Candidates are not always who they appear to be! Some people are great at interviews and have the ability to hide who they really are. A thorough, professional background check can really shed light on your candidate’s character.
How do you determine which screens you need? Evaluate the tasks your employees do. For example, if your employees drive company vehicles, you will need DMV screen. If they need specific professional licenses, certifications or education – those will all need to be checked. Some background screens are general and useful for all employees, such as Social Security verification, Nationwide and County Criminal checks. Your Account Manager can help you decide what makes sense for your company. Don’t forget to periodically reevaluate if there have been changes to your company.
Make sure your candidate has a great experience during the vetting process. One of the top reasons companies lose candidates is their screening timeline is too long and they do not stay in communication with their candidate during the process.

All while continuing to collect your paycheck, of course! READ MORE
