Licensed private detectives, ASG Investigations, offers you detailed investigations of your employees and what they are doing when you are not watching them. We can enter your place of business and provide you with hidden video evidence of theft that you can use to prosecute the offenders and send a powerful message to your staff.

What Can Shopping Services and Mystery Shopping Can Uncover?

In the modern litigious environment, we do not recommend that you try this type of work on your own or by using a friend or relative. They will not be seen as independent and may even be perceived as an aggressive act against the employee thief.

A small sampling of the areas we can address in our shopping services and mystery shopping includes:

  • The cleanliness and overall appearance of the business (parking area, lobby area, restrooms, tables, etc.)
  • How your staff greets and treats the customers.
  • The quality of your product (food, drink, whatever you sell).
  • What is the staff actually doing on the clock.
  • The quality of the service provided by your staff including timeliness.
  • The quality of your product or service.
  • Compliance by your staff with any laws or regulations that apply to your industry (safety laws, health laws, etc.).
  • Any liabilities noted (lights not functioning, unsafe practices, horseplay, wet floors, etc.).
  • Employee honesty and adherence to company policies.
  • Under ringing and theft including failing to charge certain customers.

Our agency is proud to be associated with the American Society of Industrial Security and we have significant experience working shopping service cases for national employers.
