1. Frankenstein's Monster: A resume that doesn't add up
In order to determine why someone’s resume doesn’t make sense, make sure to run a comprehensive background check that can include education, license and residential verifications, and more.
2. The Shapeshifter: One second they're there...
The best way recruiters can avoid shapeshifters is by conducting a reference check. This is more than a LinkedIn profile search! Use a qualified background screening company, which can get accurate references from potential employees’ previous employers.
3. The Werewolf: One person, two personas
Take steps to prevent this from occurring by screening for these werewolves during your hiring process. A criminal background check will reveal if your employee has an unsavory life outside of work.
4. The Ghost: New hires who never return
The tricky thing about new hire retention is it’s not always the new hire’s fault. Sometimes the new hire simply doesn’t mesh with the company. To mitigate this, be sure to include questions that focus on a culture fit during your interview process. Then, when you’re checking a candidate’s references, talk with previous employers about your candidate’s communication style and work ethic. References aren’t just about checking to see if a candidate was honest about where they worked.
