There are many companies out there that specialize in being background check experts. Their main function is to dig deep into an applicant or current employee’s past to help make a realistic determination in the hiring process.
Unfortunately, even these background check experts can miss out on finding a critical piece of history. As we have seen in some of the more tragic recent events, major companies whose employees need extremely high levels of security clearance have missed something big in their pre-employment screening.
So why spend the money and take the risk of outsourcing your background checks? Well, if the big guys can’t always find everything, what makes you think you can do better? Do you have their resources, time or their technology to more thoroughly conduct these background checks?
I know that I don’t, and realistically you probably don’t either. This is not a testament that sometimes even the background check experts can fail. Rather this is a realistic look at how hard it really is to conduct thorough background checks.
These are the people who have nothing to do in their day but to follow up on leads, contact out of county or state jurisdictions and run traces on work and address histories. They can track known acquaintances and family who might be liabilities if a potential employee gets sucked into their outside influence.
I am much more willing to let the experts spend the time to be as complete as possible because I know that I have a better chance of missing something than they would.
