We are happy to admit we’re fans of a well-planned and constantly-updated company-screening policy. And that’s not just because screening makes good business sense. Background screening promotes better hiring practices, reduces employee turnover, and helps to produce higher quality work.
Why bother with running background checks?
Professional background screening makes a difference on plenty of levels. One of the most important reasons to pre-screen employees is company safety. Ignoring screening means deprioritizing safety and security.
Consider a recent headline about a couple in Danville who used an app to hire a dog walker. After seeing their dog act strangely–including vomiting blood–they reviewed their home surveillance system cameras and found the pet sitter to have been abusing the animal.
The couple blames the incident on the dog-walking service for failure to run continuous background checks.
Would a continuous background check have changed this story?
No one can know the answer to that question. But we do know that screening is one way companies can work toward making safety their top priority.
What is background screening all about?
Pre-employment screening isn’t just about hiring an ideal candidate for maximizing productivity. It’s also about looking for opportunities to offer safety and security for everyone involved—clients and employees.
We all know life doesn’t come with any guarantees. Unfortunately, HR staff cannot predict the future. But adding background checks means your company takes a proactive approach to safety. And partnering with ACUTRAQ means you’ll have a professional team to help with every step of the background screening process.
