- Satisfy the need for professional customised personnel information,
- Build long-term relationships based on mutual trust and client satisfaction; and to
- Povide consistent superior financial returns for all stakeholders.
Effective pre-employment screening is the most powerful preventative tool against dishonesty in the work force. Other than putting applicants through a pre-employment lie detection test, the most effective way of evaluating a prospective employee is by studying their employment history.
Previous Employment History
It is a well-known fact that an applicant, who has been dismissed by his/her previous employer, will be inclined to omit such details from his/her application form. Employers are also reluctant to furnish sensitive information on any employees who have been dismissed and to provide the reasons for the dismissal, to any person. However, during our research we have established that most of the respondents consulted would submit such information to an independent entity.
By studying a person's employment history, a number of facts can be established such as:
- Business nature of previous employers.
- Period of employment with each employer.
- Positions occupied at each previous employer.
- Nature of work performed.
- Reasons furnished to the employer on resignation, which often differ from the reasons furnished on the application form.
- Is the previous employer prepared to re-employ the person who has left his/her employment on his/her own accord and if not, why not?
One must also bear in mind that a person who applies for a position would almost, without fail, leave out any information on his/her application form that could decrease his/her chances of getting the job. Therefore, your most accurate information will be that obtained from previous employers. Any false information furnished on an application form for employment or information deliberately omitted is a reflection of the applicant's honesty and future intentions.
Fingerprint Taken on Paper
The candidate goes to any Police Station to get his fingerprints taken. The original document plus a copy of his ID gets send to MDC. Mdc will take it to the Criminal Record Centre for verification. The results obtained will be a 100% accurate. The process will take 4-6 weeks.
Electronic Fingerprint Reader
A workstation programmed and with a Livescan fingerprint reader, captures ten fingerprints and demographic data of an applicant. The workstation uploads data to AFISwitch via internet connection. AFISwitch transmits the data directly to the SAPS AFIS sub-system for identification purposes.
On completion of a fingerprint search, the SAPS AFIS returns a hit /no hit result to AFISwitch. The info is then transferred to MDC.
In the case of a No Illicit activity identified report, MDC can provide the client with the report immediately.
In the case of a possible illicit activity identified report, the SAPS will further process the search and supply the required details regarding the illicit activity identified result. The process can take up to 4 to 6 weeks.
Consumer Credit Verification
From the information obtained from a consumer credit bureau, it is easy to determine how well a person manages his/her own finances. Indications of mismanagement or over-commitment could increase the risk potential of an applicant. An illegal means of supplementing his/her income may become an attractive option if an applicant is in financial difficulties. As we are on link with 2 established credit bureaus feedback in this regard is available within 24 hours after receipt of the request, depending on the number of requests.
Driver's License Verification
We could assist you to verify the validity of an applicant's driver's license. This is essential if an applicant is applying for employment e.g. a transport driver.
Educational Qualification Verification
On your behalf we will contact any national as well as international educational institution to verify the qualifications provided by an applicant. MDC has established links with the Central Certification Council, provincial Departments of Education (Certification Section) to verify National Senior Certificates issued. During the past seven years MDC has established valuable links with various universities in the USA, Australia, Canada, UK, Africa and Europe.
