What Company Doesn’t Want Great Employees?

“I have great employees!”  What CEO, VP, manager or supervisor wouldn’t want to be able to announce that to all the world and really, honestly, sincerely mean it?  The answer is:  ALL OF THEM!  Yet without background checks, getting great employees is going to be tough.


Background screening of all new hires can immediately weed out the hucksters from the hard workers.  Not only can comprehensive background checks save you time and money, but they can also tell you:


·         Any discrepancies on a would-be employee’s job application and/or resume.  (This includes work histories and educational backgrounds.)

·         Whether or not your candidate has a criminal record.  (Don’t assume you can easily find this out, either; without the help of a professional screening organization, you could be duped.)

·         If your potential employee has left a positive trail… or a negative one… in his/her wake.  (Reference checking the RIGHT way can give an incredible amount of info!)


There’s no reason for you NOT to have great employees.  They’re out there, they want to work and they’ll be your stars for a good, long time.  However, if you aren’t background checking, you may miss a diamond-in-the-rough for the false dazzle of a polished cubic zirconia.  And that would be a shame.

“Free” Background Checks are NEVER Free!

NEWSFLASH:  “Free” Background Checks are Anything But!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably been the recipient of spam emails suggesting that you can get free background checks.  And while there may be aspects of background checks that you can do at no cost, it’s definitely a misnomer.

See, background checking is more than just Googling someone’s information and calling a few people.  It involves strict procedures and processes to get it down correctly.  There are also some rules and regulations when it comes to disclosing what you’ve uncovered, especially if you’re an employer. 

In the end, it’s a “you’ll pay for it now or pay for it later” type of situation.  Sure, you can do some of the background checks “for free” (and that’s not taking into account your time), but you’ll end up needing to go to a third party for some elements of it regardless.

Don’t fall for all the hype.  Instead of being penny wise and pound foolish, hire a reputable background screening organization and sleep well at night knowing that all the proverbial ”i”s have been dotted and “t”s have been crossed.
