
Precise Investigation’s skilled professionals are in place to give our clients the additional protection they need to face today’s turbulent marketplace through our accurate, detailed and highly-effective corporate investigation services.
What is a Corporate Investigation Service?
Technically speaking, Corporate Investigation services aren’t independent in their own right – instead, we use a combination of customised investigation services that, when working in parallel, allow our skilled professionals to gather a plethora of information that we then compile into concise reports for you to review. This includes Workplace Complaints; Bullying and HR Investigation services.
Background checks are a critical risk mitigation strategy in protecting businesses in today’s competitive marketplace. For example, would be a component of a Corporate Investigation service, as it gives employers a means to dig further into a person’s past, thereby assisting to determine the legitimacy of their education, previous work experiences and more. However, coupling background checks with a tailor-made surveillance operation allows for a two-pronged approach to confirming whether a person is as honest as they claim.
A case we undertook earlier in 2015 saw a medium-sized, online publication hire an individual who then turned out to be a corporate spy, stealing design concepts, article ideas and trade secrets on behalf of a competitor. Had that company employed Precise Investigation’s Corporate Investigation services before taking him on, they would most likely have avoided the hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages they sustained after their competitors took advantage of them. We have shown, time and time again, how effective and vital Corporate Investigation services can be – in that particular case, we would have been able to show that the suspect was involved with another firm, despite what his application stated.Unfortunately, Australia suffers some of the highest rates of fraud of any country in the world and, with that, the same risks come into play when companies seek to employ new staff. Australia’s geographical location has given rise to a sudden influx of unqualified people making their way into the country in hope of a better life, bringing with them vast quantities of fake or forged documents. This, in turn, allows them to enter into professions that ultimately pay better than anything they’d have done at home, without necessarily having the qualifications to do so.
The risks? Well, it’s easy to see how, for example; someone employed as a chef in a restaurant, boasting ten plus years’ experience prior to their new role, with no genuine qualifications or experience may cause problems for the restaurant. Their understanding of proper cooking times, food hygiene and equipment safety standards will be well and truly under Australia’s minimum requirements, resulting in legal implications for the restaurant in the event that any customers become sick.Precise Investigation boasts an impressive thirty years at the forefront of the Australian Private Investigation industry, and in so doing, we have built an enviable reputation as one of the country’s most successful investigations providers.
