If you own a retail or food service company in Orange County, you probably already know the truth of the old adage “Good help is hard to find.” In fast-paced industries like restaurants and retail, hiring happens often and can take up a considerable amount of time, leading some business owners and managers to make hasty hiring decisions, often without the full picture.
We hear it all the time: “I don’t have time to background check employees.” But according to the National Restaurant Association, 75% of inventory loss in restaurants is a result of employee theft. The U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that 85% of all theft and fraud in U.S. companies is attributable to employees. You may feel like you don’t have time to do background checks, but the real question is: Can you afford not to?
Fortunately at Systematic Inquiry Group, our Orange County private investigations team can help you increase security, make better hiring decisions, and reduce inventory loss. Our Food Cost Program is designed especially for restaurants to help reduce food waste, increase security, and resolve internal problems that are harming your business. Our Monthly Security Assurance program helps business owners prevent employee theft, solve internal security issues, and maintain profits.
And of course we also provide the all-important background check! The first step to decreasing employee theft and making your company more profitable is finding and hiring that illusive “good help.” And you can’t do that unless you know who the bad help is!
Our background check services can help you:
- Find out if an applicant lied on their resume about job experience, education, or other factors.
- Uncover issues like past criminal history, arrests, warrants, credit problems, or other issues you may not have known about.
- Determine if an applicant has a history of litigation or other risk factors.
