How You Treat Employees Could Translate to the Kind of Employees You Get

If you’ve been wondering exactly why all your interviewees seem to come back with terrible background screening reports, you may want to look internally rather than externally for answers.

At many companies, the real focus shouldn’t be that applicants are awful; in fact, it’s really just a symptom of a larger problem.  It could be that the company is attracting the wrong types of people for their position openings… and they’re probably not doing it deliberately.

Every organization has a reputation and if you find yourself only receiving applications from candidates whose backgrounds wind up to be worrisome (at best), it’s time to do some evaluation of your company’s core strengths and corporate culture.

From there, you’ll have a much better idea as to whether you need to make changes in the way you treat your people (and, by proxy, the way they treat your customers.)  It could just make all the difference when it comes to attracting candidates that are golden… not tarnished.
