After you are through with all the processes that are necessary to do business you are about to open your doors to the public.
You have gone a step further and asked for qualified people to apply for the openings in your organization. The applications have arrived in your mailbox in droves from seemingly qualified persons.
Sifting through the CVs you are now left with a list of potential candidates which you will need to interrogate further. In many cases you will find that most of the applications are riddled with exaggerations.
On your own it is almost impossible to pinpoint red flags in the applications. A comprehensive solution will be offered by an external provider by putting in place a program to enable background screening.
One of the aspects of the prospective employee that is looked into is his criminal history. Such a check has the ability to find about the character of the person wishing to be hired. A court may have not been able to prove a case against thereby clearing him.
In both scenarios the information that has been brought to your attention will determine the decision you make. Having that information with you gives you bigger leverage on how to handle him if you eventually decide to hire him.
The importance of performing a background verification on a candidate’s credit history can’t be overlooked. If he is deployed in positions that are financially related this revelation is essential.
The driving records of the applicant are essential considerations to look into. The check will seek to find out if he had been accused of road related issues. This is more important if his work may involve driving.
As an employer you can be on the receiving end of the effects of non-disclosure of the driving history of the applicant. There could be a history of your employee have been convicted of a charge of driving when he had been drinking. You will bear the responsibility for any liability that results from an accident he causes while in your employment.
Intent on being hired an applicant can exaggerate about his competence on the job at hand. Normally it would be hard to know the true state of affairs.
When a background check is obtained you are able to unmask him. Unsafe applicants are eliminated from the workplace thereby ridding the place of potential threats.
Eventually you rest assured that you have the right people for your job. The proper staffing process undertaken will help grow your business.
