President Obama has issued a new policy for screening employees with “sensitive” jobs. The new policy affects tens of thousands of federal employees who will need to undergo lie detection tests covering topics such as information leaked internationally or to the media.
It seems the Obama Administration wishes to crack down on breaches of conduct by using pre-employment screening. There are allegations of many inconsistencies and abuses going unchecked in the past.
Problems with the Polygraph
One main problem with the standard polygraph test is that it can arrive at erroneous conclusions due to the basic anxieties or stress of the examinee. Also, if a person taking a polygraph test is a close friend or acquaintance of the person administering the test, there is a high chance that the questions and answers might be skewed.
Such outcomes could cause the government huge headaches, because the wrong person could be hired; hiring the wrong person could lead to even bigger challenges.
Pre-Employment Screening Solutions
The root of this problem could be solved with a revolutionary new product called EyeDetect™. It is a non-intrusive and highly accurate lie detection product that scans the movements and subtle changes of the eye.
EyeDetect is the most disruptive technology to come to the lie detection market since the polygraph itself, with the potential to change the way the federal government pre-screens its employees.
