Background checks represent the go-to method most organizations use to screen out unethical employees. But due to a growing number of problems, this system has started to fail employers.

Russ Law and Yariv Lis, co-founders of Verensics, are on the show this week.

In this episode, they explain the broken system behind background checks and why this technique fails to screen out problematic workers.

Expect to learn why companies have no incentive to report workplace incidents, the importance of talking about ethics upfront in the interview process, the mistake almost all hiring managers make that can cost their organizations millions, how to set up a structured interview to screen out unethical employees, the best indicators that a candidate will be successful in their new role, and much more.
