USA, NY ( March 1, 2013 - Last month, I wrote an article about how exactly important it's to possess some way of detecting fraud in your IT organization, particularly because of the proven fact that your organization keeps the keys to the company's necessary information resources. Equally important is having some way of stopping untrustworthy people from getting use of your IT organization in the very first place. Criminal back ground checks on job prospects are performed as a matter obviously for that very purpose, right? Well, do not be therefore certain.

My crucial downside from the study conducted come july 1st by the Society for Human Resource Management was that criminal back ground checks aren't conducted not quite as frequently by companies in the hiring process when I might have expected. I type of assumed these inspections are done in only about all choosing circumstances as an easy matter of research. Works out that's incorrect at all.

In line with the study, significantly less than 70 criminal background investigations are conducted by percent of organizations on all work candidates, and 14 percent of the remainder never trouble to conduct them at all. And people who do conduct them are far more worried about dodging the bullet of legal liability than that of crimes perpetrated by employees: Fifty-two percent of businesses conduct criminal background inspections as a way of decreasing legal liability for negligent hiring, while only 36 percent conduct them to lessen or avoid criminal activity.

Don't misunderstand --- I'm not suggesting for a minute that the individual who includes a criminal history is fundamentally unworthy for thought for employment within an IT shop. I'm greatly aware that great people do silly things, that second odds are a necessity in existence, and than we do today that if everybody who goofed up got caught, we'd have a great deal more people with criminal history records.

But I'd claim that not doing a criminal back ground check always as a matter obviously when employing any worker is silly. Without it, there's a blind spot in the job prospect analysis procedure that increases the danger of severe harm to the organization and its resources down the line.

The amount of information pulled was amazing. It mentioned every-where this team had lived returning ten years, including various citizens living at the same goal. To the surprise, this team have now been dealing with another of the organization employees. Not just was this an absolute program breach, but a brand new gate way was also exposed because of it to the evaluation.

These folks were actually background check always experts. The history inspections they gave us launched yet another employee essential to the study that people may have probably ignored and lost numerous more pounds in the process of pinpointing the offenders. Based on this new information, we could examine and handle near to $100,000 in failures in the last five years both of these thieves was used at our organization. Had we done this type of pre-employment confirmation to begin with, these employees wouldn't have now been hired to begin with.
