Why Screen? This is a question that we as screening professionals used to have to answer on each and every sales call. Fast forward to 2006 and I can’t remember the last time I had this conversation with a prospective customer. We know that there are people out there still asking the question, but because there are so many that are not, many of us have chosen to focus on those that know they need to conduct background checks on their applicants.
The article How to Hire Better for Less in the trade publication Convenience Store Decisions makes a great real world case for those still on the fence about screening or those that do not believe it can produce results.
Whether you are a believer in the impact pre-employment screening can have on your hiring process or not, this article is worth a quick read.
