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.
