Make sure your recruiting agency offers a background check for all final candidates. With a third party company initiating the background check, you save time and energy from investing in a job candidate that may not fulfill your company’s standards.
The recruiting firm you’re partnering with should also have an option for you to drug screen the candidate to whom you’d like to make an offer. Again, the firm can set-up the testing, give directions to the candidate and handle the news of the results so you can continue growing your team and running a successful business without taking time away for the potential new hire.
Not least of all, the recruiting firm you hire should contact previous employers and references of applicants for work ethic and character inquiries (as permitted by law). Your hired recruiter will reach out to managerial candidates for your company and is able to commit time needed to complete phone, skype or in person interviews before you even have to sit down with the job applicant.
By hiring the right recruiting firm, you can ensure your new employees are unlikely to be one of the many contributing to the increase of drug use in the workplace.
