Many employers choose to perform background checks on potential employees before hiring, but are they really necessary? Absolutely. Pre-employment screenings can be the first line of defense to protect your company.
- Improved quality of new hires: When applicants know they will be screened, it acts as a filter so that the quality of potential new hires is improved.
- Safer work environment: With an improved quality of new hires also comes a safer working environment.
- Mitigate risk: Screenings also help reduce a business’s liability. For example, companies may require employees to handle dangerous equipment or have access to sensitive information. Background checks or drug screenings can help limit your risk exposure.
