Pre employment screening that goes beyond a simple reference check can uncover some crazy situations that you might have never thought possible. Before you become a target for organized retail crime, do a little extra research before you make a hiring decision. Better yet, hire a background check company to do the digging for you.
A reputable background check company should have the ability to decipher data that might lead to other questionable things the employee is trying to hide.
A criminal history, as well as a pre employment screening involving previous addresses or acquaintances might show that this employee is associated with gangs, mafia, or other known criminals.
While not all employees are going to be criminals just because they associate with other criminals, many are looking for jobs at specific stores that the crime ring needs an insider.
If they get one of “their guys” hired at your stores, it will be infinitely easier for them to steal, rob and defraud you. If they have to try and convince one of your honest employees to help them out, their time and resources are spent recruiting an unknown, who may turn them in, instead of profiting from their deceit.
Do not be fooled into thinking that just because you are giving someone a paycheck, his or her loyalties lie with you. If these employees are working for a crime ring, their loyalties are actually with the ring that has put them in your store. The fact that you are paying them to steal from you is their bonus, but one that a background check company can potentially help you avoid.
