HR departments also manage background checks for potential employees, an increasingly important job as the risk of hiring a misrepresenting employee rises. USA Fact, a provider of screening services for recruiting departments, recently conducted a survey of over 300,000 background checks, and found that among the potential employees, 5 percent had criminal histories, more than a third had motor vehicle violations, 18 percent had employment histories that could not be verified, and approximately 11 percent had been falsifying their education experience. By catching fraudulent records such as these, human resources departments can significantly reduce employee theft, turnover, and even workplace violence.
