‘Shortlisting suitable candidates out of the lot is a strenuous task. Some profiles fit best into the positions. While some appear promising, some seem suspicious. Jumping into a conclusion while choosing candidates on their face value is not a right approach as they might be misleading. A comprehensive background check of a candidate based on employment history, educational checks, and criminal records can keep your workplace safe.’
Background check is a process that companies conduct during the hiring process to authenticate the information provided by the candidate for right onboarding. Background verification involves multiple checks to validate past employment history, education records, employer details, identity checks, address checks, and much more. The background check usually starts as soon as the candidate clears all the rounds of the interview.
Background check is one of the top hiring trends to stay relevant in the market and meet compliance and data security regulations. With the changing work environment and new data protection laws to prevent identity frauds, companies cannot afford even a minor discrepancy in the resume. One wrong candidate and your reputation earned over years go for a toss.
Top reasons to conduct employee background check
Shocking moonlighting instances have made companies to have strict background checks in place to track if their candidates are involved in multiple employments and assert a degree of control with revised policies.
AuthBridge’s industry’s largest negative and proprietary databases enables companies to conduct criminal record checks nationwide, across state, city, county, etc. to find out if there is any criminal history associated with the prospective hires.
Hiring employees based on falsified information can create problems for the employer as they won’t be able to perform their duties or aren’t qualified to do so. Conducting background checks can help you gather the accurate information, spot CV frauds, and establish safety at the workplace.
Candidate’s background check ensures that the applicant is suitable for hiring or not and based on that can make a final decision.
Due to increasing discrepancies in information in job applications, companies should run a background check on employees before onboarding them. The major employment sectors such as IT, healthcare, finance, automobile and others do mandatory background checks to filter out fraud applicants.
However, sectors like retail, restaurants and other organizations are less strict about background verification in India, mostly for entry-level positions. Irrespective of the sector, every company must have a strict background verification process in place of candidates to save time and money, avoid negligent hiring lawsuits, and detect criminal records.
When going from entry level to senior level, the verification also goes beyond the regular background checks for in-depth investigation. From keeping tabs on social media activities to unfolding criminal records/affiliations, and much more, companies go an extra mile for leadership hiring and stay compliant to various global AML and other regulatory standards like FCPA, UK Bribery Act, Prevention of Money Laundering Act among others.
Further, it is not just seniors, but even juniors who worked under them are part of the background check interviews conducted before an individual is hired at senior level.
