Good hires are the backbone of any organization. It is extremely important to recruit only those candidates, who not only have a clean background image, but also have the requisite educational qualifications. Perhaps the best way to ensure this is by conducting a thorough background screening of the candidates hired.
But generally speaking, companies have been found wanting when it comes to conducting background verification. Either they do not believe in the screening process, or they hire an inefficient background screening vendor, that does not care to be meticulous and follow due diligence in conducting background verification.
Considering the above scenario, it is imperative that you select your background screening vendor very carefully. If the vendor doesn’t follow due diligence and doesn’t comply with regulatory guidelines, you can end up in a legal trouble. And if they take too long a time to make sure they are doing it right, you might lose good candidates.
An ideal background screening vendor is one that strikes a fine balance between due diligence and fast turnaround time, between quality of service and the price they charge for those services.
