We know, as a part of this society we all want to maintain a fulfilling professional life along with personal life and we cannot ignore the one for the other. They are like two sides of the same coin and they both hold significant value in one’s life. 

On that note, here we are going to discuss some of the common services provided by us for corporate groups. Some of the corporate groups may have used services by a private investigation agency at one point or other and some may have never used them at all. Whether you belong to the first category or the latter one, it doesn’t matter because this article focuses on the future opportunities not on the previous actions. Let’s have a look at some of the services provided by private investigators for corporate groups so that we can understand how corporate investigative services can benefit corporate groups in the long run.


This is one commonly used service by corporate groups. As the name suggests, it involves conducting a proper investigation on the selected candidates before hiring them as employees in an organization. It is a kind of background screening where we focus on some of the key areas like identity verification, education, previous experience and family background etc. There are people around us who may not always consider ethical and morally acceptable ways to get ahead in the society. There are people who may even provide misleading information about themselves in their CV’s in order to get employed. Pre-employment investigation is like a preventive measure against the people who participate in such activities. Consider it like a filtering process before hiring suitable candidates for a job.


This is also one of the services provided by us for corporate groups, though some may not use it as commonly as pre-employment investigation. Many believe that using pre-employment investigation is enough to ensure security of an organisation but is it though?

Are you wondering what post-employment investigation is all about?

As per the name, post-employment investigation simply means keeping an eye on the activities of the staff members after their employment in the organization. It is necessary to check the activities of the employees even after hiring them because growth of business organisation depends on continuous monitoring and management. It is not just a one-time thing.

A business organization’s performance depends upon the efficiency and effectiveness of the employees hired which makes conducting post-employment investigation in an organisation as an important step. Through this service, one can monitor their employees and the activities performed by them, so that if any deviations are found in their actions then effective measures can be taken to correct it. Under this process, private investigators aim to ensure complete protection of company’s data base and other confidential details.


This is one of the popular services under corporate investigation. As we have already discussed above, every successful organization requires continuous monitoring and regulation to keep everything in order and on that note, we can say that mystery shopping is a very useful service for that purpose. Under mystery shopping service, mystery shoppers are sent to the establishment (who opts for this service) to observe the place and to note key factors about its working like price charged for the goods, staff interaction, quality of the goods sold by them etc. All the observations are recorded from a customer’s point of view and then it is reported back to the owners of the establishment so that they can know about the actual position of their business.


Under this investigation, private investigators find out about all the movable and immovable assets owned by a company so that corporate groups can know about the people they are dealing with. It is risky to associate with other corporate entities without properly verifying their actual status and that is why, asset verification is immensely useful for that purpose.


Apart from the above mentioned ones, there are many other services under corporate investigation provided by private investigators. Some of the other service include due diligence, employee theft, copyright infringement investigation, bug-sweeping, surveillance and insurance fraud investigation etc.

This was all about the important services which are provided by private investigators for corporate groups.

So, what are you waiting for? If you are also looking for a professional investigator to deal with the above mentioned corporate issues then don’t wait. Reach out to us.

Why we should start giving more importance to post employment investigation?

Today, private investigation services have gained much importance and value in the eyes of society. People do realize that in order to deal with certain challenges in personal as well professional life, private investigative services can serve as a significant aid. Due to this change in our society and its mindset, people use different kinds of services provided by private investigation agencies. If we look into investigative services we can see that, they can be divided into two categories – private investigation services and the second one is corporate investigation services. As the name suggests, we use the former one for dealing with issues concerning our private/personal life while the latter one is used for dealing with issues arising in our professional life.

In all these years, we have noticed that people give great priority to pre-employment investigation; they want the best people in all aspects to be a part of their organization, but on the other hand, post employment investigation is not given much importance. Why is that?

A large number of people believe that pre-employment investigation solves a large part of their concern, which is to hire the best possible candidate in their organization and due to that reason, they think that hiring private investigators to conduct post employment investigation to be just a waste of time and money. But, is it though?

People may appear to be pristine and infallible to you while hiring them, but are you sure that none of your employees will change under any circumstance? If you really believe that, are you willing to take any chances with your professional life on the basis of this opinion formed by you?

In this corporate world, it is extremely difficult to differentiate between people whom you can actually trust from those who are just pretending to be trustworthy from outside but have completely different set of motives from inside. What if, you are unknowingly becoming a victim of such people?

Don’t worry. Employers can successfully deal with this situation by using effective methods. It is great that you are using pre-employment investigation, to derive the best out of the rest. But in order to maintain the successful operation of your business enterprise, you should certainly start giving more importance to post employment investigation.

New era of private investigation services


Digital age is the age of internet and technology. It is also an age of immense power, which we get through quick access to information.  When you think about private investigators, what do you imagine them to be like?

Someone holding magnifying glasses, wearing stylish black glasses, hat and a long trench coat, who needs to physically visit the field of investigation every time, in order to collect data… Well, if this is how you are imagining private investigators then your imagination probably needs some rectification.  Private investigators of the present day don’t necessarily follow any particular attire on regular basis, as it will mean ‘standing out’ and not ‘fitting in’ and most importantly, they don’t have to physically visit each and every location all the time, for successfully conducting their investigation.

Modern inventions and improvement in technology, has definitely been a blessing for all of us and private investigators very well know, how to use this blessing to their full advantage without crossing the fine line of moral principles & ethics at the same time.

Social media, which is one of the gifts of this digital era, is a highly useful tool for private investigators. One can get so much information about a person, by tracing their social media foot prints.

Suppose an investigator, is asked to trace a missing person. Normally, it would have taken him about a week or two and a lot of visitations to the field.  But with the rise of digital age, things have turned out to be quite different from earlier and in a good way. He could conduct social media check on the missing person in every social media platform and thus by carefully analyzing the updates posted by the subject of the investigation, he can find him much earlier than a week. Did you see, how digitalization is serving as an aid and not as a hindrance to the profession of private investigation!

In the above example, you got to know that how the digital age is benefiting the working method of private investigators, but do you know it is also helping the private investigators with connectivity?

Yes, you heard it right; private investigators from one state can provide their investigative services to other states as well, without being physically present in other locations. As you already know telephonic communications are an option, but to share information in a much better way, the investigator and the interested clients for the investigative services can connect with each other through internet. Emails & video calls are some of the ways; they can use to communicate with each other in a better way.

In our life, we may find that there are plenty of people around us, with suspicious backgrounds and therefore, we should be extra careful before associating with an unknown person, otherwise we can face harmful repercussions. Private investigators can be very useful in this regard. As we already know digitalization involves conversion of information into digital format, private investigators can access this information and after some verification of their own, they can help us to know who is authentic and who isn’t.

Let me explain this better, through an example. Suppose, you are planning to marry Mr.X/ Miss.Y and you decide to get a pre-matrimonial check from an investigator. So, how will the investigator do that?

Firstly, the investigator will try to verify the authenticity of the information provided by Mr. X/Miss. Y through various sources. He will do social media verification to know more about Mr. X/Miss Y’s personality and along with that he will also use the online public data bases, to know whether Mr. X/Miss Y has any criminal background. Surely, the investigator would have to do some investigation of his own, other than the online verification in order to fulfill this case but still it is clearly evident from this example that how digitalization is helping the investigators to do lengthy and complicated procedures in a much simpler and faster way.

It is true that all the procedures in the profession of a private investigator, cannot be possibly done by only accessing the digital information as it involves much more than that, but still it cannot be ignored that the digital age and the advancements of technology are acting as wings for the private investigators to fly high in the sky.
