With Hindsight

We met with a friend over supper the other night. He was troubled. Normally not the sort to bring his work home, he was concerned about a member of his staff. Without giving much away and yet sharing his fears, it would seem that he is in a predicament.

This made me think. Do you really know who you are employing every time you interview someone? On paper, the person might seem suitable. Certainly smooth talkers with impressive CVs can so easily pull the wool over your eyes. CVs can be faked too.

So what can you do? Apart from calling their previous employer and and checking thoroughly the reference given in the CV, it is also wiser and safer to have get professional employee screening services. Better be safe than to be sorry.

Not that it helps my friend at present. But perhaps that is for future reference…..
