You’ve developed your brand—your own propriety blend for business success. You’ve grown assets and collected working capital. You’ve drafted strategies and plotted future plans.
But what else is at the heart of business growth?
The people you hire.
Here are some ways to tackle that process.
Develop strong hiring practices
Everyone knows. Hiring the wrong employees gets expensive. Employees—your human capital—will be your most expensive asset. Good hiring practices help you invest wisely. Whether you’re looking for full-time talent or freelancers, it’s important to have a compliant hiring process and policies.
Focus on safety
An HR.com survey said 95 percent of employers do some type of screening as part of their hiring process. Reasons vary—safety, hiring quality, legal requirements, and more. Screening helps verify identities; check criminal, educational, and work history; run credit and financial reports; and screen for drug and alcohol use. Different industries have different screening requirements.
No one can safeguard their company’s human capital integrity without a strong focus on compliance. When you choose a screening partner, look for one focused on accuracy and compliance. Screeners should have professional associations like the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA, formerly NAPBS). Screening reports should be compliant with all the latest state and federal rules, including FCRA, EEOC, and others.
Screening is more than another business report. Done right, it’s a commitment—not only to your brand but to the safety of everyone who comes in contact with your business. Screening helps show the high value you place on your clients, and most of all, your employees.
