Edge Information’s Tribute to Employers on Saint Patrick’s Day

By March 15, 2020 No Comments


Every 17th of March, people all over the world celebrate the life of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of the Irish people.

The people of Ireland celebrate the feast of Saint Patrick to honor the life and commemorate the death of the man who among many things is legendary for being known all over Ireland as the man who drove snakes out of the entire country.

In the corporate world, a different kind danger exists in being snake bitten by hiring candidate that may fall into a troublesome category such as drug abusers, thieves, sex offenders or perhaps someone unqualified for a position.

These “snake bites” can be difficult to identify because they may disguise themselves as harmless, educated and even skilled individuals when they are applying for a job.

Some employers unfortunately find out too late that they’ve made a hiring error. Once the damage has been done, your organization is left to face the consequences of feeling snake bitten by lost recruitment and training time and costs, legal claims, lost wages or even a tarnished corporate image.
