Why Should You Run Background Checks?


More than ever before, the hiring process has become a very tedious task. Gone are the days when organizations found it very easy to hire employees and refill vacant spaces. With increasing awareness about the importance of running a background check, hiring managers now realize the need to be very cautious.


The reason why hiring managers now have to be more cautious is not limited to the phenomenon of applicants who lay false claims in their CVs or forge certificates. Beyond these scenarios, organizations now bear the risk of being sued for negligent hiring if an employee puts up a behavior that could’ve been anticipated, had the hiring process been conducted properly.


While an organization strives to maximize profit and eliminate risks, it would be rather unfortunate if attention is paid to every other detail and a loophole which could lead to a lawsuit is left unattended. Apart from the cost implication, the distraction and ill-fame that an avoidable situation would cause an organization is the reason why running background checks on potential employees cannot be overemphasized.


To be on the safer side, many organizations prefer to outsource this delicate aspect of HR to third-party agents.
