Selecting a Background Check Provider

Selecting a Background Check Provider

A background check provider verifies information about a hiring manager’s candidate. Besides finding top talent to fill the ranks, a hiring manager also has to establish what risk the candidate could bring to the company. They have to be leery of fabricated resumes, questionable education claims, and hiding a criminal history.

It’s critical to not just get a background check but to get a reputable background checker.

Why a Background Check

If you want to hire with complete confidence, the pre-employment background investigation provides crucial info. It can be as simple as confirming identity. But it can also reveal what a candidate’s trying to hide, like claims of degrees or criminality in another state.

What Makes for a Top Background Check Provider

Here’s what to keep in mind when checking the checker.

  • Use an agency that complies with the Fair Credit Reporting Act. You don’t want to make shaky decisions that will lead to legal complications. Thus, the FCRA ensures candidates consent to background checks and will see the results.
  • Do not be fooled by the size of a company. The checker having two employees or 200 won’t mean you get a better report. Most background check companies use the cloud to conduct business and implement the same legitimate practices.
  • Work with a company that lets you review reports digitally, has preset plans, and/or a la carte (fitting your budget and needs) services.

The background check provider company should be:

  • Communicative
  • Flexible
  • Accurate
  • Budget-conscious
  • Lastly, familiar with your industry

The company should have:

  • Accreditation
  • Customized service
  • Competitive pricing

You also want a background check provider that performs extensive services, such as investigating DMV records, performing drug tests, and has a process for disputing the report.
