Background Screening Trends & Practices

For the sixth consecutive year, EmployeeScreenIQ surveyed U.S.-based employers regarding their use of employment background checks. More than 500 HR professionals participated and boy did we get our money’s worth!

As with our previous surveys, the 2015 survey was designed to provide a reliable snapshot of:

  • How employers currently utilize employment background checks.
  • How they respond to adverse findings on background checks.
  • Their paramount background screening-related concerns.
  • And their practices concerning Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) responsibilities, Equal Employment Opportunity

Want to learn how are other organizations handling today’s tough background screening decisions? Read the summary report of our sixth annual survey, “Employment Screening in 2015: Background Screening Trends & Practices,” and LEARN:
