Many private sector businesses face choices when moving forward with background checks for employees. And the results are too often costly.
With the cost of hiring a new employee averaging thousands dollars (8-15% of annual wages), for less than a day’s wage you can get access to 10-fold background check. A bad hire can cost upwards of $20,000 in severance pay, training, wasted human resources time, possible search firm fees, loss of productivity, and impact on employee morale. The expense of a bad hire far outweighs the cost of a background check.
