Employment Screening

Our robust verification methodology developed and refined over the years has proven to be instrumental in the detection of dishonest and fraudulent candidates worldwide.


Verifying the credentials of a job applicant is crucial to minimizing recruitment costs concerning training, hiring replacement, productivity impact, preparation by HR and interviewers involved in each procedure. Unapparent costs associated with compliance and reputational risks which are often neglected can prove to be costly once the damage is done. Any discrepancy or slight dishonesty in the application should warrant a closer look at the candidate's background. In particular, the impact of leadership or senior management roles can be immense in the culture and the reputation of the company. Due care should be taken in screening for noncompliance, convictions and potential conflict of interests when hiring or promoting existing employees into these roles.
