Don’t Cut Corners
Being the owner of a business, CEO or HR manager is a very important responsibility. After all, if you do not send out a good quality product to your customers, they are not going to come back to you the next time they would like to place an order. The product that you send out the door is just as important as the people that you have working on your behalf. Because of this, it is extremely important to do pre employment background checks. It would be a shame to put your complete trust in a particular employee only to discover that they had a history of bad behavior.
For instance, you would never want to trust someone with the financial portion of your business if they had been convicted of theft. This is only one of many reasons why it is important to do a complete screening on all employees before you agree to hire them. If you are the owner of a day care, you obviously would not want to hire a child molester to do your babysitting for you.
There are a number of different resources that are willing to help you to take care of pre employment background checks. There is no reason why any employer should go about doing something such as this on their own. After all, there are outside companies, like us, who are willing to take care of the screening for you. It is also going to be a wise idea to have a drug test ran on any potential employees. Of course, after the initial screening, it is important to keep up on employees by doing continual criminal search while the employees still work for you.
Many employers get overwhelmed when it comes time to hire help. Therefore, they look for an outside resource that can help them with pre employment background checks. Owning a business is a very important responsibility. When we hire people off of the street to work for us, we are putting our business in their hands. It is very important to make a wise decision about the people whom we choose to do business with.
I complete background check dosen’t stop at just doing a criminal database search. Some employers think this is good enough but in reality it isn’t even close. Don’t get me wrong, it is important to do a criminal database search using the good databases. These databases include all the sex offender registries and the vast majority of the criminal records in the united states but there are holes in databases. Because of these holes you should always run the applicants address history and follow that up with county specific criminal searches in the counties of where they have lived. This way you can trust that the records, if any, are coming from the best source which is the county. It is very important also to consider verifying with applicants previous employers of their history with them. There are many different components to a good background check and isn’t it worth it to cut corners.
