Have you done a Pre-Employment Screening or background check on your next employee?


The business of employment is costly. It can be even more costly if a wrong decision is made at the point of employment. Quite often employers view the information provided in resumes as being accurate and do not investigate the contents. It has been the experience of Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group that many resumes are designed to conceal the truth. The management of Lyonswood have never been presented with a reference that states that the applicant is a thief, malingerer or is incompetent. To the contrary, they are usually glowing and embellished. Quite often there are gaps in the employment history that are unexplained or exaggerations of periods of employment to mislead.

How are resumes falsified?

Job applicants go to great lengths to impress, even to the point of identifying companies who have been recently liquidated or taken over in the hope that personnel files have been destroyed. This would enable a job applicant to hide behind a host of false credentials, knowing well that this history will not be able to be accessed for confirmation. The I.T. industry is rife with false credentials, this is because since the I.T. boom/bust many companies have folded and along with them, their records.

Overseas postings is another medium through which job applicants can embellish their work history with a reduced risk of being detected. As members of the World Association Of Detectives (WAD) and the World Investigators Network (WIN) Lyonswood is well placed to source and verify this information.

Many employers are guilty of not taking affirmative action when uncovering illegal activities by employees in the workplace. This inaction allows employees to move from one employer to another making victims out of them all.
