What background screening checks are necessary?

Posted by Ryan Howard on Tue, Mar 10, 2015


A human resources manager is tasked with hiring the right people for the right positions. They are also under the gun to make sure the applicants meet the requirements of the company's background screening policies. Recruiting, reviewing resumes and interviewing are challenging enough. Wouldn't it be nice to know exactly which background checks to run by every type of job profile?

  • Applicant Identity Checks
    • Identity Verification
    • SSN Trace
    • Address History
  • Financial History
    • Credit History Report
    • Credit Summary
  • Substance Abuse
    • Urinalysis Drug Screening
  • Criminal Searches
    • National Criminal Background & Sex Offender Search

Depending on the number of types of screens a hiring manager may need, running all of these screens on all of your applicants can be quite expensive. We work with you to determine which screens to run per employee profile or job description.
