What is meant by background screening?

Answer

Background screens (or checks) are a way for employers to verify information about an applicant and/or current employee, getting a comprehensive understanding of who they are to ensure they make a safe hire. For many employers, a background screen is usually conducted as a simple pre-employment process, but depending on the industry and position they can become quite complex. Background screens can typically include employment/education verification, driving records, credit reports, or even social media in some cases. When combining products to create a custom program, employers can better maintain compliance and meet industry standards.
