Shield can deploy professional agents covertly in almost any work situation. Some clients regularly deploy our agents to simply give them an ongoing, accurate picture of their workforces’ level of motivation along with an understanding of any breaches in company practice that may be occurring. This enables them to constantly adapt to maximise profitability. Our services can also be used to enable clients to combat specific situations such as internal theft or low productivity and a host of other issues.
“Recent figures show that the UK economy loses in excess of £1.2bn each year from internal fraud and theft.”
Last year alone, retail theft cost in excess of £426 million! Over 50% of this related to employee theft and it is estimated that 1 in 10 retail employees may be involved. It is an unfortunate reality that the current economic climate has seen an increase in these figures.
Whilst retail is the obvious example of this phenomenon, all business types are affected and all business types can see a real quantifiable financial benefit from employing the services of Shield Operations to combat this loss.
