Call before digging!

Calling first can prevent a disaster

Most of us have seen the signs and are aware of the need to call underground services before digging.

When you look at the surface you just don’t know what lies beneath. Digging into a live electric line or gas line could be fatal; breaking a water line could disrupt service to an entire neighborhood.

The same can be said when hiring a new employee. Call before hiring!

What looks good in person or on a resume does not always reveal the true character or habits of the individual you may hire. A past criminal record could prove fatal to your business. Even the recreational use of drugs could put the safety of other employees at risk.

No business wants to loose productivity or profitability due to a poor hiring decision. Large enterprise businesses may survive a few poor decisions but for a small business owner a single poor hiring decision could put the survival of their business at risk.
