Even before they see the results from a pre-employment screening, many hiring managers look at a few very important things when they review applications.
They look to see if this is someone with the skill set required for the position. They look to see if this is someone that might have some longevity with their company; reducing turnover costs.
As small business owners, we are the hiring managers. There is rarely payroll for someone other than us to be a hiring manager. As such, we need to determine what our end game is going to be for this employee. This is where we can take a hint from the hiring managers. We need to look at the long-term effects that hiring a specific applicant will have on us.
All too often we tend to hire the disposable employee. We need a position filled quickly. We can no longer wait for the perfect applicant to show up, we simply pick the best from what we have. “The Best” being very subjective.
When we do not hire an employee with the intention of training them properly, growing and motivating them to be promoted later, or even just to be a quality employee, we are starting a vicious cycle.
These are the applicants who will eventually cost us more money than they are worth. We may have bypassed the pre-employment screening in our rush to get them hired. As a result, we have the potential for dishonest or physically aggressive employees to be working in our stores
