The Challenge in Finding Qualified Employees

Why Is Applicant Screening So Important?


Applicant screening helps determine if the candidate possesses the right knowledge, skills and experience to proceed to the next phase of the recruiting process.  Too often, companies invest considerable time and money only to find out their efforts have been wasted to:


  • the candidate failing to meet minimum hiring requirements

  • falsified or inaccurate documentation

  • security licence expired or invalid

  • first aid certification expired, invalid or incomplete

  • suspended driver's licence

The Real Cost of Hiring


Collecting, sorting and screening applications and resumes is not only time consuming and frustrating, but it can be a very expensive process.  It is estimated that to screen and interview one security employee, it can cost a minimum of $350-400. That typically includes:


  • receipt and processing of documents

  • sorting, filing and pre-screening

  • administrative support (ie. emails, phone calls)

  • initial contact and phone pre-screening

  • document collection and verification

That does not include the cost of

Negative Impacts affect your business operations and can jeopardize your insurance and security licence.
