Have you ever experienced a bad hire? Well, pre-employment background checks could be all you need to hire for better outcomes. According to the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM), in a 2022 study, it was found that the average cost per new hire was $4,700. Hiring the right person has never been more important.
A comprehensive background check can be the best path forward when hiring an individual into an organization.
Enhancing Workplace Safety
One of the primary reasons employers conduct background checks is to ensure workplace safety. By reviewing an applicant’s criminal history, employers can minimize the risk of hiring someone with a history of violence, theft, or other criminal behavior.
Protecting Company Reputation
Hiring an employee with a criminal background can damage a company’s reputation. Thorough background checks help employers avoid public relations disasters and maintain a positive image.
Reducing Employee Turnover
Hiring the wrong candidate can lead to high employee turnover and increased costs for recruitment and training. Background checks can help employers avoid such situations by ensuring that candidates have the necessary skills and qualifications for the job.
Ensuring Regulatory Compliance
Various industries have specific regulations regarding employee background checks. Employers must comply with these regulations to avoid fines and penalties. Background checks can help employers ensure they are meeting all legal requirements.
