Using a Background Check as part of the hiring process can help eliminate some of the waste.
A good Background Check will help you in two basic ways. It will save you money and time. Advertising costs will be reduced by eliminating the need to re-post a position due to making an initial “bad hire”. You will also save the time it takes to train what turns out to be an unqualified or unsafe candidate.
Reasons to Conduct a Background Check:
A pre-employment background check can not only save you money in the long run, it can protect your business. If your employees come into direct contact with your customers, and cause harm to a customer, then your business can be held liable if that employee has a criminal record. A background check can also provide insight into an individuals behavior, character and integrity.
Which types of background check should you conduct? There are several background checks that you can consider. Criminal records checks should be conducted on every employee no matter the size of the operation. Verify ones personal information supplied. If one should lie or provide misleading information, then they will have the mind set to steal, cheat and create problems within your company. At a minimal, criminal record checks and background screening should be accomplished. If part of the new employee’s job calls for driving a company car or transporting other employees or goods, then it is recommended that a driving history also be conducted.
