Employment Screening 101: The Recap-Part 20
May 5, 2008
My twenty part series on Employment Screening 101 has come to an end! The theme of the series aside from the obvious is accuracy. Answering the question “do you conduct background checks on your employees” is usually an easy question to answer. The difficult question is “are you screening your employees properly?”
Through this series we have taken a look at most facets of a quality employment background check. We started with the first step, The Social Security Number Trace and journeyed through the different types of criminal searches. Beyond criminal records we discovered the many areas of a resume that need to be verified and ended with some very specific types of background investigations. It is hard for me to quantify which particular search is more important than the other; to me they can all be equally important depending on the job responsibilities. Albert Einstein once said “If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.” It’s more important than ever to look beyond the job application and truly verify every aspect of the candidates’ history.
Every presentation I have ever given has started with a famous quote by Aldous Huxley “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” At employeescreenIQ our passion for what we do is exemplified in this quote because, we know the facts and that’s why we exist!
