Corporate investigations are useful when companies face a number of challenges internally and externally. They must be vigilant in protecting assets and mitigating risk in all areas of their business.
Internally, employees and agents of your company may act in bad faith misrepresenting their backgrounds, accident claims and work status.
Externally, criminal activity outside your business may be try to steal assets, pirate your products or knock-off your brand name.
A corporate investigation partner is a valuable asset to have before or when you have any issues arise.
Santoni Investigations encompasses the investigative services you need to protect your business and continually monitor any threats against operations, employees and products.
Uncovering Dangers within Your Company
Customized employment background screening and substance abuse screening are important steps in your on-boarding process. Your extended workforce – which can include vendors, distributors, partners and consultants – should also be screened as they will have access to your facilities, trade secrets, employees and business processes.
When accidents happen, being prepared to respond effectively can make all the difference. Whether you have a Workers’ Compensation claim or a slip and fall, a rapid response team that can document and secure the necessary statements and evidence can mitigate your exposure. When your employees begin to take advantage of the insurance system, you need to conduct an anti-fraud investigation that includes surveillance and interviews.
