Background & Reference Checks: If You Could Have Know ... You SHOULD Have Known!
NOTE: Listeners have requested we combine our earlier 2 part interview with John into a single podcast for easier listening. Thanks for the suggestion - and here it is.
As hiring managers we are often guilty of skipping or doing a hurried job of background checks, and a subgroup of this, reference checks. After they start working with us, we find ourselves discovering things and say, “I wish someone had told me that before I hired this salesperson.”
Join us and our guest John Beaudette, a Private Investigator and Vice President of Operations & Compliance at Employment Screening Services. He's been doing this for over 30 years and his company really has it down to a science.
We talk about the reasons for background checks and why it’s so important to make sure we conduct them for each candidate, maybe even relying on experts who do this far better than we can do it ourselves.
Reference checks today are very different than they were in the past. This podcast shares important information you need to know about Reference checking:
- False references and what to look out for
- The challenges of candidate self-documentation
- Salary history ban laws
- Continuous Criminal Monitoring
Why listen to this podcast? Because if you could have known ... you should have known!
