Background Blues: On Background Checks

Posted On 12:31 PM by Andrew Calvillo |

Hiring an employee is no simple feat; businesses want to be completely sure that the guy they're getting is the perfect fit for the job. Employers, therefore, conduct interviews, aptitude tests, and other screening methods to determine the potential worth of an applicant. One of the most important of these screening procedures is the so-called background check.

No company ever wants to end up with an employee with a bad history or, heaven forbid, a criminal record. After all, it can be quite unsettling for customers to learn that a business has a crook under its employ. Whether the newly hired person is wanted for several charges or has been blacklisted by his previous employer, such details can spell trouble for any business. As such, companies have to carry out detailed background checks and thereby ascertain the track record of a particular applicant before hiring him.

While a company’s human resources department typically takes care of all employee background checks, smaller businesses may not have that kind of capability. To that end, they can hire another company that specializes in fact checking and records retrieval. This not only spares businesses from the effort of having to go through the records of a particular individual, but also saves them a lot of money since they don't have to hire additional HR staff for such a task.
