You’re researching candidates for an important position. You want to make sure you get the right person to thrive in the role. You can conduct numerous rounds of interviews asking the toughest of questions, but if you skip the fundamental step of getting a professional background check, you’re making a critical mistake.
According to a Harris Poll survey, 58 percent of hiring managers say they’ve caught lies on a resume. An even scarier thought is the embellishments that existed but weren’t caught, especially when the claims were necessary to perform a job correctly.
Fortunately, there’s an easy solution to certifying that everything a candidate says is true: a background check. However, not all background checks are created equal. If you’re tempted to verify a candidate’s information on a freebie website, you might want to think again. Not only could the information you receive be incorrect, but you might be in violation of state and federal laws. The last thing you want is a lawsuit simply because you were trying to do your due diligence.
