If you ever look at a stock portfolio, there is usually a disclaimer that says past performance is not indicative of future success. Basically advisors do not want you to invest in something because you feel like it’s a sure thing, and then have you be disappointed later on. Employee background checks are saying the same basic thing when it comes to whom you hire.
Playing the stock market is riddled with risks- some are high with the promise of a great return, or great failure. Others are low risk with a steady expectation of gain, or they may turn out to be a dud and never fully rise to their potential. When you run employee background checks, you are looking for indicators of which job applicant is going to be a high or low risk.
Just like a stock, you should probably not judge their past behavior as a guarantee of future success. Some applicants with a clean history will end up stealing from you because they are suddenly faced with an unexpected financial debt. Others with a criminal past may have truly been rehabilitated, and are on the straight and narrow path now, never to falter again.
Pre employment screening is about having a base line to make those decisions. Is the applicant consistently employed or do they bounce from job to job every few months? Do they have multiple convictions or was it a one-time mistake? By tracking a stock over a longer period of time, we can see just how consistent it has been allowing us to decide whether to invest or not. Employee background checks help us to see the longer history of a person, and not just what the recent results have been.
