Does your organization have an active program that conducts reference checking on employees before they are hired?

Hiring a new employee can be a rushed process, especially if the position is a mission-critical one. But neglecting to follow through on pre-employment screening can be even more disastrous to the enterprise than having an empty seat for a few weeks.
