With so many companies making it blatantly obvious that the employees are an after thought, pre employment screening is frequently viewed as another company hoop to be jumped through. Maybe it is time we talk to our potential employees about the benefits that they will get from undergoing the employee background checks.
As business owners and managers, we are all aware of the benefits from low turnover, so we really should be presenting pre employment screening in the same context that we do vacation time, insurance, or 401K opportunities. In other words, these are benefits to and for the employee, not just a protection for the company. The more an employee feels like they are taken care of by the company, the longer they will want to stay and be engaged.
Make sure that they understand the effects of employee background checks, and more importantly the direct effect of not having them.
When you verify work history, you can discover large employment gaps or frequent job bouncing. Those employees can exhibit a serious lack of commitment to their job and their productivity. Not hiring those candidates help keep high employee morale as everyone is doing their share of the workload.
When you are validating education history, you are ensuring that other employees will not have to work double duty to compensate for the lied about skill and knowledge sets of a potential bad hire.
When you are able to weed out potentially dangerous or deceitful employees, you are creating a safer work environment for the employees who do make it past the initial screening.
