Hiring a Refreshment Solution: What You Need to Know
When narrowing down search results, consumers can be swayed by the reviews, star ratings, and social media accounts of the companies that offer solutions to their problems. This common occurrence, while inherent with our modernized ways of research, leaves consumers vulnerable to unsafe hiring practices. It’s convenient to assume that a company who promotes itself loudly online must engage in background checks and routine security improvements…but is that always the case?
To help you weed through the Google results, Perfect Choice has put together a checklist for seeking a refreshment solution:
1. Liability Insurance
It is extremely important that your refreshment provider has liability insurance for their employees and work vehicles. Consider the following scenarios that could arise from an uninsured vendor: a slip and fall on your company’s premises, a vehicle collision within your property lines, or an expired product fed to one of your employees. If you have hired a vendor without liability insurance, you could be held medically and legally responsible for the outcome of these situations.
2. Worker’s Compensation
Worker’s compensation differs from liability insurance, only covering injuries a vendor’s employee obtains on your premises. This provides medical expense coverage and any wage loss as a result of that employee’s injury. The two types of insurance – worker’s compensation and liability insurance – must be acquired by the prospective refreshment vendor to account for any and all necessary coverage.
3. State Registration
Verify that your refreshment company is registered with the state and has all the licenses of operation. Choosing to work with properly registered companies promotes fair business practices.
4. Employee Background Checks
Always work with a company that has run background checks on their employees and incoming hires. Background checks are an essential part of the hiring process, and refer to a broad spectrum of information, not just a criminal record. When a business chooses to conduct background checks on their employees, they showcase responsibility for their business and for the overall safety of their clients.
– Is your prospective refreshment solution on the rise with emerging technologies?
– Compared to their competitors, is their cost reasonable?
– Do they offer free consultations of your space prior to becoming your provider?
