Small businesses are the backbone of the economy, and hiring new employees is a crucial part of their success. However, many small businesses do not have the resources or expertise to conduct a thorough background check on their prospective employees. This can leave them vulnerable to hiring unqualified candidates, or worse, employees who may pose a risk to their business.
According to a recent study by CareerBuilder, 75% of employers have caught a lie on a resume, and 33% of employers reported that they have seen an increase in fake diplomas in the past few years. In addition, a study by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners found that over half of all job applications contained some type of falsehood.
This is why it is essential for small businesses to conduct due diligence when hiring new employees. This includes verifying work history, checking diplomas and certificates, and conducting a thorough background check. By doing so, small businesses can protect themselves from potential lawsuits, loss of productivity, and damage to their reputation.
