Here are 4 reasons why:
1. Workplace Safety
Everyone deserves a safe place to work and as an employer, avoiding workplace conflicts and threats is a priority. This includes the prevention and control of the hazard of workplace violence. Job candidates bring their best to the table at the interview, but it is hard to be sure what their behavior will be in certain situations once they are settled into the workplace. A background investigation can help employers discover whether a person has a history of violence, harassing, or inappropriate actions.
2. Criminal Background
An essential part of a background investigation is identifying if the individual may be dangerous, unreliable, untrustworthy, or otherwise unsuitable for hiring. You may discover they have minor, out of date, or irrelevant charges, but it is still something you should be aware of.
3. Education & Employment Verification
We all hope employees never lie to us, especially on the employment application. Unfortunately, history has shown that it happens. One of the most frequent places it occurs is on the highest level of education achieved and employment experience portions of the employment application. Verifying an applicant’s education and employment is always a good thing to do.
4. Bottom Line
Every employer wants his/her organization to have a good reputation. Having just one unchecked employee can spoil that. Conducting background investigations on employees helps identify potential threats and gives your company peace of mind knowing it has accomplished its due diligence in securing a safe and secure work place for all employees. Additionally, it relieves stress knowing you have completed everything to ensure your employees are properly skilled and trained for their positions.
