HUMAN RESOURCES SUPPORT
Our Human Resources Support program links huge cost saving pre-employment background checks with other Human Resources issues. What an applicant fails to disclose may result in personal embarrassment and costly mistakes in hiring. Mitchell Partners will help you avoid costly and embarrassing mistakes by vetting the information provided during the application and selection phases of the hiring process.
Employment History Confirmation – We examine an applicant’s history with their previous employers. Areas of concentration include Attendance Verification, Substance Abuse History, Sexual Harassment and Workplace Human Rights Violations History, Performance Quality and Consistency. During this process, often times gaps in employment and causes for previous terminations may become uncovered. As part of our investigation, we will conduct interviews with past and present Supervisors and Co-Workers, as well as human resources personnel.
Financial History Verification – Poor Credit, bankruptcy or consumer proposal may affect an applicant’s suitability to have responsibilities related to the company’s finances. Furthermore, well documented studies indicate that an employee with poor credit, who may be under pursuit by creditors, will not be able to fully and affectively concentrate on the tasks at hand and thus their employment longevity is called into question.
Educational History Verification – Educational institutions are contacted for verification of Degrees and Diplomas, grades, and course content.
Criminal Record Check – a candidate’s unknown criminal history may affect your company’s reputation and credibility. A criminal record may also make an employee ineligible for an employment position requiring security clearances, national and international travel, and the requirement to be bonded.
Firing someone can be a dangerous proposition! An employee’s response to being notified of their employment being terminated can range from passive acceptance to extreme acts of violence. 70% of all workplace violence occurs during (hours or days leading up to) and after a termination of employment. We conduct a pre and post termination surveillance, liaise with public authorities and private security contractors, provide covert/discreet presence during the exit interview, conduct a post termination consultation, and provide assistance with arranging additional surveillance and security.
Some key points to identify a potentially high risk employee

A well placed undercover operative either short or long term, can uncover:
Example: We were once retained to determine the extent of pilferage of raw materials at the Canadian operation of a US based corporation. The undercover operative was in place for only a matter of a few weeks. He determined the cause of the loss of raw materials, but also determined that the night shift was working at only about 20 % efficiency, with 8 out of 10 employees, including the shift supervisors, spending most of their time playing cards, and even playing horseshoes for extended periods at the back of the property.
Upon reading our reports, the US based parent company elected to cancel plans to build a second production facility to increase production. They simply took control of the current facility, and increased production that more than met their needs, saving tens of millions of dollars.
Mitchell Partners provides a wide range of undercover investigation services using a combination of specially trained investigators and modern technology to observe, record and report on unwanted activity and practices in your place of business. The essence of a good undercover investigation, after careful assessment of the suspected problems, is the proper selection, deployment, and extraction of a covert operative at the operational level of the business.
The investigator’s primary objective is to gain the trust of the suspected perpetrators and legally obtain effective evidence that will withstand scrutiny of the courts and defense counsel. We also provide post investigation support, detailed reports and video, audio and photographic evidence. We will work with your Human Resources and Executive Management teams to ensure that unwanted activities stop, preventative measures are implemented, and that offenders are successfully prosecuted in both the civil and criminal courts.
IMPROVE CYBERSECURITY BY DISCOVERING THE WEAK POINTS IN YOUR IT INFRASTRUCTURE
A Vulnerability Scan is an on demand service used to assess all networks connected devices such as servers, computers, switches, network devices, peripherals, applications and more for known weaknesses. These scanners are used to discover the weak points or gaps within an IT Infrastructure.
The scan will be conducted using a combination of discovery tools for thorough detection. The results are then utilized to create a more robust and accurate picture of the vulnerabilities. The vulnerability scan can be done onsite or remotely using a secure VPN tunnel to access the infrastructure at your convenience.
We have partnered with Cyber Security experts with offices across Canada, who can assess your systems and protect you IT assets, in a prompt, efficient, and cost effective manner.
GPS TRACKING, EFFICIENCES AND WORKPLACE FRAUD
Many companies provide Fleet GPS services to ensure tracking of loads, service personnel, and sales staff. In addition, we provide GPS Tracking of individual company owned smart phones, which prevents employees defeating GPS trackers known to be in their vehicles.

“The term ‘occupational fraud’ may be defined as: ‘The use of one’s occupation for personal enrichment through the deliberate misuse or misapplication of the employing organization’s resources or assets.’ Occupational fraud schemes can be as simple as pilferage of company supplies or as complex as sophisticated financial statement frauds”
Anti-Fraud controls have proven to have a measureable impact in controlling internal theft and fraud. Mitchell Partners Investigation Services can assist you with “hardening the target” and reducing the risk of falling victim to dishonest managers and employees.
In today’s technologically advanced society we must be aware that electronic eavesdropping devices come in a variety of shapes, sizes and levels of sophistication. Devices can range from simple voice activated recorders or transmitters that activate when an appliance or light switch is turned on, to sophisticated switchback systems that allow your telephone or computer to be used to broadcast signals through your telephone lines even when the telephone is not in use.
Electronic scans, using modern state of the art equipment, are conducted to detect listening devices in offices, boardrooms, or residences. For obvious reasons we cannot reveal or detail the technology in use by our experts. What we can tell you is that our level of success is extremely high, our experts are recognized to be amongst the best in the country, and are in high demand.
