Background screening tips for truckers
by Sean Kilcarr, in Trucks at Work
Small trucking firms may think they’ve got an advantage when it comes to ensuring the quality of their workforce because – hey – verifying the veracity of a smaller group of employees is by its very nature far easier than doing so for a larger group, right?
Not necessarily so, though – if small trucking operators aren’t using good employment screening processes. Indeed, background check firm HireRight recently conducted a survey of small businesses as part of its 2014 HireRight Small Business Spotlight and found that 64% of the companies participating in the poll said screening exposed someone who lied on a resume or application, with another 54% noting that screening uncovered issues that would not have been found otherwise.
