Background Screening

Everything Employers Need to Know About Background Checks

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 have a variety of products that can be combined to create a custom program that helps you maintain compliance and meet industry standards.
