When you are looking to hire a job candidate how do you go about qualifying them? Are you looking for someone that exhibits the necessary job skills, education and experience, or is it just because the have a lack of anything negative? Just because these applicants passed your background checks does not mean that they are a qualified potential employee for your company.
Showing a lack of weaknesses is not the same as showing strengths. Being able to discern the difference between the two will only benefit your company by hiring those that make your company stronger as a whole. Hiring employees who exhibit strength in skills, or experience, or judgment will provide far better results than the employee who simply does not have any glaring reasons not to hire them.
That doesn’t mean that background checks are not a needed part of the hiring process. It means that the pre employment screening is one of many steps that should be taken to qualify a potential job applicant before they are hired.
The take- away is to start to hire differently. Set a higher standard for the employees you hire. Have an expectation that they know the job they are being hired for. They should have experience in handling and diffusing customer complaints, and how to not make customers upset in the first place. Employees should be able to work with minimal supervision. An employee who has to be constantly monitored will only waste your time and resources in the long run.
