We all have a comfort zone. It starts at our house. That is where we can kick back, relax and be ourselves. We create our own little environments perfectly suited to our desires and tastes.
Once we have our home territory in satisfactory mental comfort, we start to move on. We have secondary territories that turn out to be an extension of our homes. These are places like a familiar restaurant, a good friend or even a relative’s home, or our workplaces where we start to settle in and start to create those same comfort zones.
This is when I often start to hear important pieces of information regarding my associates. They get comfortable at work, just like they do at home, and they start to talk. They discuss their relationships, finances, and off the record shenanigans.
It has been more than once that I have opened up employee theft investigations based off of information spilled in the comforts of the employee break room. Sadly, some of those suspicions were substantiated.
I don’t always get to see the full extent of the background checks that were run before they were hired on to the company. I do get to see them after the case is starting to come to a close.
Because we don’t hire background check experts to review the background checks, some of the potential red flags that I do see had gone unnoticed.
Maybe the background check experts would have caught onto a detail we overlooked, and would have prevented us from hiring that person who ended u stealing from us.
