Handling Risk Management
May 17, 2016 | Staffing Blog
Making use of temporary employees is oftentimes a convenient staffing alternative. There are however some risks involved. Has the staffing company that you’re considering taken sufficient measures for Risk Management? Background checks and healthcare are two important things to take into consideration.
When Things Go Wrong
No matter what kind of company you have, it’s important for you to have some knowledge about the history of those that are working for you. You wouldn’t want to place someone in a position that involves handling money if they have a criminal history of theft. What if they stole something from one of your clients? If a situation was ever brought to court, you might be asked about your employee screening practices. Background checks can also help to alert you about violent tendencies that a potential employee might have. If the staffing agency doesn’t perform sufficient background checks, the burden can fall onto your company.
Health coverage is also an important factor of risk management. Staff members with the best intentions and work practices can sometimes suffer from a job related injury. Does the staffing agency that you’re using offer its workers sufficient healthcare coverage? If not, then the medical cost can easily fall on your company.
When selecting a staffing agency for your company, be sure ask all the right questions. A staffing agency that is truly prepared and has taken all important factors into consideration is the most secure solution.
