Implementing an Employee Re-Screening Process

Promoting employees from within is a great practice. It often saves your company time and money when you promote trusted, long-time current employees rather than taking the time to update a job description, post an ad, and interview and screen new applicants. However, many employers (nearly 53%) do not choose to re-screen their current employees before increasing their responsibilities or moving them to a new vacant position. Annual re-screening, especially if you are considering moving an employee to a new position, is highly recommended in order to ensure safety and reduce risk within your work environment.

Why Isn’t an Initial Background Check Enough?

You probably had a background check ran on your employees before they started their employment with your company. Everything checked out just fine then, so why would you spend extra money now to just have the same thing re-done? The truth is, that background check may have covered them for their current job responsibilities, but it may not if their responsibilities are increasing. For example, you may be promoting your employee to a position that requires managing company finances. Have you ever had a credit check done on them? Imagine promoting them, then finding out they have been convicted of credit card fraud in the past. It’s a nightmare that annual employee re-screening can help you to avoid.

What Has Your Employee Been up to in the Last Year?

AIR Pre-Hire recommends annual re-screening for all of your employees. Although it’s easy to drift into a false sense of security when you see the same people every day, some of whom you’ve known for years, you may not be totally aware of the person they are outside of the workplace. Have they been arrested or gone to court for a crime in the past year? Are they on probation? Have they gotten into any accidents or gotten any traffic tickets? A lot can happen in the course of a year. AIR Pre-Hire will review your employees’ criminal history, credit history, and driving record. We feel so strongly about the importance of annual re-screening that we offer this service to you at a 25% discount to encourage continued safety in the workplace.
