Description
Over 90% of U.S. businesses screen candidates versus only 45% of Canadian organizations. We are a trusting, warm, “big hug” country, welcoming young and old, male and female and all races to our places of employment - which is one reason why we live in Canada. However, we expose that NEW person to our existing staff, company assets, proprietary information, products, materials, systems, and of course your business reputation. He or she sounds good, looks competent, is sharp, has glowing recommendations and a stellar education, now what? Do you spend the time and money to check and verify or go on your gut feeling? Today the risks are too great.

Times have changed; 11% of new hires have criminal records and they hope you do not run that search. They want what you have - and that’s not your job offer. There has been a reported 45% rise in resume and application fabrications and embellishments. Over 3,000 diploma mills worldwide have increased fraudulent degrees, even for grade 12 diplomas. There are creative past employer cover ups and created references.

We will review industry oversight and controls for the business of Canadian Employment Screening and what standards you should follow and expect from if outsourcing.

What will you learn? We will review consistent analytical screening programs that will consider job responsibilities while being mindful of Human Rights, PIPEDA and respecting time and money. Need to knows in outsourcing your screening to a company in Canada, the USA or internationally. We will explore tips on Past Employment, Criminal Records, Driver Compliance tools, Education, Credit, Global Risk (terrorist checks) and the ever controversial Social Networks. Whether you hire one or thousands you need to have the tools to only hire the best: great employees are your number one asset, so join us.

I was happy to hear the comparison of US and Canadian reference checks as a number of US firms follow only their own processes and I think we need to increase the awareness of these differences. Thank you. 4 / 5
