RUNNING YOUR COMPANY:
You need to staff your company with people who will reduce your
risk of doing business not increase it, actually have
the experience they claim, who will contribute ideas for your
success, and who will get along well with your current employees.
LIMITING YOUR RISK:
If you are ever sued by a client, by another employee, or by a stranger
complaining about your employee, you want to make sure that you have
the documentation at the time of that trial to protect yourself. That
means that you did check in a prudent way, and you used legal means
to obtain your information. Part of "using legal means" means that
you have obeyed all Federal and State laws, and if you have used a third party
to obtain your information, that they are licensed to do that job. You
certainly do not want the documents that you plan on having to protect
you in a law suit, be declared "inadmissible" for your protection because
they were illegally obtained.
MAXIMIZING YOUR GROWTH:
Your company is all about your people. You want the best that you can
hire. You want to know that they are smart, properly motivated, honest,
not under the influence, and have no hidden agenda.
