Background Screening

How many businesses in Ireland conduct background screening of new employee's? Well the statistics are simply not available, so we don't know. How many businesses should have a background screening policy - well that's easy to answer, every business should have one! The reasons are compelling:

  • Employee theft is at an all time high
  • Identity theft continues to be a concerning issue
  • It is estimated that between 40% and 60% of applicants simply lie or misrepresent their backgrounds on their CV's
  • Fake degrees are very easy to acquire
