In South Africa, especially, we constantly require assistance in fighting crime and trying to recover our losses.
When there are specific suspects, or all your staff are under suspicion, then Lie Detetion tests can be a very valuable tool in either identifying the culprits or identifying those who know more about the situation/case than they are letting on. Once this is determined, your investigations can then be steered in the right direction or a new direction should no one be impicated.
Ofcourse with our human track record, this is also a main focus where partners/spouses want the truth when cheating is suspected. These cases, as all of them are handled delicately and confidentially.
Rather than this reactive approach of only testing employees when something has gone wrong, consider using integrity testing as an integrated strategy to managing your employee's ethics.
Integrity testing in the workplace has been used for more than three decades in other countries. In fact, it was developed when using lie detectors was prohibited in the US. In South Africa, the demand for integrity testing in employee management has grown.
Probably the best benefit of integrity testing is that this test will measure the suitability of a candidate for a position.
Knowing that their integrity is being tested and validated is a positive experience for an employee as it creates:
People typically know or have at least heard, of the analysis instrument called a polygraph. At a very general level, the polygraph is used to tell whether somebody is lying. However, the truth (excuse the pun) is that the Polygraph, and the VSA, is able to pick up much more subtle changes in behaviour or reactions in an individual, and this data can be used to make important decisions.
On average it is found that lie detections are 97% accurate. Where a clear outcome is not evident, tests are re-done.
It is also found that the mere fact that people believe or understand from Lie Detection Testing that the software will indicate or detect their lies, can also be a deterrent not to lie during interrogation. With Lionel Strong Lie Detections and Investigations, 30 years of experience in this field as a specialist, is also added to ensure that no mistakes are made.
