Pre-employment Screening

Pre-employment screening is an important part of the recruitment process. It is widely used by organisations to ensure that the most suitable candidate is selected for the job. Pre-employment screening assesses a potential employee’s ability to meet the inherent physical and/or psychological demands of a specific work position. Screening can also be used for current employees in the event of a change in work duties such as a promotion, transfer or re-structure.

Research has shown that the use of pre-employment screening is 4 times more useful than interviewing for recruitment and promotion. Pre-employment Screening helps avoid the expense of recruiting the wrong person. It is a selection tool that is suitable for high level executive positions right through to labouring positions.
