Eyes Wide Open with Employee Background Checks in Atlanta GA
Putting a new employee into a position of trust requires a giant leap of faith on the part of the employer. The employer deserves to know the facts about his new employee, facts that are frequently developed through employee background checks.
The employer will learn plenty about the employee after he is hired, but some of that education could come at a high price. Not only stealing thousands of dollars in cash and/or merchandise, but hundreds of thousands if he subjects the business to a negligent hiring or negligent retention lawsuit.
Employee background checks can alert the employer of any red flags or past history of illegal activities on the part of any potential employees, mitigating the risk of a dishonest employee, or one that may affect profit through poor performance, or one that may affect employee morale with a bad attitude.
Evidence of these things can be found through employee background checks.
Better to limit spend a little now on quality background checks than to pay a lot later in lost profits and the costs of recruiting a training yet another replacement after the employee show his true colors.
