Assessing Honesty and Integrity of Job Applicants
Everest Turyahikayo, Member
A major challenge facing employers today is identifying qualified job candidates with the preferred level of honesty and integrity.
Is there a method or are there any criteria to assess and measure such traits?

Assessing Job Applicants
David Wilson, Premium Member
Hi Everest, when I consider a job candidate for a position, I use 'behavioral interviewing' to assess their qualifications and experience.
I also check formal references (i.e. past supervisors/managers) and I verify academic qualifications by directly contacting the educational institution. For positions dealing with vulnerable individuals (i.e. children), I have used 'criminal record checks' to ensure risk is minimized.
Professional organizations will also test for professional knowledge and a code of standard/ethics. Regards, David.

Hi Everest, these are very important traits but very difficult to assess indeed. No doubt that for this reason we need peer evaluations about the candidate or track records upon his/her work ethics instead of giving personality assessment tools. Regards, elmira.

Hi Everest, well answered by David, I consider important the psychological test and to be very exhaustive according to the position using polygraph test. Regards, Mariano.
Hola Everest, además de lo usado por David, considero importante el examen psicológico y siendo más exhaustivos de acuerdo al puesto usar la prueba del polígrafo. Saludos, Mariano.
