One of the most important business decisions a Company can make is to hire the right person for a vacant position. Companies must carefully weigh a candidate’s experience, skills, abilities, education, and personality to help determine whether or not he or she is not only qualified, but also the right culture fit for the organization. Even when the stars seem to align, there are those times where a seemingly ideal candidate proves to be a problem employee down the line. One easy-to-implement and critical tool that supports hiring the right person and helps avoid a potential disaster is a pre-employment background check.

The Benefits of a Pre-Employment Background Check

Below are just a few examples of how a background check helps companies identify the right people:
Regardless of the nature of the business or position, the benefits of a pre-employment background check always outweigh the costs. With a cost typically in the $40-75 range, an employer is investing the equivalent of 2-3 hours of the employee’s wage into an additional safeguard against making a bad hiring decision.
