Make Hiring Easy in 2022 with Employee Screening & Background Check Experts

Last Updated on April 8, 2022 by G. T. HR

It’s “go time” for hiring! Industries are continuing to feel the strain of the pandemic into 2022 while trying to hire for vacant positions.

Employees are part of your corporate brand, reputation, and success. Therefore, hiring a trustworthy and reputable worker is very important. One of the tools we use to make sure that we hire only trustworthy and reputable workers is through thorough employee screening.

A Common Hiring Scenario That Wastes Time & Money

Unfortunately, human resources professionals may waste their time on candidates who look great on paper. The script goes something like this: a candidate comes in the door with a strong resumé and a nice disposition. It looks promising!

Next, the true work begins. You have to confirm the quality and credibility of the candidate. Employee screening information is run and appropriate background checks are performed. Then, you discover that the candidate’s resumé contains false information or that they have has omitted information about a criminal record.

As a company that hires frequently, you’ll want to:

  1. Make sure that you get the most accurate information.
  2. Not waste valuable resources by discovering that incomplete background screenings were run.

This is not an uncommon scenario in the world of employee screening. This is why it is essential to work directly with your screening expert to customize your screening package. By doing this, you’ll work efficiently to process your job candidates.

What Makes a Good Screening Expert

Employee screening can save you time and money, but only when you work in tandem. How do you choose the right screening expert? Below are some of the qualities of a screening expert to look for.

An Expert That Listens Before Providing Solutions

Listening skills are at the very basic foundation of customer service. Clients will tell you what they need. This is how to strong start in creating the screening package that will service your industry, whether it be healthcare, engineering, retail, etc. while saving you money.

Someone Who Provides Customization to Your Screening Package

Every organization has diverse requirements. Hiring for some roles requires a different type of due diligence than others. This means that screening needs to be conducted on a per position basis and customized to the employer’s unique needs.

Every employer should order specific products that drill down into the elements of a candidate’s background for the specific business, industry, and position. Don’t pick the lowest cost option, rather a solution that truly suits your needs. Your ordering package should be customized to make your ordering easy and free of confusion.

Use Expert Screeners to Hire With Confidence

It’s important to get your hiring right the first time. Recruiting and hiring while the nation struggles to recover from the coronavirus pandemic continues to be a top concern. In fact, Turnover reached a new high as 4.5 million workers quit their jobs in November, according to the Labor Department’s latest Job Openings and Labor Turnover report. The takeaway from this is that rushing to fill a position, only to find out that you have hired someone that can put your entire company at risk, is far more costly than doing the work to ensure you have a quality candidate for the job.
