Top Reasons Organizations Should Conduct Employment Background Checks

The success of a company relies on its people.  With increased concern about workplace violence and negligent hiring liability, more and more organizations are performing employment screening and background checks on their applicants. According to the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), 56% of information supplied by applicants on resumes contains one or more significant discrepancies. A thorough and comprehensive background investigation of criminal records, employment records, and identity verification helps businesses mitigate their liability and make the right hire.

We have conducted extensive industry research and based on this research, have compiled the Top 10 reasons why businesses should perform employment background checks.

  • Increased applicant and new hire quality
