Making the right hiring decisions is critical to any organization, regardless of size. But getting it right isn?t easy.
We all know the negative consequences of making the wrong hire ? it can lower your organizations overall morale, hinder productivity, and even impact customer relations. But did you know that the cost of replacing an experienced worker who doesn?t work out can cost 50 percent or more of that individual?s salary, and these costs go up if the employee has specialized skills.
There are many things you can do to ensure you make informed decisions and hire quality employees and one of them is to conduct thorough background checks.
A pre-employment background check can not only save you money in the long run, it can also protect your business. How? If your employees come into direct contact with your customers (for example, in a care capacity) and it is learned they caused harm to a customer, your business can become liable. A background check can also provide insight into an individual?s behaviour, character, and integrity.

Many Private Investigation Agencies will offer complete background checks while helping you stay compliant with the law. However, like any industry there are the good ones and the ones to be careful of. When sourcing out your background checks to a 3rd party like a Private Investigation Agency always ensure the agency has qualified individuals that can conduct such searches for you. Visit them at their office(s) to get a feel you are dealing with a reputable team. Ask to see their agency licence which should be visibly displayed within their office. Ask to see and confirm they have the proper insurance to conduct the work for you. Make sure if it is a private Investigation agency you are sourcing to that they are licensed as an agency through the Ministry of Safety and Correctional Services. Today many individuals selling the services are just licenced Private Investigators. They need to be working for an agency to sell such services. If you are unsure contact the Ministry of Safety and Correctional Services Private Security and Investigations Services branch @ 1-866-767-7454.

Please Note: It is strongly recommended that you and your team always consult first with a lawyer prior to engaging and conducting background check programs within your respected organizations
