Continuous Screening Examinations
Once the right employees have been selected, the continuous screening examinations can monitor for any potential criminal or unethical activities that can be detrimental to your company, your employees or your clients. The examinations are designed based on - and implemented to cater for the specific individual circumstances in which the employees operate to not only monitor for occurring criminal or illegal activities, but also to act as a deterrent for such activities.
We recognize however that deterrence and monitoring are only two cogs in the great operation of any company and instead we strive to use the integrity assessment tools at our disposal to create and foster a culture of integrity in your business. This redirects the focus from fear inducing negative reinforcement methods to more uplifting and inspiring positive reinforcement methods.
These screening examination can be conducted using polygraph examinations or the Converus EyeDetect system. This examination can be scheduled to occur on a pre-determined time-frame ranging from once every three months to once a year. As employees are aware that they will be undergoing polygraph examinations, this program acts as an effective deterrent for criminal or unethical activities. The examinations can be combined with a rewards based program to create a positive atmosphere and a whistle-blower program to assist employees to participate in the fight against crime. Part of the program entails employees giving their opinion regarding the safety and security at the company, which creates an inclusive atmosphere where everyone is working together to create a culture of integrity.
We spend fortunes building fences, mounting cameras, training guard dogs and installing alarms and yet we fail to adequately scrutinize and attend to the very people whom we trust to maintain these systems essential to our well being. Lest we forget, all security systems are on some level or another based on human trust, so is it not our responsibility to create and maintain a culture of integrity that will foster this very trust and encourage responsibility and respect? This is the foundation for the continuous screening examinations and integrity management program.
