South African employers now have to change their modis operandi when making employment and hiring decisions.
Recently we have seen many senior high profile leaders in both corporate and government entities being caught out for lying on their CVs and job applications. Jeff Miller the acting CEO of Fraud Check estimates that at least 20% of job applicants lie on their CV’s.
Corporate South Africa has to be so careful when making employment decisions. It is so easy to make a mistake, and an employer only unfortunately finds out their costly errors down the line. This is after spreading huge costs with employment agencies, hours spent in the interview process, as well the sunk cost of training of dishonest employees.
Miller believes that by simply utilizing Fraud Checks pre-employment screening, employers can nip the problem in the bud and save tens of thousands of rand per employee by verifying critical information upfront.
Appointing and hiring the wrong staff is extremely costly, and very bad for company and staff morale.
Fraud Check has an online pre-employment screening tool that allows for real time checking of valid ID numbers, previous work history, credit vetting and criminal record checking. Employers can also verify tertiary education qualifications, validation of matric certificates, association checks and authenticating valid drivers licenses.
