Pre-employment screening can encompass a variety of different services, depending on your company’s circumstances. Deciding what services will best serve your long term success by considering assessment your areas of greatest potential risk.

Risk managers specializing in the investigation of employee misconduct and criminal activity in the workplace cite several benefits of pre-employment screening:
- Knowing they will undergo screening increases the likelihood that candidates will represent themselves honestly.
- The announcement that background and substance screening is required during the hiring process will cause some high-risk candidates to exclude themselves.
- Job history, driving records and criminal background checks, where applicable, can provide information that may reduce the risk of turnover, theft of company or client property or assets and accidents on and off the job, all of which affect your bottom line and company morale.
More Than Just a Drug Test
More and more companies require new hires to undergo drug & alcohol testing. But depending on your business, your company may benefit greatly from broader and deeper information about your potential new hires. If prospective employees would be in a position to have access to clients’ financial assets or intangible assets such as proprietary information or materials, you may decide to establish a policy of background screening which includes criminal background or financial background checks.
Substance abusing employees cost employers in myriad ways, quantifiable and not, but all very important. Pre-employment drug and alcohol screening provides a snapshot that gives you specifically targeted and objective information about your potential new hires. This is information that can help prevent problems in the future. Employers today often decide it’s better to be safe than sorry in these matters. When it comes to drug testing, don’t take unnecessary chances. Call ARCpoint Labs of Kansas City North for assistance.
