YOUR (BUSINESS) CONSTRUCTION CREW

HOW TO SCREEN POTENTIAL VENDORS AND CONTRACTORS SO THAT OUTSOURCING WORKS FOR YOU

A big project requires a strong crew. For this task, rebuilding the small business economy, you may need to get help, not just from employees, but from external sources too. If your vendors fail you, it can severely affect other parts of your business and poorly chosen contractors can put your entire enterprise at risk.

So how do you make sure you're choosing the right people to work with? Whether you're hiring another business as a vendor or an independent contractor, it's always a good idea to do background checks on people you're working with. {see} Digital Magazine has developed a match game that includes just a small sampling of the kinds of screening you should do to protect your business and your employees. Even if you're hiring a vendor company, you should do a background screen on the people with whom you'll be working. (For example, if you're an apartment leasing company hiring a plumbing company, you'll want to run a screen on each plumber who will be going out to people's homes as well as the plumbing company as a whole.)
