What is Background Screening?

In today’s society, it is necessary for businesses to protect both their companies as well as their employees. This has resulted in an increase in the use of background screenings as part of the hiring process. Background screenings are often referred to as a first line of defense for businesses. Having a screening process in place enables employers to make more informed decisions when hiring, and potentially prevent workplace risks such as theft, fraud, abuse and violence. Screening programs can even protect against negligent hiring.

Employment Screening Services (ESS) provides comprehensive background screenings services to companies nationwide and internationally. ESS keeps a strong focus on compliance and abides by all FCRA regulations. By combining industry experience of over 15 years with the latest technology, our solutions deliver fast and accurate results. ESS offers a broad range of different types of background screenings, such as county, state and federal criminal searches, employment and education verifications, and other screenings like social security reports and motor vehicle reports to name a few. Screenings can offer further insight into a candidate’s performance, qualifications, and character. Certain positions may require additional screenings depending on the job responsibility and level of involvement within your company. Our services are available as single searches or packages can be set up specifically for your company.
