Using Polygraph Services For Employee Interviews

This is a common occurrence here at D&K Investigators as many of our valued clients simply can't afford to hire the wrong people. Often this stems from the sensitive or classified work of large corporations we deal with - but are just an important for the likes of local supermarkets for example, where integrity is equally paramount.

Let's take a look at how any organisation can utilise polygraph services effectively during the employment process, and how it can benefit both in the short and long term.

Conducting interviews

Throughout the world it is surprisingly common for prospective employees to lie on their CVs and put down fraudulent qualifications, employment histories and more. This can become a big problem for employers as, once an employee is actually hired, it can be very difficult to dismiss an employee. This is apart from other dangers and compromised work standards. So many people all around the world utilise polygraph services during this time to ensure that the prospective employees are in fact telling the truth about what is stated on their CVs. This specialised testing also gives insight when more advanced questions are asked and saves companies in time, money and heartache down the line.

Further benefits to employers

Polygraph services are unfortunately not entirely reliable by themselves. Although, when a trained professional is in command, asking the right questions and carefully observing subtle reactions they can reveal invaluable and dependable insight. This can be in relation to: reasons for getting fired from previous jobs; criminal records that the person is trying to hide; as well as many more factors such as addictions; dependencies and aversions that may affect one or more tasks they will be responsible for.

This can help you hire only the best employees that you can trust to be reliable, hard-working and value-adding in their roles. What's more is that polygraph services can strengthen the mutual trust of an employee and employer relationship by providing a clear understanding of what both parties expect from each other - right from the onset.

So next time you're looking at hiring new talent, consider polygraph services to ensure that the help you hire is credible and suitable. Contact us today for more details about these and many more excellent services that we offer here at D&K Investigators.
