Our statistics show that over 30% of successful candidates are found to be unfit for the role after investigation. Of those, most cases are falsifications of resumes and truancy issues. These are issues that can only be unveiled by investigation ? judgment cannot be based just on interviews and tests.
In order to select the right candidate, a background check is absolutely essential.
It’s recommended for employers to inform the job seekers prior to the investigations being conducted, and to receive their consent.

Pre-employment Screening

Pre-employment screening is another name for recruitment investigations. We investigate the accuracy of the contents declared in applicants’ resumes and the remarks they make during their interview. Based on this, a report on the appropriateness of the candidate is delivered.

Reference Check

This method of recruitment screening has become mainstream in the US and other regions.
The applicant supplies the contacts (superiors, co-workers), and an investigation of some predetermined areas is conducted.
There are many cases where both a regular investigation and a reference check are conducted together.

Headhunting/Recruitment Professionals

The recruitment investigations are conducted on the candidate provided by a headhunting agency. (If a resume is available, this will be a “specialist investigation”.)
A list of candidates identified by headhunting is also available.
