Research estimates that as much as half of all resumes and applications to a job contain fabricated or misleading background information. However, with our 360° digital screening, we eliminate unqualified candidates and candidates who have provided inaccurate information. That means less likelihood of having to lay off an individual later on. That means bringing down your costs, and saving time.
Most often, the costs can run into tens of thousands of dollars when you factor in the money spent hiring, the strain on your work culture that hurts productivity and work that needs to be redone. It’s not just about the time and money you can save but most importantly about business safety.
Your company’s growth requires talent. The Bactrak is positioned in such a way to assist you with your background screening needs in Asia and the Pacific region. The APAC region comes with a rich cultural diversity which makes it highly important to deal with screening processes with utmost sensitivity. Our expertise in language capabilities makes our sources feel comfortable sharing information with us.
We understand that the legal norms are region-specific, and our services fall well within the perimeter of compliance restrictions. Some of the screenings we offer in the Singapore region are:
Criminal records check via the court system and police are not publicly available for 3rd parties due to the privacy laws in Singapore. Bactrak utilizes a proprietary database to conduct a criminal search in Singapore.
We do a background check to find out compliance risks by underlining the individuals and organizations who are involved in bankruptcy, civil litigation, regulatory compliance and their online, print media as well as social media presence.
A bankruptcy search is also done by Bactrak, nationwide, through Singapore Public Trustee’s database. The report will give you details such as case type, file date, case number, name of court where case was filed, plaintiff, defendant and disposition, if a case can be located.
One of the most common areas where candidates fake information on their resume is education. Since you would require a background related to the open positions, many candidates may stretch their educational history in the hopes that you won’t check for discrepancies.
Now what if your HR manager ends up hiring someone who isn’t qualified for the job they applied for?
You don’t want that, do you? At Bactrak, we verify the educational background of a candidate by contacting the universities, community colleges, certification bodies, vocational schools, etc., to verify if all the information provided by the candidate is genuine.
To hire or not hire, that’s all you need to decide.
Job applicants fake their experience certificates to demand higher positions and salaries. Some individuals who get fired due to unprofessional behavior or bad performance choose to hide such information. You are morally obliged to ensure that your current employees are not harmed by new entrants who are incompatible.
Our digital solutions carry out a hassle-free verification procedure which can detect any false information provided by potential employees.
We thoroughly verify candidates’ NRIC/FIN number and validate their Singaporean identity.
A CBS Credit Score is a score given to an individual, between 1000 and 2000, where those scoring 1000 have the highest likelihood of defaulting on a payment, and those scoring 2000 have the lowest chance of reaching a delinquency status. At Bactrak, we analyse credit reports and CBS credit scores of candidates for any defaults in the past, giving a full picture of their financial standing.
Database check is conducted on individuals to find out whether – they have any criminal records, their names have ever appeared in any newspapers or periodicals, they were ever the Director of any company, they have been or are debarred by any government organizations, any law suit has been filed against them in any of the review courts, trial courts or special courts.
Serious and organized crime database, regulatory authority database, compliance authority database and web and media searches form an important part of database checks done by Bactrak. Organized Crime is one of the major factors in money laundering and its move into ‘legitimate’ business has seen a number of major corporations becoming involved in business dealings with such groups.
Serious and Organized Crimes database check uses a dataset which is comprised of individuals that have been arrested or are ‘wanted’ by Philippine National Police Force.
Regulatory authority database checks identify individuals who have been censored by financial regulatory authorities for regulatory breaches. It addresses the reputation, financial and legal risks an individual can bring to your company.
Compliance authority database identifies the list of persons prohibited by the Government. This dataset includes names of terrorists and international narcotics traffickers. It also includes individuals who have been named in legal documents and press reports as having aided the other terrorist outrages and those been responsible for serious violations of International Humanitarian Law.
Web and media search includes global news and articles from over 28,000 authoritative sources and websites which identifies individuals and entities associated with crimes of any nature such as civil, criminal, corruption, money laundering, serious and organized crime, terrorism etc. The sources cover news including archives for more than 200 countries covering regional publications. As the searches are done in real time, the results received are always dynamic.
