This research examined how organizations vet prospective and current personnel, respond to technological challenges, and design procedures to be as cost-effective and efficient as possible. The data collected reveals how, when, and why personnel are vetted for employment, while also taking into account the potential impacts of not vetting, or improperly vetting, personnel. The impacts can take the form of insider threats, negligent actions, and other negative events.
Based on our research, we assess organizations can improve hiring and retention practices through:
- a focus on ensuring cultural fit within the business unit and the overall organization,
- properly ordering and standardizing the process and
- implementing recurrent vetting.
