If you are currently looking to hire or add to your current staff there are a few things to keep in mind when dealing with new people. First of all you will always want to require an employee background check before hiring anyone. This will allow you to see the individuals previous work history including any criminal history or bad behavior at work that may have led to them being fired.
As with hiring a new staff worker you also will want to protect yourself when renting your property to a stranger. You want to rent your home or business property to someone that will care for it properly and pay on time. You should consider doing a tenant credit check in order to review their previous rental history. This will allow you to see if they have ever been evicted or failed to pay on time. You also want to know ahead of time if the individual has any type of criminal history or if they have ever damaged a previous landlord’s property.
Normally most businesses, landlords and other important situations will require references but are not always used. If you are looking to hire someone or rent them your home you should always use reference checking to ensure that they are as responsible as they say or that there are individuals out there who can verify for all of the information that they have previously given you. This will allow you to make an informed decision on what is best for you.
