Small Business Background Checks
Small businesses can fail for many different reasons. Some might be a faulty product. Maybe a poor business model or unsuccessful marketing initiatives. Some will fail because of a lack of funding. Running a small business can feel like you are holding on for dear life hoping the next client comes through the door that way you can keep yourself afloat. You cannot put a number on the cost of a “Bad Hire” to a small business. A “Bad hire” can damage your company image, customer safety, employee safety, sales, and can even lead to a lawsuit.
