What is an undercover shopper?

Business owners may hire an undercover shopper to discover if there is any dishonest or illicit activity going on between employees or customers. An undercover shopper will act as if they are a client or customer in your business to recover information.

What are the reasons to hire an undercover shopper?

There are many reasons for a business to hire an undercover shopper. One of the primary reasons is that the owner may suspect their employees are acting dishonestly. This may include acts such as shoplifting or otherwise not abiding by the company’s policy.

To gain access to information about your business, an undercover shopper will pose as an employee. They will conduct research in the business and once they have collected their findings, they will report back to you. To collect information, they will ask employees questions regarding your business. They will also note how each employee acts while they are on the clock.

You may hire an undercover shopper to learn competitive business practices that may be of use to you and your business. Hiring an undercover shopper can limit the risk of legal issues regarding your business.

The primary goal of an undercover shopper is to collect and present information to the business owner that will ensure the business is functioning optimally.
