The need for screening
Detection of thieves, fraudsters, illegal workers, terrorists and other individuals that do not have your best interest at heart is a major concern these days. The increasing number of cases of employees, some in senior or highly sensitive posts, who have been found to be fraudulent, in many cases, months or even years after they had been employed, has been widely reported.
The implications for employing organisations have at best been ‘a serious inconvenience’ and, at worst, 'extremely damaging' to their reputations, image and financial standing. Misquoted qualifications, for example, have resulted in huge drops in share prices overnight, major fines and criminal proceedings. But this is not an uncommon phenomenon. A number of research projects reveal that anything between 30% and 60% of workers have been untruthful when applying for jobs.
The financial consequences are potentially serious. There are large fines for employing illegal workers even if hired through an agency. And that’s not all. Figures show that security breaches including forgery, fraud and data theft by staff costs businesses several billion pounds a year.
The facts don’t lie. It has never been more important to have in place an effective and robust pre-employment screening programme. Agenda provides a range of pre-employment services and support initiatives, designed to help employers win the battle against the enemy within, before, rather than after, their businesses have been compromised.
