“Safety and security have always been top priorities in the workplace, especially in light of the recent tragedy in Newtown, CT with the deplorable actions of a lone gunman that resulted in the heartbreaking deaths of 20 innocent children and 6 adults” Connell said.

“People want certainty in their lives, and one way of predicting an individual’s future performance is their past behavior. What happens in the workplace mirrors what is happening in society, and to hiring managers, this is an area of concern, companies cannot afford to make a hiring mistake.”
