Background Screening

ba·grawnd skree·nuhng

Verifying a candidate's education and employment history as stated on their application, alongside address, criminal verification and a reference check to make an informed hiring/retention decision.

Besides the above, employment verification may also involve tests to uncover behavioural as well as aptitudinal traits as a screening process to measure relevant abilities for the job. Talent acquisition experts must also conduct in-depth background checks to verify criminal records, driving records, educational and professional history to uncover issues that can pop us as a red flag. Whether hiring in-person or remotely, resumes cannot be the sole metric for hiring!
