Being truthful is a trait that not a lot of people possess. Though significant, the trend of speaking the truth has been vanishing from the society as people are getting involved in acts that are immoral and unethical in nature. To cover such acts, these people tend to lie to others, which gives rise to a major concern.
According to a research, the resumes that arrive at a company are 20% fabricated and contains information that is not true. Moreover, during interviews, people tend to lie a lot so as to impress the management and trick them into offering the position to them. Though most of these people do not pose any serious threat to the firm, there is always a minor chance of a candidate being a criminal.
Therefore, a firm should always keep a express screening on its candidates so as to ensure that they are free of any criminal or immoral behaviors. If not done so, the firm can end up hiring the wrong employee, which will destroy its prestige and reputation in the market.
