What to Look for in the Results of Employee Background Checks

If you are an employer conducting employee background checks, then you may have a vague expectation of what you will end up seeing in their results. You’ll find out more about respective candidates job histories, any legal infractions they may have been involved in, and whether their references give them as positive reviews as they might hope. Nevertheless, all of that information at once might seem to blur together; it can be difficult to know what is important and what is less vital to your particular circumstances. But with help from AIR Pre-Hire, you can learn what to be on the lookout for with your employee background check results.

What Should I Prioritize in my Background Check Results?

The results of the background checks you’ve ordered have come in, and you’re sitting down to evaluate them all. What should be the top thing you’re looking for? For one thing, we would suggest trying to determine, above all else, whether there seem to be patterns of behavior indicated in these results. One bad review or red flag in an applicant’s past may catch your attention, but it does not necessarily define them as a worker, or indeed as a person. If you see that, in contrast to that one thing, they have generally accumulated a positive, productive-sounding list of accomplishments, then you know they might still be a viable candidate. However if the opposite is true, and you see not one but many instances of worrisome behavior, then you know this is an application that it might be better to pass over. Another aspect you should be on the lookout for is anything an applicant did not mention in their interview or resume, but that you would like to know more about. This gives you topics and questions to start out your next discussion with the applicant, and potentially some interesting stories!
