Europe

Varied Tactics Enable Smart Decisions

Every European country is different. Each European country has a different level of experience and understanding of employment screening, as well as specific cultural expectations regarding the practice. The range of languages across the continent also adds an extra layer of difficulty when it comes to hiring and screening.

With offices in the United Kingdom, Poland, Estonia, Russia, HireRight are confident on delivering background screening across Europe and the wider world. We fully understand the types and level of information available within each country, as well as the various legal requirements with which we must comply.

Although the European Union has adopted a wide range of laws intending to establish increased consistency among the Member States' economic and political systems, significant variations remain in Member States' national laws on matters that have not been legislated by the EU.

The differences of each country will affect what screening services we can provide, but in general HireRight will deliver some or all of the following services:

  • Criminal record checks
  • Employment history verifications
  • Academic verifications
  • Reference checks
  • Professional qualifications and membership verifications
  • Credit history checks
  • Directorships
  • Identity documentation/passport checks
