3 Fundamentals of Background Screening

Identifying the best talent and successfully on-boarding them is essential to the growth and long-term success of any organization. Failure to do that not only means an expensive re-boot of a candidate search, but also can cause disruption to organizational productivity and general morale.

For example, did you know that the replacement cost of a bad hire is up to 3x the employee’s salary? Or that employers lose 75% of negligent hiring lawsuits, and the average settlement of those claims is $1 million? Those are costs many organizations simply cannot absorb.

That's why it's important for organizations to utilize every tool at their disposal to mitigate the risks of a poor hiring decision. Background screening should be one of those important tools. But if you use background screening, it's very important you do it right.
