Is a Background Check Really Necessary?

Hiring an employee with a background check

Don’t hire someone who isn’t right for your company. Use a background check for your next hire!

Unfortunately, we live in a world where it is almost impossible to catch someone in a lie. With fake internet diplomas and certificates and even false identities, it doesn’t take much time for a criminal to infiltrate your business if they are determined to do so. So how can you protect your business from these people who wish to hurt it? By hiring AIR Pre-Hire to perform a background check and social security number check. These checks will allow you to throw away resumes of the people who are lying on their resume and to protect your business. Let’s take a look at why background checks are a necessity for business owners and hiring managers.

Creates a Safer Working Environment

When you hire someone without a background check, it could have terrible ramifications. These ramifications could not just affect your business but your employees and customers as well. You could be hiring someone with a history of substance abuse, someone with a criminal record, or even a sex offender without knowing it. But with a background check, you are keeping your employees, customers, and business safe.

Reducing Liability

If you are running a business where the employees have access to children, elderly people, hazardous materials, or sensitive information, it is important to know who you are hiring. If you end up hiring someone with a “checkered” past, this information or crimes could be traced back to your business. Screening new applicants should help you avoid hiring someone who could put your business in danger and reduce your business’s liability.

Increased Quality of New Hires

When a job applicant knows they may be screened for a position, it can work in your favor. The possibility of screening could act as a natural filter to keep people with records out of your pool of applicants. This works to improve the quality of applicants you have to choose from and helps you find employees who will suit your business far better.

Protecting your business, employees, clients, and the community as a whole should be your number one priority. So why aren’t you using AIR Pre-Hire’s background check service for your business? For more information, call AIR Pre-Hire today!
