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!

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. We offer bespoke corporate screening packages to ensure the checks we perform are thorough and relevant to your industry.


The Importance of screening

Without the correct pre employment 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.
