In today’s society, who can you really trust? Do you strongly believe your employees are being completely honest with you, especially when they are on their own for majority of their shift?
You’ve worked so hard to build a brand and you’ve put in so much effort as an employer, so why should you be a victim to employee theft? Just google it. Not only do customers steal, but sometimes an employee may steal from you as well for various reasons. Perhaps you sent your employee to a customer’s house to do an estimate for new ceiling or floor tiles. Your employee takes pictures of the tile work that needs to be done and tells you that the customer changed her mind and doesn’t want the work done anymore because it’s too expensive. What if your employee decided to complete the work for a cheaper price without telling you, and pocketed the money? There’s millions of stories of various employees (particularly movers and freelance contractors) who take advantage of their employers trust by stealing and doing things for a cheaper price. They know this is morally wrong. Don’t be a victim to employee theft – it’ll discredit your company in more ways that you think.
But stealing isn’t the only thing you should worry about. What if your employee was supposed to be at one of your valued customer’s houses at 12pm and its 1pm, and they still aren’t there? Now you have your customer constantly calling because your employee was supposed to be at their house, ready to start the job. . Not only are you now losing money, but this will also discredit your company. Words spread like wildfire, and negative reviews sometimes outshine the positive ones when someone is researching your company to do work for them.
People tend to turn to trusted sites such as Google and Angie’s list to determine which company they want to use for their needs. Would you want your company to get low rating just because one of your employees is stealing or not doing the job they are being paid to do? Studies from the Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse found the 2014 median loss caused by occupational fraud was $145,000 – and that’s just employee theft. That doesn’t include theft from customers. How can we protect our money and ensure employees are doing what they should?
Highster Mobile is an excellent cell phone monitoring app that will allow you monitor your employees from afar to ensure work is being done in a timely manner and that business theft isn’t taking place. Say your employee hasn’t shown up yet for a 12pm appointment at Mrs. Parkers place. No problem. You can pinpoint your employee’s exact location with our GPS tracking feature. If Mrs. Parker suddenly rejects your company estimate (when your employee finally decides to show up, and reduces the price from $1,000 to $650 for a new full tile installation, and decides to keep the money for himself) now you can monitor any photos or activities that are done on the target phone. You will even be able to access our Stealth camera which allows you to take a photo of your employee’s surroundings, so you’ll be able to see what he’s doing at that exact moment. Keep your company in good terms and monitor your employees today.
