Why you need TMAP-Backgrounds™

Your employees are your most valuable resources. But a bad hire can result in:

Exposure arising from workplace violence and negligent hiring alone justifies setting up a pre-employment background screening program. The number one predictor of workplace violence is past problems. Since most employers are unable to obtain good references from past employers, using the TMAP-BackgroundsTM pre-employment background screening professionals can be critical.

The level of investigation should be comparable with the position for which the applicant may be hired. Performing pre-employment background screenings is certainly not a guarantee that every bad applicant will be discovered. However, just engaging in a pre-employment background screening program demonstrates due diligence and provides an employer with legal protection.

It is also important to understand that a pre-employment background screening program is aimed at how a person has performed in the public aspect of their lives. Items such as a criminal record or previous job performance reflect how a person behaved towards others, or discharged their obligations or responsibilities. Screening is NOT an invasion of privacy, a sign of mistrust or an act of “Big Brother.”

Hiring new employees can be taxing, even for companies with a fully staffed Human Resources and Security Departments. Most applicants are honest and hard working. However, a growing number of people are falsifying their applications, embellishing their credentials or hiding negative information such as criminal convictions or a termination for cause. There is no question that a background-screening program is more then worth the cost.
