Pre-Employment Screening from Security Watchdog
Whether we like it, or not, we live in a society where telling the odd 'white' lie is socially acceptable. So much so that job applicants now feel it is also OK to lie in business. Survey after survey shows that 50-60% of applicants exaggerate their qualification grades, work experience and job responsibilities thinking they will never be found out!
The purpose of pre-employment screening is to weed out the dishonest element among applicants and to ensure you only recruit people with integrity. Pre-employment screening comprises of a number of checks which evaluate an individual’s suitability to hold employment within your organisation. This should not be limited just to prospective new employees, but also to existing staff moving to a different job role in another department, as part of a continuous screening strategy.
Employment screening will...
- Deter those that either have a wish to infiltrate your company with an intent to cause harm from applying for employment.
- Detect more determined individuals who have such a subversive intent, at the recruitment/application stage.
- Deny or flag-up individuals unsuitable for employment in certain roles.
- Ensure you only recruit the right person for the right job.

The Importance of pre-Employment Screening
Without the correct pre-employment screening or background checks you just don't know who you are inviting into your office when you take on a new employee. Although the majority of people are honest, it is a fact that everyone lies on certain occasions and a competitive job market often leads those that are normally truthful to exaggerate a qualification, a previous employment position and whether or not they have a criminal record. With staff fraud on the rise employment screening should be part of the main backbone of any company's Counter-Fraud Policy. If you haven't yet adopted such a policy we strongly advise that you do so without delay.
