New Delhi, May 17 (PTI) Against the backdrop of the fake pilot scam shaking the aviation industry, companies in other sectors have woken up to the need of carrying out background verification of their new as well as existing employees.
Human resource officials of various companies are now cross-checking each and every detail of job applicants prior to hiring them.
The employee verification process includes finding out the genuineness of work experience, educational documents and whether the candidate has any criminal record or not.
"Corporates are certainly becoming more careful and cautious when they are recruiting for the middle and senior level positions. It is a fallout of a series of scams that have hit the country...Satyam scam, fake universities scam, 2G Scam, and the likes of it," said Kanthi D Suresh, Director of Konnexions HR Pvt Ltd.
