Screening employees to strengthen risk management
Screening personnel before they start their new position is not an unnecessary luxury. ‘Three-quarters of CVs contain untruths: people are afraid that they won’t get the job,’ was the headline of the AD newspaper 2019. These untruths can involve minor adjustments, but also larger fabrications. The latter can have serious consequences. A miss-hire not only increases the risk of financial costs but also creates a risk of reputational damage.
Screening helps ensure quality and integrity
The majority of untruths in resumes relate to work experience (44%) and education (37%). For example, (unintentional) mistakes are often made in noting the period of employment; someone may indicate having worked for an organisation until July 1st when in reality it was until June 31st. However, not all untruths are innocent. It may be that the individual’s job title is deliberately made more significant. For instance, the job title on the resume may contain more responsibilities than in reality.
