Information On Backgrounds And People Checks

Why do a background check? The advantages of complete employment background screening include: improved applicant and new employee quality, decreased office violence, decreased negligent hiring liability, reduced losses from employee dishonesty, making the correct hire the first time, and avoiding negative publicity.

The first advantage of background checks that most people see is an improvement in applicant quality. We frequently hear from our new clients that they saw an near immediate improvement in the quality of applicants once the word got out that they were conducting complete background checks. A complete employee screening structure:

    • Starts in fewer applications with serious discrepancies
    • Shields applicants who are trying to hide something
    • Increases applications from applicants who want to work in a safe environment
    • Improves the quality of new hires due to an better applicant pool and fresher selection process

The bottom line is that background checks help an organization be more successful in their hiring. That means greater revenue for entities and bigger impact for the salary stream. Complete and total background checks help employers:

    • Decrease the high cost of turnover by screening in employees who stay longer.
    • Reduce losses from employee theft, employee fraud, drug and alcohol abuse, absenteeism, office violence, and litigation.
    • Avoid wasted benefits and insurance policy.
    • Reduce employee training costs.
    • Increase productivity through hiring employees with better work habits, attitudes, policies, and practices.
    • Improve professionalism by screening for desirable workplace attitudes.
    • Decrease insurance costs. Some insurance companies will handout background check or drug-screening discounts to businesses who take such precautions.
