You hire a new employee with the intention that they will be proficient in their job after an introductory training period. Once they are up and running, they should be able to complete the assigned tasks of their job description within an allotted time period that maximizes your productivity and subsequent payroll goals. If this hire is unproductive, or even worse begins to alienate customers, you will begin to decrease the leverage you might once have had by hiring this employee. You are now beginning to lose money by having them work for you. That’s why you want to conduct pre-employment screening or hire a background check company to assist you with this before you hire someone.
Pre-employment screening helps to reduce these incurred costs by reducing the likely hood of hiring a bad employee from the beginning. A background check company is a useful resource. Unfortunately, you can’t just terminate an employee without warning for poor job performance. If they commit an unforgivable act like theft or violence, then, legally, you can take a different course of action, but that is an exception.
You have to have a disciplinary action plan where they are given the opportunity to find out that they are not fulfilling the required expectations of the job, and are given an action plan and time frame to complete their turn around. This action plan may be repeated up to three or four times before the employee can be let go. In the mean time, you will continue to suffer losses from this employee.
Pre-employment screening will give you insight into an employee’s previous work history and work habits before you make the mistake of hiring them.
