2. PRE EMPLOYMENT SCREENING
Statistics from the US have proved that 40%
of employees steal from their workplace within the first two weeks of
employment. 20% of the remainder will be stealing within a year –
and 20% of that remainder will be stealing within two years, of which
80% could be considered to be committing regular thefts.
SA Statistics show that ordinary employees are involved
in 75% of corruption and fraud in companies and managers account for
These are disturbing statistics are they not? Thorough
pre employment screening conducted by our experienced specialists we
can assist you in bringing down these alarming statistics within your
ASSESSMENT FORENSIC INTERVIEW QUESTIONNAIRE
The Interviewer conducts a comprehensive oral interview
with the candidate. The interview is conducted in an open and friendly
manner and encourages open and frank discussion between the interviewer
and the candidate. Various aspects of employment and general life
attitudes are discussed. We discuss each position the candidates has
held with previous employers, the duration of employment and their
reasons for leaving. During this interview candidates are afforded the
opportunity to admit to past misdemeanours or disclose any critical
information. Gambling or use of recreational drugs and alcohol are also
discussed. Candidates' responses are recorded on the Forensic Interview
Document which is submitted to the client.
It is our experience that candidates view the
interviewer as a completely independent and unbiased consultant. A
position of trust is formed between the interviewer and the candidate
to the extent that candidates admit and disclose various aspects of
their life that they have never disclosed before. Additionally in many
cases, because they feel confident and have built trust with the
interviewer, once employed they have been known to contact us and
disclose improper conducts of other employees.
In short the interviewer is viewed as an independent and
unbiased confidant. It is far easier for an employee to confide in a
person who is not directly employed by the company.
4. PAST EMPLOYMENT REFERENCE VALIDATION
We thoroughly investigate the candidates past work
history, and strongly believe in a ‘no short-cuts’ approach
to this important function. We verify that all work history reported in
CV’s corresponds with the employment history on a
candidate’s ITC report. Obviously, if employment with a
particular company is listed on the candidate’s ITC report, but
is omitted from his CV we investigate and report on this. We have
uncovered many known thieves and unsavoury individuals through this
We obtain comprehensive and unbiased references. Unlike Personnel
Agencies or other recruitment consultants we are not reliant on any
placement fee. Our fee is fixed and guaranteed regardless of whether or
not the candidate is employed. Therefore we do not conceal or edit any
information that we may discover in respect of any candidate.
5. ITC REPORT AND OTHER CHECKS AND BALANCES
An ITC inquiry is conducted and we report on any
Judgements or defaults that we may find. Also any conflict in
employment history. We also conduct Criminal Record checks, and verify
6. PERSONALITY COLOUR PROFILE (PCP)
This process was developed by a Swiss Psychologist. From
the selection and rejection of eight colours we are able to identify
certain personality traits attributed to the candidate. It is
interesting to note that many of the candidates who are given their
colour profiles confirm they are accurate. (This is the only aspect of
the screening that candidates are privy to. All other information is
for the client only.)
7. TRUST RISK SURVEY (Pen
and Paper scored questionnaire)
Subjects are interviewed and tested to determine their
honesty and dishonesty levels and their potential to commit theft and
fraud in the workplace.
We are the sole agents for a unique and effective
survey, which accurately indicates a candidates Trust Risk index, and
Alienation attitude towards employers, supervisors, co-workers, work,
pay and benefits.
These surveys which were developed by Forensic Psycho physiologists,
and experts in human behaviour, are widely used in the USA and now in
South Africa. They provide a scored evaluation of a subjects' Trust
The Alienation Index score displays a subjects' attitude
towards superiors, employers and authority. It has been proven that
people with a high Alienation score are more likely to commit theft and
fraud in the workplace.
The survey is a pen and paper process and candidates
simply indicate whether they agree or disagree with various statements.
The survey is not presented as a pass-fail test, but
rather a trustworthiness attitude and performance potential indicator.
Studies have shown that persons with low scores have been shown to have
a higher incidence of favourable trustworthy behaviour than those with
higher scores. i.e. the higher the score the higher the risk of theft
in the workplace by the individual concerned. The Trust Risk Survey
score indicates an individuals predisposition to fraud and theft in the
8. RESULTS/REPORTING OF PRE-EMPLOYMENT
The interviewer compares all information gleaned from
the candidate, the Forensic interview, their CV, ITC report, and
Employment References, A comprehensive report on the candidate is
compiled and concludes with a recommendation as to whether or not to
proceed with consideration of employment.
From the information we provide, you will be able to
reach an Informed Employment Decision. We report on a
candidates potential for dishonesty and deception.
Since we strive to supply our clients with all the
possible options available, we also do polygraph test for those clients
with that specific need.
10. STATEMENT CONTENT ANALYSIS (SCAN)

the subjects' words. In order to conduct SCAN, we
only need the words (statement) either given verbally or in writing. SCAN
