Studies have established that 40% of people put misleading information on their resume.
Pre-employment screening saves you from litigation and costly hiring mistakes. When you hire people for your organization a lot is at stake in terms of money, time, reputation and even your brand. Once you have hired a person you and your company can be held liable for his or her actions especially when you don’t hire him or her through proper pre-employment screening procedure.
Hiring aptly talented and trustworthy employees is highly critical for your survival and growth whether you are a small business or a Fortune 500 company. As technology and science takes long strides, screening requirements have evolved into intricate exercises. Simple reference checks just don’t work these days as security breaches, data and identity thefts, workplace harassments, drug addiction and financial embezzlement are becoming rampant.

Is pre-employment screening prohibitively costly? Hardly. While hiring a suitable employee for your company you may spend anywhere between $4,000 and $50,000, you can avail our pre-employment screening services at a tiny fraction of this cost; merely 0.5% to 2%, dependent upon the features you want included.
Do you think pre-employment screening is an overkill and waste of money? Although we don’t believe in spreading phobias and a feeling of mistrust between employers and employees, as I’ve mentioned above, over 40% job candidates lie on their resumes. Worse, almost 11% pre-employment screenings reveal criminal records. These figures more than justify thorough and professional investigation and verification before you hire someone.
