Conducting a background check on a third party is an important part of a contract. This verifies that they are who they say they are and that they have no outstanding issues they have not disclosed. It includes credit, taxes, court judgments, and any crimes they may have committed. Employers, contractors and risk managers all must complete these checks to move forward. Unfortunately, most background checks are not integrated with existing HR, compliance and risk management. That makes the process more cumbersome and challenging.
The biggest reason that companies like to integrate their systems with background check provider is simple convenience. Whenever a new employee is hired or a new contractor is added to the system, the check is automatically completed. There is no back and forth with the provider and the documents are never lost. Instead, they are right there in the system without further work. If there is a red flag, the hiring manager will be notified.
When systems are integrated, they are also automated. The hiring manager or executive does not need to do a separate upload of the compliance system. They do not need to spend a lot of time examining results and they do not need to complete all of the paper work associated with the compliance check. Instead, this process is all done through a pre-arranged software process. Additionally, when future hiring decisions or contracting agreements need to be signed, the documents are conveniently stored and easily accessed. That makes everyone’s life a lot easier.
