Are resumes always an accurate reflection of a candidate’s education and employment history? It seems not. More than one in five background checks on candidates in Asia identified inaccuracies, according to HireRight, a rate almost three times higher than the global average. But there is some good news: the increasing use of employment checks is not only helping catch the cheats, but also deterring candidates from misrepresenting their employment histories. HireRight found inaccuracies in 21.5 percent of background checks conducted in APAC last year, down from 29 percent the previous year. Some discrepancies were minor, but among the cases of genuine errors were instances of outright fraud.
