Although most businesses have high standards, they are also challenged by limited resources. In addition, they frequently need to move quickly when the time comes to make a hire. Each applicant and new-hire can add a new business and security risk for an organization. Fortunately, performing background checks on applicants and employees is an effective way to discover these potential issues that could affect your business.
Whether you are operating from a single location or an International Corporation with thousands of sites, VES has a drug testing solution that fits your drug-free workplace program. We can offer our clients a full suite of testing methodologies and services including:
• Laboratory based urine and/or oral fluid drug testing
• Alcohol screening and breath alcohol testing
• Physical exams and wellness services – DOT and client specific exam protocols
Unfortunately, not all applicants are totally honest about their qualifications and may make some slight or even egregious misrepresentations of their educational and professional backgrounds. According to recent studies, 88% of respondents reported that background screening has exposed a person who lied on a resume. Verification services, which include checking employment histories, educational degrees, and professional licenses, can help employers ensure that applicants have the qualifications and backgrounds you require for an open position.
