Based on HireRight’s 2017 Employment Screening Benchmark Report, here are some grave concerns we’ve unearthed and tips to avoid them with proper background checks, including:
The Specter of the Un-screened Executive – are your new execs and new members to your Board of Directors being screened? With top-level access to your most sensitive data, it may be worth your consideration.
The Curse of the Fabrication Phantom – a terrifying number of job candidates may not be telling you whole truth. See how many!
The Potential Terror of Not Rescreening – things change, and the employee you screened when they first came on board may have encountered issues since then that could impact your organization. Consider rescreening them.
The Volunteer from the Great Unknown – lots of organizations employ an extended workforce, including volunteers and vendors, most of whom aren’t screened. And that could be scary!
