When ensuring background checks with your employees, it is difficult to monitor whether or not your employees commit crimes after they pass their initial background check. Therefore, you can potentially compromise the safety and security of both your employees and customers.
However, by using a system that actively monitors your employees and continuously performs background checks, you can ensure that you employ only the most qualified individuals. With this extra layer of security, you can guarantee a safe workplace to your employees and high-quality work to your customers.
Right now, because of how time consuming the onboarding process can be, some companies start printing badges for employees before they pass their initial background check. However, this can be unsafe as it grants access to someone who may be dangerous.
By directly linking background check results to employee credentials, you can easily improve security. If someone submits a badge request and fails their initial background check, they simply will not receive a badge.
Furthermore, with a system that seamlessly integrates continuous background monitoring with credentials, badges can also be revoked automatically if an employee commits a crime. You, as the employer, can also receive a notification saying that the employee was flagged because of the background check system.
Doing this also keeps employee records in one system, which makes it easier to stay organized and verify the compliance of on-site employees. In practice, you can simply scan an employee's credentials and see their most up-to-date background check results.
In the end, linking background check results and employee credentials allows you to automate some of your administrative responsibilities, improve security, and stay more organized. All of which helps secure your company’s reputation and gives you the ability to honestly say that your employees can complete their work safely and competently.
Although ensuring that employees have completed their background checks may seem like a difficult task, it is important. We already know that it can affect many different aspects of our company, such as organization, expenses, and security. So, let’s stop avoiding the inevitable and start putting the proper procedures in place today.
All we have to do now is complete three simple steps. First, let’s distribute virtual badges to our employees. Then, we can implement a system that continuously monitors background checks. Finally, we can link our employee background check results directly to their badges to make everything easily accessible.
