Chances are, you already use basic screening tools when hiring staff, such as employment reference checks, multiple interviews, and perhaps background checks.

Improve Employee Selection,
prior to hiring
Savvy business owners understand the importance of screening applicants to select those that are honest, reliable, and qualified. For this reason, many companies call work references, conduct interviews, and perform background checks. The first two cost valuable time, and the third costs money. All are indispensable.
Most companies first screen applicants by the application, interview those that are of interest, call references of the finalists, and then pay for a background check. This protocol consistently delivers average results.
The process of screening each applicant serves a secondary purpose as well; relationship building. Their first impression of you is the foundation of the relationship that follows. What relationship do you want? Ideally, they will be comfortable in your presence and will speak freely, they will contribute their strengths and experience with passion, but ultimately will be willing to follow your direction when given.
Our recommended hiring protocol does an excellent job of screening out both unqualified and unmotivated applicants, but also forms a healthy employer/employee relationship in the process.
