A considerable talent "drain" is occurring in
businesses across America. Our Executive Search and
Recruiting staff here at The HR Group are seeing it in
certain sectors. Why? The growing effects of global
demographic trends, along with continuing economic
insecurity and a serious deficiency of certain skill sets
among job candidates creates a significant talent depletion.
As a result, proactive, forward-thinking companies are
putting talent, especially leadership talent, at the head of
their corporate strategy.
Background checks can be very useful to hiring managers in
recruiting and hiring the most reliable employees and as the
economy continues to struggle, managers are becoming more
and more careful in their selection of qualified workers.
Not only can background checks help determine whether or not
a job candidate has been less than truthful on their
application, but they can also alert hiring managers to the
possibility that this employee may be more likely to engage
in violence or theft in the workplace.
