Continual Background Screening
As a boss it is perfectly okay to trust your employees, especially when you have known them for a long time. In fact, if you can’t trust the employees that you have worked for you for some time then there is probably something wrong with you. Of course, it’s not a perfect science, but when you have employees that you have known for years, especially when you run a small business that only has a handful of employees; you should trust them to not only run your business correctly, but also stay out of trouble on the outside. With that said, though, you aren’t always able to interact with all of your employees on a daily basis. While it’s good to trust, it’s better to know, which is why it’s always good to do employment background checks on your new employees, but also to have a policy to perform continual background screening on all current employees. It’s not an invasion of privacy; it’s just making sure that your employees are upholding the standards that you have set.
Most employers do some sort of a background check when they hire employees for a job. Typically these background checks will show a prior arrest record, as well as any major financial issues that are worth noting. It’s not just about making sure that you don’t hire a murderer; it’s about making sure that you hire someone you can trust. If you find out that someone has three DUI arrests on their record you pretty much know that they aren’t reliable enough to be working at your business. Ditto if employment background checks show that they have drug arrests, or have massive amounts of debt they have been running from.
There are some companies out there who do employment background checks once every six months and a lot can change in six months. And while you hope that an employee will come clean about any issues they come up against, you also need to make sure that you have only the best working at your company. This isn’t just about making sure that your employees treat your customers well, but also that your other employees are safe. The last thing that you want is someone who has had four domestic violence reports in the last six months working on your staff.
