CUT DOWN EMPLOYEE THEFT
Increasingly rising employee theft today costs companies thousands to millions of dollars a year in losses. Statistics may vary slightly, but point to the fact that dishonest employees steal 4-6 times the amount stolen by shoplifters .
Many of the same retailers who want to recover lost profits, and have dealt with the expense of acquiring robust anti-shoplifting programs would be better served to address the issue of inventory shrinkage related to employee theft!
In addition to the ever increasing retail employee theft in C-Stores, supermarkets, fast food franchises, we are witnessing trucking and warehouse employees’s theft collusion. Assisted Living Facilities and Health Care employee theft occurs in falsified medical cases, drug theft, and altered billing.
Reducing white collar embezzlement, padded expense accounts, and phantom vendors are amongst the major challenges our clients face today.
With The Select4Hire™ Integrity Test, candidates who make admissions about job related thefts are not recommended for hire.
AVOID HIRING VIOLENT OR HOSTILE EMPLOYEES AND WORKPLACE BULLIES
During the course of the hiring process, the Select4Hire ™ Integrity Test identifies those High Risk applicants who have admitted recent violent and/or bullying behavior, and therefore have a greater chance of endangering the workplace. The knowledge that comes from this type of disclosure is invaluable in protecting the safety of your workplace.
According to the Workplace Bullying Institute, the impact of workplace bullying can often result in both negative mental and physical effects ranging from headaches to heart attacks! Research supports a direct correlation between workplace bullying and domestic violence.
Some of the 2013 findings from The Bureau of Labor Statistics, Department of Justice, and National Institute of Safety and Health (NIOSH) include that workplace violence costs over 120 billion dollars a year nationwide, and that nonfatal assaults alone results in more than 876,000 workdays a year.
Nearly one out of every five on-the-job fatalities is the result of workplace violence.
The Select4Hire ™ Integrity Test identifies those High Risk applicants who have admitted recent violent and/or bullying behavior, and therefore have a greater chance of endangering the workplace. The knowledge that comes from this type of disclosure is invaluable in protecting the safety of your workplace.
REDUCE ON THE JOB DRUG /ALCOHOL ABUSE
2013 statistics from DAWN (Drug Abuse Warning Network) indicate that there were 5.1 million drug-related ER visits last year, of which 1,428,145 were attributed to misuse or abuse of pharmaceutical prescriptions, and 1,250,500 involved illicit drugs.
Since the vast majority of companies have less than 100 people, if yours is a medium or large sized business, the odds are that one of your employees or coworkers wound up at a hospital ER for substance abuse treatment!
The Select4Hire™ Integrity Test identifies those High Risk applicants who are abusing drugs and/or alcohol on the job. By obtaining this information about a potential hire, your organization can make better selection decisions and dramatically reduce its risk and complicity in workplace accidents. Working under the influence of any illegal substance, drug and/or on the job alcohol drinking can be remarkably dangerous, particularly in industries whose operations involve automobiles, heavy equipment, power tools, or chemicals.
57% REDUCTION IN WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LOSS RATES
Contrary to many peoples’ assumptions, workers compensation costs ARE controllable.
You have the ability to directly effect your experience rating.
Safety programs are essential. Notwithstanding, hiring the right ‘safe’ person is crucial.
In a 2011 study published by Pacific University’s School of Professional Psychology, researchers studied whether or not the use of integrity tests in pre-employment screening had an impact on the size of worker’s compensation claims across a number of industries. The study concluded that the compensation claims filed by unscreened workers were both more frequent and also of a substantially larger dollar value than those filed by workers who were vetted via a form of integrity test.
The Select4Hire Integrity Test™ protects your organization from selecting workers who have confessed to prior exaggeration of workplace injury severity and/or who have disclosed their participation in insurance scams.
REDUCE EMPLOYEE TURNOVER
Though reducing employee turnover is not a primary intent of the Select4Hire Integrity Test™, its power as a screening tool has been found to attract committed and dependable workers, and bolster sustainable hiring practices.
