Need Help Evaluating and Selecting a Background Screening Company?

background screening companiesHiring a background screening company for your employment screening program seems like a fairly straight-forward task. If your goal is to simply ‘check the box’ with the bare minimum requirements, it can indeed be a simple endeavor. But if you’re like many employers today, you have come to the following realizations:

  • Organizations compete on the basis of talent. As such, the quality of your hiring decisions has a clear and direct impact on your organization’s ability to compete.
  • It’s not enough just to ‘check the box’. Employers are being held to exceedingly high standards when it comes to ensuring the safety of co-workers, customers, and the public at large. Safety begins with the people you hire.
  • Regulatory attention around employer hiring practices is growing. Anti-discrimination, data protection, appropriate use of criminal records and credit reports, among other issues must be addressed. The practices of your background screening provider must be sound.

It is these realities, and many others, that make hiring the right people — and having the right processes in place to do so –so vitally important.
