When you’re hiring someone to join your company or move into a home that you own, you want to be sure that that person is who they’re claiming to be. Indeed, it can affect your company negatively when you hire the wrong person. At best, they might be inefficient. At worst, they might end up embezzling funds or doing something else that will harm your company.
The same goes for tenants. When you lease your property to the wrong tenants, they might turn out to be loud and disruptive. Or, they might end up damaging your property or using it for purposes that it’s not meant for (such as running a business out of the residential property).
So there are a lot of things that can go wrong when you hire someone or get a new tenant. Thus, it’s very important to run background checks on someone before you let them into your company or your home.
Should You Go With a Larger Background Check Provider?
All background check providers are not the same. Larger background check providers will give you all the numbers you need at a cheap rate. However, they’re not necessarily going to have that personal touch. There won’t be anybody looking at these numbers and pointing out things that don’t look quite right or things that need to be looked into.
Larger background check providers will just give you the numbers, but they won’t give you an interpretation of the numbers. So it’s going to be up to you to figure out what they mean.
Should You Go With a Smaller Background Check Provider?
On the other hand, if you go with a smaller background check provider, you’ll find that there’s actually going to be a person at the other end of the line. So if you have any questions about the background check you received, you can ask that person and they’ll be able to clarify it for you. These people are used to reading background checks and they can tell you when someone looks suspicious and when someone looks above board.
There’s also the plain fact that talking to an individual is a lot more pleasant than just dealing with emails and automated messages.
