Why is employment verification necessary?
A significant number of aspiring job applicants lie and falsify information on their resumes. In India, studies have shown that over 10% of people lie on their resume and these lies include details on education, criminal records, and even residential address.
Surprisingly, many of those applications who fabricate their job application still end up getting a job.
How is that possible? The lack of proper employee screening procedures.
Adriot Analytical Agencies Pvt. Ltd. is a detective agency in Kolkata and we have been running employee background checks for various companies in the city. One of the main reasons for hiding or falsifying information on applications arises from the fact that applicants do not wish to disclose their criminal past, wish to hide periods of unemployment so that it does not look bad on their resume and so on. For some of them, it is simply a means to get ahead in a fierce and competitive job market.
However, from a company’s standpoint, hiring employees who have provided false information is a huge loss. Adriot’s team has outlined some of the reasons below that make employee screening a necessity.
- Prevent resume fraud: The process of hiring an employee is a time-consuming one and a company has to spend a lot of money as well. If the resume fraud is found out from the get-go, the company does not have to waste time and money on the entire process and can eliminate the applicant from the start.
- Reduces employee theft: All types of the company carry some sort of confidential information that is not available to all employees, but to a handful of team members with certain credentials. There are cases where an employee had stolen such confidential information of a company and misused them in return for higher earnings. A quick background check would have eliminated the need to hire such an employee in the first place.
- Prevention of workplace violence: If you are unknowingly hiring someone with a criminal record of violence, it is possible that your other employees might get hurt. To prevent your employees from becoming a victim, avail our employee verification services.
