Businesses are being warned of an increasing need for CCTV and employee surveillance to combat theft in the workplace.
An increasing number of employees appear to be turning to crime, some claiming financial pressure and store targets drove them to steal.
In many cases, CCTV has helped capture workplace criminals and provided the evidence to prosecute employees who steal from their work premises.
A phone shop employee was recently captured on CCTV as he stole 252 iPhone 5 smartphones the morning of their release. The phones retail for £529 to £699 each.
To ensure profits are protected and business can remain afloat in the current economic climate, Private investigators Colchester have emphasised the importance of monitoring employees. Theft costs businesses millions of pounds each year, and can drive some smaller business to the brink of collapse.
A spokesperson from Private investigators Colchester said:
“As much as businesses would like to trust their employees, there are a worrying number of cases where some will resort to stealing from their employer. Installing CCTV or calling upon private investigator services to monitor employees is an important addition to business to ensure their employees are trustworthy and monitor what is happening to stock.”
