Employment Background Screening for Today and Tomorrow
December 4, 2014
As Bob Dylan would say (or sing) the times they are a-changin’. From the workplace, to technology, to our own lives, we’re living in a time when change is inherent. And with ever-changing background screening laws and other screening requirements, employers should be prepared to face changes in the hiring process. So what’s step one? Create a flexible screening program with a trusted screening partner that can walk your company through necessary changes.
It was with future changes in mind that Dina Anzalone, Senior Manager of HR with Leviton, began searching for a background screening company. She knew that the screening program Leviton set up in the beginning would not look the same within a year or two, and because of that, it was essential to choose a partner that could adapt to the company’s needs over time.
How Leviton Built a Better Hiring Process with Background Checks
1. A Background Screening Program for Today & Tomorrow
While Leviton began its screening program with criminal background checks and resume verifications, they knew that they wanted a screening program that could expand in the near future. For example, as a global manufacturer, it was vital that they consider screening candidates on an international level. In addition, to improve its hiring practices and ensure continued safety in the workplace, the company considered a flexible and customized drug screening program a crucial factor for future success.
2. World-Class Customer Service
In addition to the ability to expand its screening program, another vital component was having the right people who could make the ebb and flow of the background screening experience a little easier. Because EmployeeScreenIQ’s team went the extra mile with every background check, Anzalone knew she could rest assured that Leviton’s background screening results were reliable and any changes could be handled by EmployeeScreenIQ’s client relations team.
3. Peace of Mind & More Intelligent Hiring Decisions
Another valuable component was knowing that EmployeeScreenIQ takes the utmost care in verifying background check results before reporting them to hiring managers. And ultimately, having the most accurate and comprehensive information on job candidates allows the company to make more intelligent hiring decisions. This sense of trust and security has reduced risk in the workplace and brought a higher level of security to its facilities.
