Background Screenings: How Safe is Your Facility These Days?

If you turn on the news, it’s not uncommon to hear about a former employee causing trouble at their workplace. In fact, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), there are roughly two million people annually who experience a type of violence (physical, harassment, intimidation, or other disturbing behavior) at their workplace. Even more surprising, a quarter of that number never report it —perhaps making it difficult for employers to see how necessary background screenings are to their company.

To help prevent future problems at your workplace, there are many benefits to having background screenings done on all new hires. Watch the video below to learn about some alarming facts and stats about people who apply for jobs.

When you partner with City Wide, we make sure all independent contractors have a background screening conducted. That means, no one enters your building or facility to perform janitorial services or other maintenance tasks without first having that background screening. We care about the safety those who occupy your building just as much as you do. Learn more about City Wide.
