Pre employment screening is designed to weed out the bad hires before they get past the interviewing process. What we often overlook as hiring managers and owners is the far reaches of a bad employee. The costs that one employee can incur to your business can be potentially devastating.
In the most common ways, employee can cause inventory losses. They can steal, defraud, or simply be so oblivious to policy and procedure; they cause losses through their negligence and inattentive behaviors.
These financial implications create a tangible loss in your inventory, and an increase to your merchandise costs due to repurchasing your inventory to satisfy necessary stock levels.
The next level of damage comes in less tangible ways. A bad apple employee can create devastating issue with morale. The worse your employees feel, the less productive they become, and the more they turn off customers who will go some place else to shop.
Once it starts, it is difficult and can sometimes take years or massive employee turnover to remedy. Costing you money in lost sales and increased training costs for rehires. It also takes away your productive time as you are spending more time dealing with employee issues.
Are you innovative or have proprietary advantages? Don’t think you are invulnerable to this sort of attack. Restaurants that have a “secret sauce” have had employees steal the recipe so they can copy it or sell it for their own profit eliminating the proprietary advantage the company once had.
Understanding that these employees can ultimately ruin a business beyond repair puts a pre employment screening in perspective from a financial viewpoint.
