Use a trusted screening business to build a better workforce

DIY screening might appear to save you money and time and can seem an attractive choice when you need to recruit quickly. But with CV fraud on the rise, constantly changing legislation and the risk of reputational damage due to the transparent culture we now live in, background screening is not an area where you should cut corners.

The dangers of not properly screening candidates include CV fraud, non-compliance, reputational damage, civil or criminal proceedings, health and safety violations, money laundering, financial implications and even terrorist activity. But that isn’t an exhaustive list. As an employer, building a better workforce is crucial to ensure a successful business.

With 32% of job hunters willing to lie on their CV in order to get a better job, HR departments must be vigilant. And while bumping up an A-level grade or two might seem trivial, CV fraud can have very grave consequences for your company. From employing someone unable to carry out a role safely, through to welcoming an individual intent on infiltrating your company in order to steal money, data or cause damage, fraud prevention is one of the biggest advantages of carrying out comprehensive pre-employment screening.

Reputational damage can have a huge effect on not only sales and profits but also the ability to attract and retain top talent. In this highly competitive job market, the best candidates have their pick of employers, and are less likely to accept an offer from a company with a bad reputation.

By ensuring that all staff members are who they say they are and have the necessary skills and qualifications to do their job properly, employers can have peace of mind that their business is in the safe hands of an exceptional workforce.

Using a specialist screening company who can advise on the right checks for your role, industry or sector will help ensure that you make the best possible hiring decisions while remaining compliant to current legislation.
