EmployeeScreenIQ’s 2013 Employment Background Check Survey Report is Hot Off the Presses!
March 13, 2013
Last week, EmployeeScreenIQ released the recording of our webinar, “992 Heads are Better than One: Balancing Applicant Rights & What Employers Need To Know” reporting the findings of our 2013 Employment Screening Trends Survey. And now…we have the survey report hot off the presses! The report includes findings from hundreds of HR professionals in various industries across the United States, who responded to our survey at the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013.
As presented in our webinar, EmployeeScreenIQ’s key findings from the survey include:
- Criminal convictions are not deal breakers
- Disclosure of criminal history/honesty from candidates is important to employers
- Employers screening social media as a part of the background check–and why this has seen a widespread decrease
- Screening environment with EEOC changes–before and after the latest guidance
Download the survey report today to learn additional insights from the survey, such as what HR professionals said about resume distortions, background screening companies with accreditation and the types of criminal records that disqualify candidates for a job.
