Strengthen Your Executive-Level Hiring Program with a Bishops Executive Hiring Report - September 10, 2014

Executives are the glue that hold a company together. They are the visionaries that can lead, inspire innovation, drive growth, and move your business forward. At least, that is what a good executive should be – someone you can trust with highly sensitive information and your most critical corporate responsibilities. But what happens when that trust is broken? When a seemingly perfect executive hire turns bad?

According to a 2014 PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Economic Crime Survey, of the 5,100 respondents from 99 countries, 45% of companies suffered fraud and that 58% of respondents reported that the fraud was committed by middle or senior management. Worse still, 26% of fraud was reportedly committed by CEOs or managing directors.

At the executive-level, there’s little room for error. The potential risk to a company’s bottom line and overall reputation is simply too high. In fact, according to the survey, 27% of companies lost between $50,000 and $1 million. That’s why, in-depth background screenings for executives are a critical HR recruiting deliverable.
