In an ideal world, a candidate, as well as an employer, would divulge all their credentials accurately and correctly. However, the world of business and hiring is far from ideal! This results in mismatched expectations and wrong hires.

The cost of hiring an unfit candidate tends to be extremely high – in terms of resources expended as well as the organizational safety. Thus, it is integral that proper verification and checks are carried out, before closing any recruitment opening – to ensure the hire is absolutely genuine and suitable.
