There is a saying that goes” be slow to hire, and quick to fire” when it comes to hiring practices. All too often, businesses wait until the last possible second to hire replacement and additional staff. As a result, the employees are often not the highest quality; they are simply the employees who could fulfill the job requirements the fastest. Because of a need to hire quickly, pre employment screening is overlooked and not used to its fullest advantage.
When you take the time to hire slowly, you are putting your business in a much better position. You are being strategic instead of reactive. By anticipating hiring needs further in advance, you can stave off potential negatives that can affect your business such as decreased moral and subsequent productivity from overworked employees, and decreased customer satisfaction.
When you hire slowly, you have an opportunity to collect more job applications, thus widening the hiring pool to include a better range of qualifications and abilities. You are not limited to saying yes to only the first few applications that land on your desk. You now have the luxury to be able to say no to those applications, and wait for better applicants to apply.
Once you have found better applicants, you also have the luxury of time to wait for a pre employment screening to come back. Because you are not pressured by needing to have a position filled immediately, you can make sure that the applicant you do want is exactly who you think you are hiring.
