Recent surveys conducted by employment agencies reveal a growing trend amongst job seekers to lie blatantly on their application forms. Most especially the tendency is for prospective employees to inflate their qualifications and level of experience and expertise. Pre-employment background checks are becoming critical for companies who need to identify potential security risks early on.
It is also well established that approximately one third of all business failures are caused by employee theft, including embezzlement, corruption & collusion.
With current labour legislation weighted heavily in favour of the protection of employees' rights, it is no longer possible to simply dismiss an employee on the spot. A company that has not initiated a pre-employment screening programme, has inadequate security controls and lacks strict company policies is even more susceptible to internal losses. Conducting background checks and employee profiling before hiring staff is a proactive step to reduce internal risk.
Justicia Investigations subscribes to various electronic information services and databases which are invaluable tools in a background screening process.
