Taking a No Shortcuts Approach to Background Screening

Nick Fishman

No Shortcuts

An Illinois man recently sued both his former employer and their background screening provider because they errantly reported that he was a registered sex offender, and didn’t take the time to ensure that the record actually belonged to him. The employment background check misidentified the individual, a male in his twenties, as a man in his fifties who had been convicted of sex crimes in states where he had never lived.

Unfortunately, stories like this fuel the perception that employment screening companies don’t care whether they report accurate information or not—and that employers blindly make hiring decisions without allowing candidates to refute the information. However at EmployeeScreenIQ, it further validates our core belief that smarter screening means intelligent hiring.

Over the years we have developed a best in class screening process which focuses on delivering the most comprehensive, accurate, and compliant background checks in the industry. And it’s no secret as to how we’ve gotten here. In fact, we can sum it up in two words: “No Shortcuts”. No Shortcuts is more than just a tagline or fancy marketing campaign. It is the foundation for how we operate our business. This mantra is employed at every level of our organization so that employers have everything they need to make an informed hiring decision.

But rather than read about our No Shortcuts philosophy, we thought you’d prefer to hear (and see) about it from our team.
