PISA Integrity Assessment Centre Pre-Employment Polygraph Test
“It is generally accepted that the employer has a right to full and accurate information that is genuinely pertinent to the decision to employ a job applicant.” – Nicolene Erasmus and André Claassen.
The PISA Integrity Assessment Centre Pre-Employment Screening Examination is an invaluable tool that provides any company the peace of mind that can only be provided by clarity. When used in conjunction with other background verification products and psychometric testing we can offer the client an in-depth insight into their potential employee that cannot be obtained through any other means.
A Pre-Employment Polygraph Examination is an examination administered to prospective employees to collect and verify information that the prospective employer can use to assist them in making the right decisions with regards to the employment of a new person. These examinations can provide better insight into the prospective employee and warn of any risks that the potential employee poses to the company. How well do you really know the person that you are about to welcome into your business-home?
Health insurance companies advocates for healthy lifestyles and happily provides advice, special offers, promotions and incentives to help and support their clients to live healthy lifestyles. Not to mention the call for lock and key when insuring our everyday items. This is because they know that prevention is a lot more cost effective than cure. We believe they do make a great point . . .
Prevention is Better than the Cure
It is almost impossible to put an accurate figure on how much a company will save by implementing prudent and responsible security measures, in the same way that we can’t predict the overall savings of proper insurance on our belongings and health. What we do know is that the effects of criminal and unethical behaviour on a business can be devastating to your bottom line, your reputation and the morale of your employees. In some cases it can even be fatal.
When it comes to security at a business we are soon to forget the core on which any business is built: humans. So while we are quick to add another layer of electrified fencing to our gate, we are often careless to even consider who it is that we give the gate key to. Consider that you can have a camera in every corner of your office, but it is a human that is responsible for operating them.
With the high demand for employment in South Africa it is unfortunate that it is not unusual for potential employees to deceive potential employers, either to gain an illegitimate advantage over their competition, or even for far more sinister reasons. Syndicates and criminal groups use employees to gain access to your place of business potentially putting yourself, your company, your employees and your clients at risk.
“History has taught us: never underestimate the amount of money, time, and effort someone will expend to thwart a security system. It’s always better to assume the worst. Assume your adversaries are better than they are. Assume science and technology will soon be able to do things they cannot yet. Give yourself a margin for error. Give yourself more security than you need today. When the unexpected happens, you’ll be glad you did.” — Bruce Schneier
Pre-employment screenings should no longer be seen as a luxury, but rather a responsibility towards the company, the company employees and clients.
