Avoiding a Background Check
Even if your intentions tell you that someone is genuinely a good person, you can easily be mislead and cause your company to suffer the consequences of your mistakes. So even if your gut instinct tells you everything is fine, ignore it and always send in your request for a background check. You never know who has committed what crime and as an owner of a business, that should be the last thing you want to find out on your own.
Forgetting to Go Over Your Expectations and Rules
Before an employee even wants to get hired, they want to know what it is you are expecting them to do and how they can accomplish that without breaking any rules. To eliminate these questions, you need to explain the expectations and rules descriptively to avoid them making any mistakes that could harm your business financially and publicly.
Going Over Qualifications
As most jobs require certain skills to be brought to the table, it is up to you to find out if the applicant is physically and mentally capable of doing the job. If you avoid this step and jump right into hiring them, you may have taken on much more work than you can handle.
