The paper makes the case for integrity assessments and proves financial and brand image rewards await those who integrity test and assess. The paper also provides a due diligence methodology for any organization to make an informed pre-employment assessment selection.

“Thought leaders, regardless of their role within an organization, need to understand the benefits of integrity testing including an improved bottom line through reductions in workers compensation costs and employee turnover. The evidence supporting integrity testing is undeniable. Employers who integrity test qualify applicants will realize very measurable financial and other valuable benefits,” said Johnson
