Once your organisation has decided that Employee Screening and Background Checks will form part and parcel of the company’s Recruitment and Human Resources process, it’s critical to ensure that this becomes company policy.
Each and every organisation, has every right to shield itself from unqualified, dishonest or unqualified candidates, which may expose the company to financial and reputational disaster.
However, organisational leaders must also ensure that employee screening is a structured and accepted part of the process. A poorly planned, haphazard approach will expose your company to criticism, employee dissatisfaction and even legal action.
One of the most effective ways to avoid these problems is to make background screening an accepted and standard part of company procedure through the implementation of a carefully considered background screening policy based on best practices.
Such a policy shows a company’s clear intention to protect both its employees and customers as a matter of procedure. Adoption of best practices demonstrates that the company applies its screening standards fairly, with cause, without prejudice and in compliance with all legal requirements.
Having a standard, mandatory background screening policy protects employees, customers and the organisation. For further information, or advice on how to setup a standard employee screening and background policy, contact iFacts today at firstname.lastname@example.org
