Tips for Evaluating Your Company’s Background Screening Process

Periodic audits of this essential process ensure that it remains effective and compliant with ever-changing rules and regulations.

You use background screening to identify any potential problems for your company in an applicant’s past. It is a valuable tool for protecting your business, your customers, and your employees. However, if your background screening process hasn’t changed for a while it’s definitely time to re-evaluate. Periodic audits of this essential process ensure that it remains effective and compliant with ever-changing rules and regulations.

Look at Multiple Angles

While getting opinions from multiple parts of your business may seem like a hassle, it is necessary. Looking at your company’s background screening process from multiple different angles affords you the chance to make it work better for all departments. Input from human resources, legal, operations, security, and other departments can all offer valuable insight into your company’s background screening needs.

Designate a Background Screening Expert

To really help streamline the audit process, you can designate a background screening expert. This in-house person would research any and all issues in the background screening world and they can guide the audit to ensure its effectiveness.

Work Closely with Legal Counsel

In today’s legal landscape, any internal audit you perform could eventually become the subject of litigation. Work closely with your company’s legal counsel to ensure everything remains “above board”.

Keep Up with Background Screening Regulations

Rules and regulations for background screening have changed quite a bit in recent years, and the penalties for non-compliance can be quite steep. Make sure your company stays up to date as these rules and regulations continue to change, and change your background screening policy accordingly.
