Why staff testing is integral to your business success

As an employer, one of the most important aspects of hiring is this form of staff testing, which consists of two main parts: pre-employment background checks and drug screening. There are several reasons as to why it’s a good idea to run pre-employment background checks on potential new hires, including taking precaution to avoid future litigation and legal requirements. When it comes to drug screening, the primary reason is to avoid the legal issues if an employee has an accident while intoxicated at work. Drugs in the workplace can result in big bills for workers compensation if there’s an accident. It can also reduce productivity, and statistics show that those who abuse drugs and alcohol are ten times more likely to take time off work. Why are they important? According to statistics from recent studies on drug abuse by American workers, workplace drug and alcohol use costs U.S. businesses an estimated $100 billion each year. Furthermore, 30% of all business failures are caused by employee theft. That’s almost 1 in 3 failed businesses that may have been saved had employment screening occurred. Take a look at more reasons why you should be screening your employees. How to get started Firstly, I would decide which types of background checks you would like to perform. To do this, it would be a good idea to talk to a pre-employment screening service. A background screening service will provide you with reliable results, ensuring that you know any information regarding applicants or employees that could put you at risk. By helping you obtain such information, you are in a better position to make any hiring decisions.
