We provide many types of background services. We are always happy to help you create a background check to match the criteria you are looking for.
Background investigations and reference checks are employers' principal means of securing information about potential hires from sources other than the applicants themselves. A background investigation generally involves determining whether an applicant may be unqualified for a position due to a record of criminal conviction, motor vehicle violations, poor credit history, or misrepresentation regarding education or work history.
Have you ever wondered what a background check for yourself might uncover? This is is a great opportunity to find and deal with background issues that may come up when applying for housing or jobs.
Typically involves the search of the following records: National criminal databases, Criminal court records, National and state criminal records, Sex offender databases/registries, National and global terror watch lists.
Employers commonly ask candidates to furnish references from the firms where they worked previously. The reference check is a means to ascertain qualities such as attitude to work, professional competencies, ethics, leadership abilities, teamwork, etc. The reference check also helps verify claims of past accomplishments and professional contributions made in previous companies.
The social media check provides information that helps form a 'rounded' assessment of the prospective hire. Suppose a candidate is posting hateful, sexist, homophobic, or racist comments online. In that case, such information gives a fuller picture of the candidate's thinking and makes it easier to come to a hiring/rejection decision. This check is done in addition to the regular background and reference checks. The usefulness of the adverse media checks can be assessed from the fact that a survey in 2014 done by CareerBuilder revealed that 51% of the firms, which commissioned a social media search on candidates, discovered reason(s) not to hire them. The same survey also found that 33% of respondents became more likely to hire the candidate based on the information revealed during the social media check, and another 23% were actually led to hiring the candidate.
