Fourth force, a Chennai-based tech start-up looking to create an impact on the Background Investigation industry, launched an application to help corporates, commercial and domestic sectors in making the best choice while recruiting people.
Dr Saleem Ali, chairman and MD, Fourth Force said that the chances of people bluffing in their work qualification is close to 47%. Moreover, he said that there are close to 3,000 fake colleges which results in the corporate sectors loosing a lot of money. Jayaprakash, founder of the Agni group of companies and the promoter of Fourth Force said this start-up came at a point when the Uber case happened in Delhi. “What happened in recent times, is due to lapses in background verification systems which most companies should do when they recruit people,” he said and went on to say that with former policemen in their ranks they look to take diligence to a whole new level. “Over the years this could bring a drastic change across all industries,” he added.
Speaking at the launch of the programme, Nalli Kuppuswami Chetti, the chief guest at the event, spoke about the challenges that come with expanding companies. “The increased staffing needs in this century is different from what it was when my company started. Background checking is required in these times when there is a continuous change in the business landscape. Fourth Force has a presence in over 30 states across the country and it has made technology an important part of its background checking process.
