Searching for a background screening provider is a careful, thorough process. There are a number of important characteristics that help with the selection.
Sources of information for the verification – Reputable screening providers go straight to the source, procuring records from employers and educational institutions, licensing bodies, courthouses, database and record repositories is the most accurate means of verification.
Quality Assurance - Your selected screening provider should have an established quality assurance process in place. Investigators, data, and final reports should all be properly monitored with proven methodologies.
Data security- Check what data protection procedures are in place in the company, not only on paper but also on ground, and whether these are being audited regularly by the BGV service provider.
Scalability- It is important that a company have the capability to suddenly scale up in case required.
Compliance – Methodologies and information should be completely compliant with all necessary compliances. Reliable employment screening providers procure information in strict accordance with these laws and regulations, reporting information that you can actually use to make legal and effective hiring decisions.
International capabilities – Your reports accuracy is in question if your screening service providers resort to using third parties if your candidates had been located or educated or had worked in different parts of the globe. What is the capability of your service provider in language expertise and knowledge of cultural protocols.
Experience – Your service provider should have at least five years of service experience. References will give you good and important indicators of a provider's reliability and record of customer service.
Understanding of your industry - You should also be careful to work with a screening provider with clients in your industry sector.
