If your employee decides to work for another company, we will investigate as part of the post-employment screening, whether he does not take along with him any secret information, customers or property.

For the processing of personal information, we strictly adhere to the Data Protection Act and other relevant legislation.
We often hear that companies and institutions screen future employees themselves. However, when we ask questions it appears that education and employment history are hardly checked. Reference checks are often omitted due to time constraints. And the times this check is done, often the questions that really matter are not asked. Most HR staff focus on the candidate’s skills, but often integrity issues remain neglected. Asking critical questions regarding the integrity is often experienced as difficult. One feels that this can harm a relationship of trust with the candidate, and therefore the necessary questions are often omitted.
Financial investigation is often omitted entirely, because it is difficult and feels uncomfortable. But be aware of the following: employees with financial problems report in sick more often, often work less efficiently and constitute an integrity risk to your organization.
A thorough online screening of candidates requires more than just checking Google and Facebook. The information found will have to be assessed correctly and searching in itself is elaborate and time-consuming.
Our process is designed as such that we scour the internet with specifically developed queries of approximately 700 negative keywords among others. This method saves time and proved very effective. Also, we use various degree registers and sources around the candidate, such as previous employers and other references.
A Certificate of Good Conduct (called “VOG” in the Netherlands) is often considered sufficient.
However, in practice these turn out to be easily provided. In 2014 703.860 Certificate of Good Conducts were requested, of which only 2,479 were rejected. This corresponds to only by 0.35% of all applications.
This is remarkably little, because Screenen.com has identified serious integrity risks in 2.4% of the tested applicants. None of these people had problems when applying for a Certificate of Good Conduct .
A Certificate of Good Conduct says something, but multiple sources are necessary to get more certainty about the behavior of the candidate in the past and predict his or her behavior in the future.
More and more employers check the background of the prospective employee before an employment contract is offered. The pre-employment screening can consist of one or more components which are considered to be of interest in the duties to be performed, depending on the desired job. Especially with positions leaning more on the integrity of the prospective employee (such as financial institutions or government) this is now part of the application process. Read more
