81% of IT professionals support background screening

While this is an impression provided by just one industry, it would certainly be possible to suggest this represents the workforce overall. With organizations becoming wary of resumes because many include irrelevant buzzwords, exaggerations and lies, the study went on to say that “nearly two-thirds (64%) of IT professionals say resumes include misrepresentations of the truth.” Furthermore, four out of ten IT professionals say it is common for IT professionals to get positions for which they are unqualified. “If nearly half of your team was unqualified for their positions, you’d feel the pain — and so would your customers. Especially given the number of business demands IT departments must satisfy, it is critical for IT to hire the best people for each job,” says TEKsystems Director, Rachel Russell. “People are the foundation of any great enterprise. Quality screening practices are essential to gaining a truly competitive advantage.” Find a solution While many understand the importance of background screening, most struggle to find out how to get started. It’s integral you know how to perform background checks  as well as having knowledge on the types of background checks you are looking for. Additionally, with so many dubious screening companies out there, you must do your research and ensure you team up with a reliable and trustworthy background screening company.
