Employment Background Checks

What are Employment Background Checks?

An Employment Background Check is a comprehensive report that can inform potential employers of multiple areas of an applicant's background/history.

What are employers looking for in a background check?

The most common information gathered from a background check includes criminal activity, verification of previous employment and education, identity verification, driving records, and some employers will also review an applicant's credit (most commonly done if they're applying for a job at a financial institution).

Why should you do Employment Background Checks?

Background checks ensure that you're keeping your organization safe and hiring top-quality candidates to help grow your business as they can inform potential employers of personal details (positive and negative) that candidates might not like to share on a job application.
