Whether you are a Fortune 500 company, a landlord, or a small business owner, the importance of screening potential employees or tenants must be considered. Background checks and screening services provide peace of mind. They can significantly reduce the risks of damage to your company name and personal liability. Choosing a background check provider can be a daunting task. Here are some things to look for in a reputable provider.
Look for Accredited Firms
The first step in looking for a screening provider should be to verify that a reputable, trusted authority in the screening industry accredits a provider. One of the more known and respected accreditors in the professional background screening industry is the Professional Background Screening Association(PBSA). The PBSA holds its members to a high standard. It ensures that all screeners provide quality screening services through their commitment to compliance, integrity, and service to their members.
Better Business Bureau
Another step in finding a reputable background check provider is to look for accredited companies in good standing with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The BBB serves as a consumer watchdog to ensure that consumers and businesses can make informed decisions about who they choose to do business with. Moreover, BBB gives businesses a letter-grade rating and checks up frequently to ensure that they are operating ethically and with the consumer in mind. Businesses can be easily verified to be members by visiting the BBB website and searching for a business’s name.
Industry and On-the-Job Experience
Finally, in the search for an excellent background check provider, businesses should look for firms with decades of providing excellent accredited services to their clients. The background screening industry is highly competitive, and companies that provide poor service tend to pop up and disappear regularly. A firm with an established reputation and has been in business for years generally offers excellent service to its clients.
