Background Checks are essential in assuring you hire the best people for your department.
By: Katie Niver, Risk Management Program Resource Specialist
Have you ever heard the saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”? Look around you; how well do you really know your co-workers? In today’s high-tech, fast-paced world where anything can be changed with a simple click of a button, background checks are becoming a necessity in the work place. Too often, employers take a potential employee at their word, trusting everything they have said in their interview and written on their application to be true. But how true is it? Or better yet – did they tell you everything? McNeil & Co. is proud to be partnering with JD Palatine to offer our insureds a quick and simple solution for your background checking needs.
In today’s competitive job market, applicants are more likely to take a polishing cloth to their resume to buff out the imperfections that might give you, as the employer, a moment of pause. A candidate may look like a perfect fit, but what about that un-written history or checkered past that could be lurking in the shadows? For employers, sometimes what you can’t see CAN hurt you and your business.
JD Palatine offers a variety of different packages to help the invisible become visible, with services such as Social Security Number Verification or Address History ensuring employees are who they say they are. Employee identity verification is paramount in any business, but what about past brushes with the law that might have been left unmentioned? JD Palatine allows you to run searches through different state and federal databases, such as the National Criminal Database, Sex Offender Registry, and the Office of Foreign Asset Control (Terror Watch List). With certain packages, you even have the ability to narrow the scope and run local county searches.
As an employer, you have the responsibility to ensure your consumer that you are able to provide the best services possible. By using the JD Palatine background check packages available, you are taking the first step in reaching the quality you strive to provide.
