When most people think about what security companies do for American businesses, they probably imagine security guards standing guard around valuable inventory, making sure that it isn’t stolen by any would-be criminals posing as customers. However, as any business owner will tell you, these days, unfortunately, an even greater risk can be posed by a bad employee. And because you’re the boss, and people are always sucking up to the boss, sometimes it can be quite difficult to tell which employees are the bad apples. This is why it can be useful to have someone else—someone undercover—getting a clear-eyed view on what your employees are like when you’re not around.
Most workers are good
Undoubtedly, the vast majority of your employees are good hard workers, who care about the health and success of your company almost as much as you do, and who genuinely enjoy providing value to your business in exchange for fair compensation. However, it only takes one employee with bad intent, one untrustworthy ne’er-do-well, to cost you big.
Employees have extra access
The reason employees can cause more problems than customers is because your employees enjoy access that would be unprecedented to any potential customer. This additional access means that they’re around the money, and they’re around the inventory, even when it isn’t yet out for customers. This means they an untrustworthy employee can cause problems at every single stage in your business’ delivery model. So whereas a bad customer might steal a few hundred dollars of inventory, a bad employee can affect you far more than that!
