Background Check Benefits: Why Your Dallas Staffing Agencies Look Into Your History

When you register with Staff Force’s Austin, Houston, San Antonio and Dallas staffing agencies, it is important that we run a background check on your history. Though there is a negative stigma surrounding background checks, they are critical to making sure we match the right candidates with the right jobs.

Employment screening is not meant to harm candidates, but the purpose is to protect clients and other employees from risk. There are several benefits to running background checks as a staffing agency. A few of the positive factors surrounding background checks are as follows:

  • They detect false information on job applications by verifying the accuracy of employment and educational histories. It can help companies detect abusive pasts and unethical or criminal activity that may be hiding from the application.
  • They prevent unsafe activity in the workplace by finding out if the candidate has a history of financial wrongdoing, sexual abuse or other criminal acts. This creates a safer, more ethical work environment for clients and fellow employees.
  • They protect against negligent hiring suits by determining whether an applicant would cause a risk to clients in the form of harm or injury to others on the job site.
  • They avoid contractual risks by making sure that the staffing agency is properly selecting candidates who are fit for employment and do not pose a threat to the client to be placed in jobs.
  • They build better client relationships and protect the staffing agency’s brand by providing clients with skilled workers who will meet their operating goals and have been subject to a thorough background check that reflects their responsibilities.
  •  
    Placing the right employees in the right jobs is important because they are representing your staffing agency and its experience and professionalism. This also develops more long-term client relationships.

    As an employee, you can have confidence in knowing that you are safe around your co-workers if you have all been subject to a background check. They are not only important to the management and reputation of the staffing agency and its clients, but they are vital to ensuring that employees are not at risk when they come to work.
