Background Check is a service that helps employers to easily and quickly verify certain information about their potential employees. It is an authorised service and regulated by law.
The check focuses on a candidate's personal history and past activities, starting with full name, social security number, past and current employer details, education, and many other details that may have been omitted, voluntarily or not.
Background checks often include enquiries about credit history, criminal record, personal references and even driving records.
The employer may then learn of any criminal prosecutions or warnings, or simply be reassured about facets that could affect the company's job performance or customer satisfaction.
The information retrieved can then be used to make an informed employment decision.
If you hire employees without doing a thorough background check on them, the consequences in terms of money, resources and image could be very damaging. Before hiring, especially in sensitive roles, it is necessary to ensure that an employee is completely trustworthy.
An effective investigation, carried out by experienced and trained investigators, can be crucial in making the right decision and avoiding unpleasant consequences.
