Purcellville, VA (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
Proforma Screening Solutions, a division of Lowers Risk Group, has published a new infographic that describes the types of information available to employers who choose to conduct comprehensive background checks on their employee candidates.
The infographic, Elements of a Comprehensive Background Check, provides employers with a list of recommended background information, brief descriptions of the content of each background check, and the methodologies used. Background research on job applicants may range from more traditional sources such as employment or education verification to more complex court records searches for criminal records. For certain positions, credit checks or professional credential verifications are also warranted.
Employers can use the infographic as a guide to the types of information available for background research, with application for designing background check procedures for specific jobs or job categories.
The challenge to employers is to devise screening procedures that promote fairness in the hiring process, are compliant with regulations, and also allow employers to paint a holistic picture about a candidate from which to make better hiring choices.
David Lowers, President and CEO of Proforma Screening Solutions, remarks, “Employers have been under increasing pressure to use background checks to manage risk and comply with various legal mandates. Fortunately, our ability to give employers accurate views of the backgrounds of their candidates, while instilling fairness in the process, means employers can feel more confident in their hiring choices.”
