Background Checks in HR: Why They're Important

Background Checks in HR: Why They're Important

Anybody who pursues a career in HR will likely come across the concept of “background checks” at some point. After all, many businesses find it important to run checks on new employees before extending an offer letter. This pre-employment screening helps employers see criminal, financial, and employment history of a candidate before deciding whether or not they’re a good fit for the organization. Even the most extensive application process doesn’t validate any employment or education experience without some deeper digging. The phrase “trust, but verify” is a great mentality to have when approaching the hiring process.

3 Ways to Create a Bully-Free Workplace

Bullying has become more of a concern in the United States now more than ever. Videos have gone viral on social media, parents are suing schools, and not only is it affecting children and teenagers, but it also affects adults, especially in the workplace.

These actions may put the affected employee’s physical and emotional health at risk. Workplace bullies don’t simply intimidate their victims; their actions can range from spreading rumors around the office in order to harm their target’s reputation, avoid telling them about important meetings, hide their office supplies, or anything that will make their victim feel helpless or useless. Keep in mind that bullying is defined by the effect of the behavior, not just the intent.
