58% of Hiring Managers Catch Resume Lies

According to a CareerBuilder survey, 58% of hiring managers have caught lies on candidate resumes.  With the cost of recruiting, hiring and training an employee reaching into the thousands, it pays to make sure you’re hiring the right candidate the first time.

To protect your company, consider using background screening as an effective tool to keep out the cheats.  Background screening can check a wide range of areas including:

  • Criminal records
  • Employment & education
  • Motor vehicle reports
  • Professional licensing
  • And many other areas…

Background screening can be especially important when the employee is in a safety sensitive position involving children, elderly, money or expensive equipment.  The state & federal laws governing the use of background screening are complex, so be sure to seek legal advice before implementing a program at your company.
