Construction & Manufacturing
The persistent labor shortage in the construction industry has left many employers feeling that they must relax their hiring standards to keep jobs staffed and projects moving forward. In manufacturing, the temptation to compress the hiring timeline can seem just as intense as firms manage materials costs, intricate logistics and client expectations.
Despite pressure to meet client demands and staff up quickly, bringing the wrong candidates on board can result in significant costs to your company’s reputation and your bottom line. Even in circumstances of severe time restraints, a construction background check or manufacturing industry background check should represent critical components of your hiring process.
Hiring even one ill-intentioned or unqualified employee can do more harm than you might think. Unreliability, unacceptable performance, and even criminal activity such as theft or sabotage can leave blemishes on your brand, costly dips in team morale, and lasting financial damage.
To reduce the risk of bad hires, construction and manufacturing companies commonly conduct background screenings including:
- • Criminal background
- • Name and address locator
- • Employment verification
- • Credit reports
- • License verification
- • Motor vehicle reports
- • Educational verificationss
- • Professional references
- • International searches
