Many companies in the United States are increasingly finding themselves hiring individuals from oversees. Most often employers fail to realize that many elements of their domestic pre-employment screening program can be conducted on these candidates. Typically, global screening consists of verifying education and employment based on information supplied by the applicant and some type of criminal check in the host country and, or country of origin. These types of background checks are critical due to the nature of most of these positions. BIS often finds that firms hire IT professional from oversees locations. Having an individual with access to all your firms’ critical data without proper due-diligence could prove to be a critical failure. In addition to servicing our US client base with their Global Screening needs, BIS also services foreign customers for their US and Global Screening requirements. BIS is one of six US pre-employment screening firms that is Safe Harbor Certified by the US Department of Commerce. BIS Global Screening Services does not operate as an international investigative agency.
