Do you feel like something shady is taking place at your workplace? Does the environment feel tense, odd and just not right? The truth is, as human beings we are highly instinctual and when we feel these things whether from being wronged through direct experiences, or even indirect experiences based on information we gather, it’s important to take action.
Reasons to conduct a background check
Even if you’re in a situation where you’re forming a business relationship with a company or want to invest in shares, you should conduct a background check to review the company’s legal history, property and assets, licenses and other types of information to make sure they align with your company’s goals or your personal interests. Go with your gut when it comes to these things –and back your instincts with concrete evidence to detect any red flags before it’s too late.
Things you will uncover in a background check are and are not limited to:
- Consumer complaints
- Employee complaints
- Reviews from the Better Business Bureau
- Their reliability and business practices
- Their true financial status and secured loans
- Quarterly reports, annual reports, shareholders’ letters, investment-related documentation
- Past or pending litigation
- Public’s view of the company (in online media, newspapers, journals etc.)
Hiring a PI
A PI can help an individual wanting to conduct a background check, synthesize an effective, full and well-rounded search of the company in question. With the right resources and access, they can get the job done quickly, formulate a report of their findings and present it to you to review. The best part of working with a PI is the security of knowing that the work they are doing is undercover and confidential. You will be able to focus on your goals at hand and move forward with your best foot forward.
