The Small Business Administration is an organization designed with the specific intention of assisting and guiding small businesses towards better longevity and profitability. They have many programs on a wide range of topics, including pre employment screening and employee background checks.
Employee background checks are highly recommended by the Small Business Administration. They realize that one of the most important factors in a small business’s success is its ability to hire and retain quality employees.
If a small business hires improperly, their chance of success are drastically reduce. A “bad” employee can do unending damage to a business. When customer service is lacking, the company’s image is hurt. Customer’s stop coming in, and word of mouth takes care of any remaining customers who may have contemplated shopping with you.
A step up from bad customer service is bad employee morale. Ever heard the phrase “one bad apple spoils the whole bunch”? It rings very true in retail. An employee that shows up late to work, doesn’t pull their weight, or disregards policy and procedure brings everyone down. Time is spent correcting their actions and playing damage control with the rest of the “good apples”.
These employee infractions can pale in comparison to the damage an employee can do if they are stealing from you. These employees can still turn away customers and fellow employees, in addition to causing financial disaster from cash theft, credit card fraud or inventory theft.
For these reasons, the Small Business Administration strongly encourages pre employment screening and employee background checks to reduce the likelihood of hiring a bad employee.
