Avoid risk and increase confidence when making hiring decisions

Nearly one in 10 job seekers embellishes their qualifications (Inc. Magazine 8/1/2008), and negligent hiring lawsuits and employee theft are on the rise. Background screening can help companies avoid pitfalls resulting from misinformation.

Today there are many reasons to be cautious in checking an applicant's past:

  • Nearly one in 10 job seekers admits to embellishing qualifications on a job application, according to Inc. Magazine (8/1/2008)
  • More than 48.5 percent of retailer losses are due to employee theft, according to a University of Florida study. Up from 46 percent the prior year, internal theft by employees cost retailers a record $15 billion in profits
  • Negligent hiring lawsuits are on the rise. If an employee's actions hurt someone, the employer may be liable
  • Current events have mandated an increase in employment screening

With these threats on the rise, employers no longer feel secure in relying on instinct as a basis for hiring. A bad decision can wreck havoc on a company's budget and reputation, and may well ruin the career of the hiring official. You have good reason to be cautious in checking an applicant's past, and our background screening services can help to avoid pitfalls resulting from incomplete or inaccurate information.
