Confidence in Your Workforce

People are the best strength of any business or organisation. Regrettably, they can also be the biggest weakness of the business. How do you know the new person you are planning to hire really is who they say they are? Is their CV just a little too good to be true?

Our corporate investigation skills can help you verify a potential employee’s claimed qualifications, experience and work history. This can be done before you extend an offer, or when doubts around performance manifest themselves. Verifying the trustworthiness of your team helps build confidence in their loyalty to your brand and management. This, in turn, helps reduce the possibility of fraud and protect your intellectual property such as product designs, customer lists, software, financial data, and research.

Having confidence in the trustworthiness of your staff will prevent difficulties later. There are several high profile cases of individuals claiming to hold qualifications they haven’t achieved. For example, John Andrewes, former Chairman of the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust, faked his qualifications and lied about his work experience but was only found out after over a decade working in this field. Similarly, David Scott was appointed as managing director of a booming engineering company but it was later discovered he had no management experience, had claimed to have authored an acclaimed academic paper (written by a different David Scott) and that he didn’t have a degree when he had claimed to have 3 of them. It was his colleagues who raised concerns about his capability for the role.

Both of these organisations could have saved themselves considerable sums of money, negative press and reputational damage if they had correctly checked the claimed experience and qualifications of their employees.


As fully qualified private investigators, we offer a completely confidential service; we can operate without alerting your team to our involvement and we have robust procedures in place to ensure complete discretion.
