Let’s be honest, employees can be a tricky untrustworthy bunch. In many jobs, people are out for themselves, looking for money, and do not have the best interests of the business at heart. If the opportunity to take advantage of the business presents itself, they may not even see it as wrong. To them, it may just be a way to pass the time, to make the day go quicker. Does this make it fair to their employer? Quite simply, no; of course it doesn’t. But if an employee can lie about their expenses, or use the company car when they are not supposed to, or even create stories about traffic jams or wrong turnings just so they can go out and run an errand on their lunch break, they will. And all these things cost you time, all these things cost you money.
Investigating employees has long been an integral issue for business owners, managers, and directors. Suspicions can be generated by the slightest issue. An increase in absences or unusual behaviour in the office can leave an employer with all manner of questions to consider. In the past, there has always been a difficulty when it comes to actually proving these suspicions. You may suspect that your staff is stealing from you, or taking advantage and wasting your time, but how could you prove it? Traditional investigative methods have always been effective, but far from foolproof.
An employer deserves to know the absolute truth about their workforce. It is your time and money that goes into paying them. It is you that they are taking advantage of. Why should you stand for any behaviour that jeopardises the future of your company? Employee misconduct can damage your reputation, your profits, your success, and the overall workability of your business. If you are being in any way deceived, you do deserve to know. There is absolutely no questionable moral ground in this. If your suspect that your employees are not working to the advantage of your company, you need to know the truth.
Luckily, recent advances in GPS tracking technology have led to an increasing success rate in employee investigations. Using the right team, you can now know with 100% accuracy where your employees are and how your company assets are being used. By fitting GPS trackers to all of your company cars, you can determine the truth of your suspicions. A team of investigators will covertly fit the tracker, and then will be able to monitor the exact location of the car 24/7. This will allow you to see if the employee is exaggerating their expenses, using the company car in ways that are not permitted, see where employees go when they are late or absent, and to investigate a whole manner of other issues.
The results of these investigations are as close to foolproof as it is possible to get. You can get an invaluable insight into the actions of your employees and allow you to maintain a successful and effective business. GPS trackers really have been a massive step forward for investigators, allowing them to bring better results to their clients than ever.
Do not be a victim of employee misconduct unnecessarily. Employ an experienced and knowledgeable team of investigators and they can use GPS tracking technology to maintain the success of your business. Employee misconduct can become a thing of the past.
