Comprehensive pre-employment screening is critical to protect against hiring incompetent or dangerous people who can destroy your workplace; therefore it is important to test your background check vendor.
Below are some considerations.
- Try two or three firms to evaluate their timing, accuracy, and breadth of research.
- Ask who is doing the work and who your contact person will be.
- Ask what your vendor recommends for your industry, company, and the tiers of employees being considered.
- Ask how your vendor ensures the accuracy of records found.
