The Benefits of Employee Background Checks

The numerous benefits of running a background check on your potential new hire certainly outweigh the costs involved. Without employee pre-screening, you run the risk of hiring illegal immigrants or just flat out poor-quality employees. Who wants to have to deal with massive headaches such as high worker turnover, workplace accidents, absenteeism, theft, or fraud? Running a background check can help alert you to issues that may arise in the future before they happen.

Comply with Regulations

When bringing in a new hire, employers face many state and federal guidelines. Along with the usual regulations like those for eligibility and discriminatory issues, some industries are up against industry-specific regulations for licensing and certifications. Running a background check can help protect your company from incurring steep fines, being placed on probation, or undergoing an audit.

Protect Current Employee Safety

Most background checks include drug testing and state and national criminal, credit, and sex offender searches. They can also find past instances of on the job fraud, negligence, theft, drug use, violence, and abuse. Choosing to run a background check before hiring an employee not only shows that your company is looking out for the safety and security of their current employees, but also can help protect your company from fines, costly litigation, and damage to your reputation.

Prevent Employee Turnover

One of the most common issues that companies resolve to correct is employee turnover. As an employer, you want your employees to be around for the long haul. Along with this comes the problem of hiring generally poor quality employees. Employee pre-screening will give your company insight as to the integrity of your potential new hire and can bring up past instances of negligent or improper behavior on the job or in their personal lives.
