There is a lot of risk when hiring a new employee. There are numerous areas that a small business can fall flat on its face if it is not careful in selecting those who are fit to be employees of a particular business. Thus, proper risk management techniques are a must when hiring on new workers.
Zeroriskhr.com discusses a number of ways in which a business may be taking on too much risk in hiring including the following scenario:
Too many hiring decisions are made out of desperation. The following scenarios occur repeatedly: a key manager quits and must be replaced NOW; rapid growth forces a company to fill positions without enough forethought; programmers are so scarce that anyone will do.
This is a huge problem that people run into when they are in the hiring process. Deciding to skip over a background check can be a costly mistake though. Even those who appear to be the most squeaky clean candidates for the position could always have some hidden skeletons in their closet. It is impossible to know until a proper background check has been run on the individual.
Proper background screenings can look for more than just previous criminal activity. There are things on any resume that may be falsified. A background screening can check for some of these things like:
- Educational Accomplishments
- Licenses and Certifications
These are just a few of the matters that a business may want to know about their potential hire before inviting them on board to join the company. It is only fair that a company know as much as possible about the people they are entrusting with their future growth.
