Hiring Due Diligence
By: Rick Boxx

Hiring the wrong person is a costly mistake for a business and for the employee that doesn’t work out. That’s why an employer has a responsibility as a good steward to do proper due diligence before hiring.
A new study performed by three universities discovered that reviewing Facebook profiles of job applicants may improve your hiring success rate. The study rated job applicant’s based on the reviewers perceptions of the applicant’s Facebook profiles.
When compared to later job evaluations they found a strong correlation between the original ratings and the ultimate job performance.
Proverbs 10:4 teaches, “Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.”
Although there’s some possible legal risk, if you desire to have the best team, it takes due diligence and research before extending job offers.
