Why and how to run a pre-employment background check

Many candidates look perfect on paper. But what happens when, in reality, they’re not?

Think back to some of your past hires. Perhaps you met a Susan, who seemed to have the perfect references. Or, a John, whose education credits made him the intuitive pick for the role. But soon they proved to be poor hires for your team. And it was only when you were trying to figure out what went wrong that you realized Susan’s references were outdated and John had embellished his resume.

Outright lying about one’s credentials is not very common among candidates, but “embellishing” does happen. And it can lead to poor hiring decisions that, in turn, cost you, not just in time and money, but also in productivity and morale.

The good news? All this can be avoided with a pre-employment background check.
