Clifton Park, NY (PRWEB) December 10, 2010
The Bloomberg Businessweek released an article recently entitled “Hooky Detectives” featuring a popular new trend among employers: hiring private investigators to check up on their “sick” employees.
According to Bloomberg, this trend has been developing more as the economy is not allowing for current employees to find new careers. Feeling entrapped in their position, the employee tends to be less engaged and more apt to take advantage of their benefits. A spark of reasonable doubt is enough to inspire employers to dig into the lives of their employee while they are supposedly home sick.
An interview with Mario Pecoraro, CEO and Founder of Alliance Worldwide Investigative Group, Inc. revealed that process can be quite intricate. “Successful surveillance requires establishing a pattern of activity that can sometimes require multiple days, or even weeks." In the long-run, however, it can be cost effective for a business to remove an uninterested, unmotivated employee and replace them with someone ready and willing to complete the job at-hand. In addition, Pecoraro says that a thorough pre-employment background investigation could mitigate potential situations.
