Prepare and Protect: The Importance of Threat Management and Investigation

Interpersonal conflict is inevitable when people spend a lot of time in close proximity to one another. What starts as good-natured kidding can quickly deteriorate into hurt feelings, name calling, physical intimidation, and even violence. Conflict between employees can be especially dangerous because work-related stress, ego, peer pressure, and fatigue are like kindling feeding the flames of confrontation. If not quickly diffused by proper and effective threat management techniques, a few minutes in the office can have devastating consequences for employees, their families, and your bottom line.

Workplace violence is now recognized as a significant occupational hazard.  Employees who are plagued by alcohol and drug abuse, financial crises, gambling loss, bad investments, credit card debt, job stress, and mental illness are increasingly acting out at work in the form of harassment, intimidation, threats, theft, stalking, assault, arson, sabotage, bombing, suicide and homicide.

Fraud Tip

Be leery of an offer or business deal that appears too good to be true, because they usually are. Have an independent opinion rendered of the offer or business deal by an experienced professional investigator experienced in fraud schemes before you invest or commit to the deal. The few dollars you spend in the beginning will save you thousands at the end.

If you suspect fraud or are troubled by an offer, call us with the information. We can help you identify if it is a fraud. Remember, if something appears too good to be true, it usually is.
