Here's the one thing successful recruiters do BEFORE they hire

by , 23 October 2014
In recent months, we've heard countless stories of high profile people who've inflated their CVs to get jobs.

SABC COO, Hlaudi Motsoeneng comes to mind for lying about having a matric certificate. SABC Chairperson, Ellen Tshabalala and ANC member, Pallo Jordan also come to mind for lying about their academic qualifications.

If you've had the same problem in your company - hiring an applicant only to discover two months down the line he lied about having a qualification - you're guilty of not doing the one thing successful employers do before they hire. And you're putting your company in jeopardy.

By doing this one thing, successful employers are always certain that the people working for them have the correct qualification and haven't inflated their CVs simply to get the job.

Read on to find out what this one thing is so, before you hire, you can do it too.

Successful recruiters do this one thing before they hire

 
The one thing successful recruiters do before they hire is conduct background checks.
 
That's right.
 
Before you hire a new employee, you need to make sure his CV is correct by doing background checks.
 
In this article, experts behind the Practical Guide to Human Resources Management explain five background checks you must do before you hire.

The say you need to do:
 
  1. ID number verification;
  2. Driver's licence verification;
  3. Criminal record checks;
  4. Credit checks; and
  5. Qualification verification.
 
Now that you know about the one thing successful recruiters do before they hire, do it too so you can also be certain the people working for you haven't inflated their CVs to get the job and have the qualifications they say they do.
