We all know that William Shakespeare said that a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet. Clearly Mr. Shakespeare didn’t work for a background check company. Any reputable background checks expert will tell you that when it comes to background checks and pre employment screening, not everyone with different names are roses.
I worked a rather large internal case a few years back. We flew in our corporate Loss Prevention Managers to help us out. One of the first things they did was to run a name and address verification on this employee. It was a similar protocol to what they had done when they had previously worked for a background check company.
The amount of information they could pull was staggering. It listed every place this employee had lived for the last ten years, including other occupants listed at the same address. To our surprise, this employee had been living with another one of our employees. Not only was this a clear policy violation, but it also opened up a whole new door to the investigation.
These guys really were background check experts in my book. The background check they did gave us a new employee to investigate that we may not have caught otherwise. Based on this new information, we were able to investigate and resolve close to $100,000 in losses over the previous five years they had been employed at our company. Had we done this sort of pre employment screening to begin with, the employee would not have been hired to begin with.
