Bad Hires can cost you a world when it comes to Insider Threats, Brand Reputation, Financials, Peer’s safety and Workplace Culture! HR must ensure every candidate is Screened before Hiring!

What is the HR’s Role?

HR across organisations need to mitigate employee risks by adopting structured background screening programs. This involves creating a standard grid for classification of unacceptable gaps in candidate resumes and verified information, formulation of strict policies related to background screening during hiring, and implementing role-based background verification packages. These need to be customised in line with the risk associated with a profile. Structured background verification programs eliminate bias from the hiring cycle by treating all incoming employees at par. Identity verification and criminal background checks should be “must conduct” checks to ensure a safe workplace!

In a nutshell, organisations need to adapt themselves to the changing fraud paradigm and keep reinventing their background verification program to mitigate risks and create a safe workplace! To know more, schedule an appointment with our expert today.
