Importance of Background Checks

 

In today's business climate, conducting background checks is a necessity - not an option. Background checks protect companies, fellow employees and third parties from negative effects that result when unfit candidates are hired. A person with poor intentions, reckless habits or invisible mental issues can cause havoc in a company, endangering it's reputation and financial standing. Choosing not to conduct background checks means a company takes on the risk of it's employees behavior and therefore making a company liable for negative situations such as crimes, fines and lawsuits.

 

 

Objectives of Background Checks

 

Background checks are more than merely criminal record checks. The objective in carrying out comprehensive background checks are to ensure that the applicant is who he/she says they are, that they have done what they say have done, have attained the level of education stated, are licensed to do what they do and that they are good character. An additional tool of great value is an Attitude and Behavioral Assessment that establishes cultural fit within an organisation. Not all jobs are the same, therefore the criteria would vary to match the job requirements.

SOCIAL MEDIA

SCREENING

Social media screening allows employers to add to their vetting process, gaining valuable insight into candidates and existing employees. Employers will obtain insight into candidate's strengths, weaknesses, hobbies, passions, charitable work, etc.

 

In addition it allows employers the ability to safeguard against incompatible candidates, that would likely result in significant reputational damage to the organisation, by highlighting "red-flags" (racism, sexism, homophobia, illegal behaviour, image/brand/reputation/damaging content).

 

Incorporating social media screening into the vetting process, results in increased levels of first time fit, job satisfaction and productivity. Employers will have the added peace of mind that the process ensures for impartial, balanced and unbiased results.
