So, Just Who Do You Think You’re Employing?


Scenario:  Your company is looking for a top level executive to join your team.  You use every type of screening tool known to man to make sure this guy is who he says he is.  You run a background check with all of the bells and whistles, a drug and alcohol test, an assessment test – basically, the works.  The results come back and this person is as clean as a whistle.  You hire him, he does a fantastic job and makes your company oodles and oodles of money.  Where could you have possibly gone wrong?

Well, for starters, did you screen his administrative assistant?  Or how about the mail room employee?  Or the intern you hired for the summer?

Understandably, there are some companies out there who cannot justify spending the money to screen lower level employees, even conducting the most basic of background checks.  But a new study out of the U.K. indicates that it is the lower level employees that commit more fraud than those top level executives costing employers millions and millions of dollars every year.

It might be time for those companies to re-think that decision, don’t you think?
