Cleveland (PRWEB) April 03, 2014
Nearly 600 human resources professionals opened up to EmployeeScreenIQ about how they use background checks to make hiring decisions.Their candid feedback is detailed in the company's just-released, fifth annual survey of U.S. based employers.The new report looks at how companies manage the process of employment screening, their practices concerning Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) guidance and candidates' self-disclosure of criminal records, and how they address adverse findings.
The 2014 survey report,"The Unvarnished Truth: 2014 Top Trends in Employment Background Checks" confirms that employers continue to rely on background checks to protect themselves, their workforces and their customers. The 26-page report examines a range of potentially contentious issues facing hiring organizations, perhaps most notably the impact of criminal records on hiring and the practice of asking candidates for self-disclosure as even more states and municipalities adopt "ban the box" legislation.
Human resources professionals representing a wide range of U.S. organizations that use background screening companies completed the survey in late 2013/early2014. The results are available for complimentary download here.
Among the top findings:
"The EmployeeScreenIQ trends survey has become the benchmark many employers use to evaluate their background screening policies and practices," says Nick Fishman, chief marketing officer of EmployeeScreenIQ. "This year's survey provides a unique cross-section of opinions and insights from a diversity of organizations and is a must-read for HR professionals who want to see what their industry peers are doing."
