Hiring new employees means that the company is opening its company to external threats especially if you were not able to conduct a background check properly. These new employees gained access to the company’s resources especially information that is crucial to its operations. Hence, it is imperative that when you are hiring new personnel, a background check should be accurately done. To do so, learn how you can avoid the six screening mistakes often done by HR personnel.
1. Install a standard background policy. What do you often check about the person? Is it the employment records, educational records, credit history, or driving incidents? A standard policy allows a company to verify the identity of the applicant.
2. Always verify the applicant’s educational attainment and employment history. It is pretty easy to forge a document showing that an applicant has a graduated a certain degree. But, you don’t stop with reading the transcript of records or diploma; instead, give the school a call.
3. Checking on your partners has been proven to be effective; especially for the companies that have temporary employees, contractors and suppliers. They may not be directly related to the internal affairs but they have regular transactions with the company and they can be a threat as well.
