With the fast rate of globalisation, employment fraud is a growing problem for companies worldwide. False credentials such as fake degrees and inconsistency in employment history are on the rise and it is estimated that 40% of resumes contain false information.
Whether you are a small, mid-size or large corporation, people should be your greatest asset but they can also be your greatest risk. Hiring the right candidate with the right qualification and integrity is important but in today’s hiring climate, it is impossible to accept your candidate at face value. Doing a background check can help to determine if the information provided by the candidate is true and accurate as well as verifying candidate’s working experiences and honesty.
Negligent hires can potentially cause the company to lose money and a threat to its corporate reputation. Some aspect of a candidate’s history may not be suitable for certain positions such as someone with a criminal background may not be appropriate for a security officer position. Such information when not disclosed by the candidate, can only be found with a background check. Doing background screening check is a pre-emptive measure in protecting the organisation.
