Employment Background Check
Making the right hiring decision for every position within your company is critical to your business success. Finding the right placement isn't easy. The negative consequence of aking the wrong hire cans significantly hinder production, lower team morale, impact customer relations ad jeopardize the integrity of your brand. Additionally, the cost of replacing an employee that doesn't work out can be significant, including requirements, training, and salary, as well as a variety of hidden costs.
Not all employment background checks the same
Most employers run pre-employment background checks when they hire someone. Even companies that don’t screen regularly agree that they are a helpful way to build a successful workforce. The news is filled with stories that show malpractice in the workplace when it could have been prevented with a simple background check. As an employer, it would be convenient if you could hire any company to conduct pre-employment background checks and be confident that the safety net will provide you with all the tools to make an informed hiring decision. Unfortunately, that is not the case.
The problem is that not every employment background check is the same. There is no one source or mystical database where all background screening professionals go-to for consistent, up to date criminal record information. In fact, the concept of “background checks” is incredibly ambiguous and doesn’t speak at all to the quality or accuracy of the information produced by conducting one. A hiring official’s due diligence cannot reach its full potential unless the background checks he or she orders utilizes the most foolproof techniques and channels to find and verify criminal records.

How Does It Benefit Your Business?
Employers need to know that while there are many ways to perform an employment background check, some of these ways are a waste of time and resources—so some companies could take advantage of you.
A quick Internet search for “employment background check” will produce many companies. Be wary of claims to provide a “free” or “immediate” background check on anyone in the country. Sometimes companies perform searches with limited or incomplete records, using sources that are available to the public. The information that you get from these companies may not be very reliable.
Not all employment background checks are the same. Working with a PBSA accredited ﬁrm translates into higher quality background checks, better customer service, stronger client education, and less risk for your hiring decisions, as well as supporting your commitment to minimizing risk in the workplace.
