Why You Should Check People Before They Start Working For You

There are many good people in this world but as we all know, there are also many who are unscrupulous and look to do bad things for personal gain. When it comes to hiring staff for your business, it is of course vital that you avoid these bad people and focus on getting the very best through your doors. In order to make sure that recruits are up to the standard that you expect, it is absolutely vital that you check people thoroughly prior to them signing that contract. Even the Better Business Bureau (BBB) recommend doing a background check on all employees and if you don’t already, here is why it is so important.

If you own a commercial business then you will always need to be on the lookout for theft from within, and this starts with checking people out before they come to work for you. Of course you cannot always spot someone that is trying scam you just for looking at their resume, but anyone who has prior convictions can be easily identified. There are all kinds of scams that you could find in the business from offering a fake refund to their friends and family to full scale embezzlement, be smart and make sure that you check people out thoroughly before they come and work for you.


There has been evidence in the past of competitors sending someone to get a job in another company, who then share sensitive information and do their utmost to damage the other firm. This is of course a terrible thing which can happen but it actually does take place on many different levels of severity. You may have run into a negative Google review of your business which has seemingly come from nowhere, this is the least that a competitor can do, at their worst they  could easily plant someone in your company with the sole intention of causing damage and sharing ideas.


If a new member of staff happens to have a criminal conviction and you are aware of it, there is of course nothing wrong with them coming to work for you if you are happy. With this being said however there are some crimes which are too severe for a new business to accept and if these are hidden it could bring the entire company into disrepute. I won’t go into the heinous crimes that we are talking about, I am sure that you can use your imagination. Just imagine however if you are trying to build a brand which you are asking your customers to trust and have faith in, perhaps even a family brand, and then news comes out that you have people working for you who have been found guilty of terrible crimes.

You can never completely remove the possibility of these things happening but you can most certainly do your bit to prevent it by checking the new people that come through the door.
