In an ever-increasingly compliance-driven market-place, determining whether a candidate will be a 'good fit' for your business has become more critical to the hiring process.
As such, pre-employment checks are now an integral part of the recruitment process; reducing the risk of hiring employees who might cause difficulties for the organisation, its employees and clients going forward.
According to HireRight's 2017 employment screening benchmark report, 85% of employers caught applicants lying on their résumés or applications, up from just 66% five years ago.
Despite the international workforce becoming increasingly cohesive through technology, few organisations have developed a global screening program. With cost of a ‘bad hire’ estimated to be between 4x and 15x the annual salary, hiring firms simply cannot afford to ignore this critical part of the recruiting process.
Together with Procius, we now provide a complete online employee screening solution with real-time updates and 24/7 online access. Services and levels of due diligence are available across all packages and on a Pay-As-You-Go basis.
The risks of doing nothing:
