Knowing everything about whom you hire reduces turnover, provides a safer workplace and protects your company’s assets.

Trace Investigations will work with you to create a customized screening program which will reflect your hiring needs.

The best way to prevent employee theft begins with an effective pre-employment screening program and background investigation. According to the 2016 Report to the Nations published by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, the typical business organization loses 5 percent of its revenue to fraud each year. The median loss caused by occupational fraud reported in the ACFE study was $150,000, with at least a million-dollar loss reported by over one-fifth of the businesses. The perpetrators of these frauds are employees operating at all levels within an organization, not only production workers but management and executive employees.

The Trace Investigations team of experienced legal investigators, research specialists and intelligence analysts has been providing background investigations and pre-and post-employment screening services to small businesses and larger corporations for over two decades.
