Anderson, CA, April 29, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Call it an untruth, a white lie, a major falsification or a breach of trust – the risks are significant. Employee dishonesty can cause you and your organization major embarrassment, bad publicity, loss of credibility in your industry or, in the worst cases, it may cause your organization to fail.
There are three choices you can make if you wish to prevent this type of falsification from happening in your organization. They are:
1. Hire an outside firm to verify all resumes for authenticity and accuracy.
Expect to pay somewhere in the range of $6.00 to $20.00 per verification based on the number of verifications you request a year. If you have other needs, these companies can supply criminal record searches, applicant tracking services, job-boards, internal human resources service outsourcing. Three of the largest firms supplying these services are; Pre-Employ.com, Inc (www.pre-employ.com), Choicepoint (www.choicepoint.com) and Kroll (www.Kroll.com)
2. Ask the applicant to supply their own certification.
In today’s society, the skeptical (yet polite) questioning of an applicants resume is becoming more acceptable. Applicants can go directly to the school or institution and return with their certified transcripts.
Many applicants are ahead of the honesty curve by certifying their own resume through companies like MyBackgroundCheck.com (www.MyBackgroundCheck.com). The applicant pays a one time verification fee that allows multiple employers to access the verified information. The system assures that the information has not been altered by the applicant thus assuring authenticity. Hundreds of universities and colleges require students to utilize this company prior to admission to the school or specific programs. Consider pointing applicants to this service for third party certification.
3. Do your own verifications.
Pick up the phone yourself and call the college or institution directly. Be prepared to supply identifying information and possibly a release form allowing access to your records. Many schools charge a fee for this service ($10.00 to $20.00 each) and require the request to be in writing with the check.
