Utilizing the expertise of our team of Loss Prevention professionals, The Zellman Group offers consulting support with company-wide collaboration. Our team has the pulse on industry-wide best practices in the retail, food & beverage and hospitality arenas. Policies and procedures are the lifeblood of a company. Internal controls are the key to accountability and promoting consistency. Whether a company is large or small, it should develop a policy and procedure manual that is continuously updated as needed to guide its employees, and connect the company’s vision to daily operations.
If data analysis and/or other information show sufficient evidence that a potential dishonest employee exists, The Zellman Group can provide report details to your internal Loss Prevention team, or we can handle the investigation upon your authorization. Investigations can be done on location, or through telephonic interviews. A case report is provided upon the completion of our investigation, and we can coordinate police involvement if necessary. Furthermore, our clients are named as additional insured on our $2 million Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy. All of our investigators are fully trained and certified annually. Their skill at interviewing can result in increased admissions, restitution, and prosecution (if desired). This not only puts an end to the situation, you may also recover lost funds – building a compelling ROI for your loss prevention program investments.
