What is the consequence of hiring someone who is not what they claim to be, or what is the truth about a candidate’s degrees or and experience? The truth is that this is not a game, and while we hope all our hiring consequences are happy ones, we know that it can be sometimes somewhat of a Gong Show. An employee without the specified training or education required can bring serious negative consequences to the company including litigation, harm to employees, or monetary loss. The negative consequences might be a loss of company reputation which could leave a lasting impact on financial goals
Seventy-five percent of HR Managers say they have caught lies on resumes. That is a challenging number, and it makes validating assertions more than a thoughtful consideration. Companies are finding they need more than the black and white claims of the person desperately seeking work. It becomes of increasingly pressing importance to get a fully rounded truthful picture of a person’s hard and soft skill levels in today’s workplace.
Checking and verifying references takes time and patience. Waiting for the professionals to get back to you to confirm licensing, educational standards or employment checks can be an on-going frustration. That nagging worry about your front-line people interacting with the public’s money, or your organization’s youth can give restless sleeps. Worker’s misrepresenting their safety certifications, hazardous material documentations or their driving record can give cause for concern.
For these reasons and numerous others, today more HR Managers are beginning to double-down on verifying candidate’s claims. Partnering with a pre-employment screener has never been a more attractive option in terms of time, money saved, and employee retention. While it has been normal for executive hires to be thoroughly vetted, the time has come to make the screening of all employees a normative practice as you build the heartbeat of your company culture.
