For more than two-thirds of U.S. employers, background checks have become an integral part of the hiring process. Today, nearly seven-in-ten employers conduct employment screening prior to hiring a job candidate. Only a small portion of those companies attempt to conduct these screenings on their own, largely due to cost, manpower needs, and the need to comply with existing legal requirements. As a result, most companies rely on professional employment screening to perform vital background checks on new hires. Here are five reasons why:

The Need to Focus on Core Competencies

By hiring professional employment screening experts, companies can keep their focus on core competencies. Human resources and hiring managers have enough to do without worrying about background checks. When they outsource that activity, they can better manage their time by dealing with other important concerns – like compensation, benefits, training, disciplinary activities, and so on.

Complex Compliance Concerns

There are rules governing background checks. For companies, conducting these checks requires familiarity with legal requirements – something that few companies have time to learn. Professional screening eliminates that learning curve, since those experts are already familiar with the laws governing access to background information.

Access to Resources and Tools

Professional investigators will have a well-developed system for accessing resources and getting the information you need. They know which questions to ask and which tools to use to obtain the right answers. That simplifies the process and enables their clients to conduct background checks with ease. All your company needs to do is select the right background check provider and let them know what you need. Then sit back and wait for them to deliver the information you’ve requested.

Experience and Expertise

Experience and expertise are crucial for any investigative service. When you rely on professionals, you can rest assured that their experience and competence will provide results that are appropriate for your needs. As with any investigation, background checks require a certain skill set that just cannot be developed overnight, so it just makes sense to trust the experts.

A Better Work Product

Finally, we come to the most important benefit and reason for relying on professional employment screening: the final work product. The background check that you rely on for your employment decision needs to be the best product possible. That means that it needs to answer the questions you’ve posed, and those answers need to be as accurate as possible. Sound hiring decisions should only be based on an honest appraisal of accurate information, to ensure that candidates are treated fairly and to protect your company’s interests.
