There are two types of advertising – one way is to pay for it…, and the other is free. Unfortunately, free adverting is usually at the expense of your company’s reputation when the news media runs a story about your employee assaulting one of your clients. One of the first questions asked, “Did your company do a background check before hiring?”
Unfortunately, something like this can – and most likely will – “RUIN” your business’s reputation in a heartbeat.
Time and time again we have stressed the need for background screening. Do your due diligence and make sure when you hire someone to come into your home that you “inquire and insist” that the worker has had a proper background screening and that it was done by a reputable company. (Don’t fall for Internet screens) Let these company’s you do business with understand that your safety is important to you. If they don’t screen…..explain your policy is only to have professionally screened individuals come into your home. Sooner or later they’ll get the message and start being more responsible by realizing background screening in their business is a necessity.
Don’t be a victim. It can happen to anyone anytime. No one is immune to these types of attacks. Without the proper information and screening process this could happen to you.
