How do Credit Reports Help the Hiring Process?

When you go about hiring a new employee, being as thorough as possible is the best way to ensure that you are selecting the right person for the job. One way that employers, particularly those involved in the financial industry, are checking into applicants’ histories is through credit reports. By hiring a third-party service, such as AIR Pre-Hire, to conduct your credit reports, you can ensure both accurate information and compliance with federal law. But how exactly does a credit report lead you to the best hiring decision possible?

First of all, it is important to note that while credit reports do provide very important information, it does not necessarily have to make or break an applicant’s future. Credit reports can give you a clearer idea of the applicant’s financial history; you should be on the lookout for things such as a bankruptcy or a poor credit rating. Apply this information to the other facts that you have found through conducting background checks: do all of the facts come together to indicate a general lack of responsibility and reliability on the part of this particular employee, or is there perhaps a logical explanation behind the negative information on the report? Either way, a credit report will either help you weed out an undesirable employee, or to not discount a very qualified employee who simply might have had financial difficulties at some point in his or her life.
