Many companies, especially small businesses have no financial budget for workplace accidents. As a result, even a single accident can cause financial devastation. It is just one of many reasons why employee background checks are a useful tool in a store’s overall profitability.
Who would you rather have working for you? Someone who is responsible and alert? Or, someone who is reckless with themselves and others? Yep, someone who is responsible is the ideal employee. Conducting pre-employment screening is a good way to decipher if an applicant is responsible.
If someone has been in criminal, financial or legal trouble, they have been reckless with themselves. For whatever reason, they did not hold themselves to a higher standard. By comparison, someone who has stayed out of trouble has been more responsible for themselves and their actions.
If a future employee has not proven to be responsible for themselves, why would we believe that they would miraculously be responsible with others? An extension would be that they might not be diligent in protecting the store, the customers, and the other employees from accidents.
That means you might put your store at a higher risk for these unbudgeted expenses by employing higher risk applicants. By conducting an employee background check you have a better chance of determining if an employee will help facilitate a safe working environment. Remember, if they can control and manage themselves, they are more likely to control and manage their surroundings at work.
