Below are the final 2 of the top 5 reasons organizations aren’t regularly background screening new employees…

(False) Reason #4:  Background Screening Is Difficult

We really hear this a lot.  That’s because many businesses think it’s up to them to do the background screening legwork. 

While it’s true that they need to do some of the paperwork, we’ve taken the brunt of the tough stuff off their shoulders.  That way, they can focus on what they need to do and get their background screening results back fast.

(False) Reason #5:  Background Screening Is Only for Big Companies

Oh, boy.  This is a huge fallacy that we’d like to put to rest right now.

Background checks are for every company of every size.  Period.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a teeny tiny business or a large one.  Having someone on staff who hasn’t been properly (and thoroughly) background screened is dangerous.

So is there any reason not to background check?  We don’t think so.  And believe us — we’ve seen it all! 

To protect yourself, you need to be careful about who you hire.  And background screening should always be part of the equation.
