If your business hasn't been a victim of employee theft, consider yourself fortunate. As a leader in Chicago theft investigations, we understand firsthand the threat employee theft represents to businesses, law firms and individuals across the United States.
Consider these alarming statistics:
- $50 billion stolen annually by employees from American businesses
- 7 percent loss of annual revenues due to theft and fraud
- 75 percent of employees are reported to have stolen at least once from their employer
- More than 30 percent of all business bankruptcies result from employee theft
Theft takes many forms, from "small" crimes such as stealing office supplies and merchandise, to stealing time (inflating one's break time, not properly reporting sick or vacation leave), and internal sabotage or violence toward a facility or other employees. Left unchecked, these actions can cause irreparable damage to a business or law firm.
That's why our private detective agency — serving the Chicagoland area and surrounding suburbs for more than three decades — has become a leader in conducting investigations on behalf of Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, insurance companies, law firms and private citizens.
When you choose Arkus, you're guaranteed a team of highly qualified Illinois private investigators dedicated to helping you resolve your crisis in a private, professional and effective manner.
