Qualified and Accredited

It is no accident that I used the word polygraph professional instead of polygraph examiners in the headline. Polygraph examinations are becoming increasingly popular as an effective tool in investigations and as part of a robust pre-employment screening system. Unfortunately, due to the great success, there is great demand, and where there is great demand, there is cheap imitation products. As Charles L. Yeschke put it in his paper he wrote in 1965; Ethics and the Polygraph Examiner: “Every profession, including law and medicine, has historically gone through a transition period of development similar to that which the detection of deception […]

Managing (Un)Acceptable Behaviour

The prevalence of unacceptable behaviour in the workplace is like the omni present bad weather. It pervades all aspects of business activity, and impacts, over and above the tangible effects of theft and fraud, employer/employee relations severely. Employees are assets and are responsible for generating wealth in it’s widest context. But employees may also pose the biggest single risk to the organisation. Management is about managing risk, including the risk posed by employees. Perceptions and attitude influence behaviour. Should an employee have the perception that he or she is ‘entitled’ to steal and that they can get away with theft, […]

Likewise social institutions such as the family, schools and religious bodies can be examined for the role they play in reducing or enhancing the likelihood of criminality in the community. For example, […]
