Some people go on gut feelings when meeting new people. Others need a little bit more proof. As a business owner or recruiter, you need to be able to trust the people that you hire. Thirty percent of small businesses are negatively affected by employee theft; therefore, background checks are an absolute necessity when looking for new hires.
You need a strong system
for hiring quality, trustworthy employees.
Data is precious material and is more exposed than ever in our digital age. Background checks must be done with the utmost discretion and forethought to insure everyone maintains the privacy they are entitled to.
This book gets you in with an expert. Rachid Zahidi is the President and CEO of Sentinel Background Checks and has all of the knowledge you need about the processes, laws, and precautions needed to look at a current or potential employee’s past. You will learn what information is appropriate to look for depending on the position and how to use it properly, as well as other valuable information to look for in order to further protect yourself from lawsuits and fraud. By taking these precautions, you create a safer work environment for your staff and yourself. This book will help you avoid losses and build a business of trusted employees.
Rarely is such a practical and insightful guide available to business owners. As an employment-law attorney dealing with HR and “privacy” issues on a daily basis, I highly recommend The Business Immunity System. It is an extremely useful tool for companies and business owners who are attempting to navigate the murky waters of its duty to provide a safe workplace vs. its duty to avoid violations of privacy rights. Rachid, with many years of hands-on experience, helps the reader address those issues while avoiding legal complications.
If only a business could make itself completely immune! Of course, while this is not possible, Rachid’s book is a great guide to data protection, privacy and the all-important pre-employment background check. This is a quick read, in lay terms, and gives employers what they need to know to protect themselves from easily-preventable mistakes.
In an ever-changing landscape of rules and regulations, The Business Immunity System grasps the timeless principles that allow for responsible screening and due diligence policies and procedures. Every entrepreneur or professional who is responsible for hiring and talent selection can’t afford to remain ignorant of these background checking concepts.
There is a new breed of digital criminals out there that are focused on accessing our personal and business information to make a profit. The Business Immunity System identifies the problems and provides practical solutions to protect yourself, your employees, and your business information. The solutions in this book need to be implemented immediately!
The Business Immunity System is indispensable reading that must be implemented into any enterprise that cares about its employees and its future… Rachid has laid out very vital principles to ensure any company has the needed defenses against hidden crime and destructive influences. You can call him “the corporate doctor”.
Rachid’s book is a must read for any leader, business owner, or head of HR that wants to hire the right talent. One of the biggest mistakes that I see companies trip up on is to make hiring decisions on little or incorrect data. This book is unique in that it shows you the inside world of background checks and how despite your best efforts, you can get false information.
