Employment Background Checks For The Boat Dealer and Yacht Industry
Boat Dealers, yacht brokers, marine service centers and repair shops all have the same risks from undesirable employees.
Wouldn’t you want your customers to know that your employees had undergone a background check?
Boat owners expect the employees that have access to their vessels and their valuables to be totally trustworthy. No boat broker or dealer wants to see unfavorable complaints about their business posted on the web.
Boat and yacht thefts arising from the collusion of a “Get Ready” employee with vessel access or a dealership manager, title clerk, cashier, F&I or boat sales person can result in major inventory losses in boat sales and repair dealerships.
Losses arising out of employee or manager theft, embezzlement, credit card fraud, harassment, workplace violence and other crimes can bring costly and even disastrous financial consequences to a dealership, it’s employees and it’s reputation.
Marine industry businesses know the cost of a “Bad Hire” is incalculable….
FBI statistics reveal that the overwhelming majority of all thefts from dealerships are connected by some aspect of employee involvement.
These facts alone dramatically illustrate the need for a thorough and comprehensive pre-employment background screening program that includes a quality nationwide state and Federal criminal record background check for all applicants.
Clearly, a quality employment background check screening program is an employer’s first line of defense in avoiding losses altogether.
And, sometimes it provides the best and perhaps only defense in a negligent hiring claim.
Dealers also know that “Word” gets around….
