Big industries and corporations should know that employee verification is absolutely necessary these days. It is a step towards safety in professional life.
To understand this concept in a better way, let’s say Mrs. A is running her own jewellery business successfully. She has high reputation in the industry and she has a team of subordinates working for her. To put it simply, she is financially sound and stable. One day after reaching her office, she finds out that one of her employee; Mr. B has run away with some of her expensive jewelleries, worth around 30- 35 lakhs. So, naturally what followed was a police investigation. After some police investigation, she finds out that Mr. B had a criminal record; he had already duped around 10 companies, before starting to work with her.
The past work experience details mentioned by him were totally fake. This is a very good example to show, how much employee verification is necessary these days. If she had conducted a thorough background check on him, with the help of professionals, she must have found about all this, before it was too late. Not only pre- employment investigation, if she had at least conducted post employment investigation, she may have found that something was wrong with Mr. B. Likewise an employee can pilfer your intellectual property, vital business information, client list, supplying chain mechanism etc. to pass it on to your competitor in trade. In fact that employee could have been “planted” in your office by your competitor to procure these details. Even your HR department or Head Hunter agency could be taken for a ride in inducting such a person.
From this example, you should understand that you cannot trust anybody without proper verification. There can be anybody around you, waiting to take advantage of your blind trust. Anybody can be a wolf in sheep’s clothing, these days.
Now, let’s take a look into another example. Mr. X is looking for a senior marketing executive in his company. Mr. Y comes for the interview. He has mentioned in his resume, that he has already worked as a marketing manager in ABC company for almost 10 years and under his educational qualifications he has mentioned that he has completed MBA with first division. He also manages to crack the interview somehow. Due, to his vast experience and knowledge, he gets hired by Mr. X. But, the truth is far more different than this. The reality is Mr. Y has not yet completed his MBA. He had to discontinue his studies, after a year, due to some family problems. After dropping out from his college, he had worked as a marketing intern for almost two and a half years. After that, he was kicked out of his company, due to his unprofessional behavior towards his colleagues. Then, after being unemployed for almost a year, he starting working as a junior marketing manager for almost 2 years in a small firm.
So, it can be seen that he clearly lied in order to get this job, which is far beyond his qualification and experience. Some people may argue that his lie is not such a big deal because, at least he had studied for MBA, just not completed it and some may say that at least he has some experience in marketing, so it’s not wrong to apply for this job and lie about his credentials.
Those people should know that a lie is a lie, no matter how big or small. He is completely at fault in this situation. He has misrepresented his credentials in order to unlawfully gain advantage over others, who were trying to compete with him for this job, who may be actually far more qualified and experienced than him. This is completely unfair to those genuinely talented candidates and most importantly, it is unfair to the employer who has spent so much time, money and his energy, in order to search for a perfect candidate.
The problem doesn’t end after he gets hired, in fact this is only the beginning of doom. So, let’s just say Mr. Y starts working in Mr. X’s firm. He may even manage the work for the few days in the beginning, but slowly he will be given tasks appropriate to a senior marketing executive. He will be given huge responsibilities and duties, on the basis of his seniority. Due to his incomplete education and lack of experience, it will not be wrong to say that he will perform insufficiently. This in turn, will lead to huge loss for the firm. At one point, Mr. X will be needed to answer for Mr. Y’s mistakes and in-capabilities. At the end, Mr. X will have to dismiss Mr. Y, in order to save his firm from further losses and search for any other competent person. As we can see, from this example, how
Sure, unemployment is a great misery, but fooling others regarding your qualifications and experience is nothing but a crime.
