The benefits of partnering with a firm with more than 100 years of experience.

Finding the executive best suited for an opening at your firm often takes exhaustive effort. One of the things corporate executives and HR managers dread most is uncovering disqualifying information after a candidate has been hired. This can quickly damage your company’s reputation and credibility.

Executive Level Fraud is more common than you think and Executive Level Investigations are more important than ever before.

According to a 2014 Economic Crime Survey:

  • 45% of companies suffered fraud
  • 58% of fraud was committed by middle or senior management
  • 26% of fraud was committed by CEOs or managing directors
  • 20% of fraud was committed by senior management
  • Employees with 6+ years of experience committed 48% of internal financial crime

The damage was significant with 27% of companies affected by bribery and corruption losing between $50,000 and $1 million. (Source: PriceWaterHouseCoopers 2014 Economic Crime Survey)
