How Common Are Dishonest Job Applicants?
By Julio Vasquez, Marketing —
Every year, recruiters and managers spend a great deal of time and effort to bring the “best” people into their companies; at least that’s what they’re hoping to achieve. By hiring the right person for a job, a company can set itself in a really good position to compete and win. Most companies are looking for people with great skills and experience. For employers it is important to know what type of degree the applicant has and, the school where they got their title from, but they seem to forget the importance of integrity in the equation. Times are changing, and because of it, the time is now for companies to start paying attention to the details that can certainly set an employee apart from the rest, by helping their organization beat the competition.
Companies lose millions of dollars every year by hiring dishonest employees. An employees skills can be used for good or bad, but the attributes of loyalty, integrity, and honesty can help an employee achieve success. Screening potential employees by verifying academic credentials, previous employment, and even criminal background checks is not enough to verify how honest a potential employee will be for your company. We need more.

A good option we have to combat this is IntegrityDetect.

This test is easy to administer and will save companies from the headache and the loss of millions of dollars.
