Forgoing the background check requirements to save time can put a business at risk. A proper background screening process can help a company confirm or reveal information about the job candidate and allows employers to address the risk that arises among an active workforce. A comprehensive continuous monitoring system should be considered to keep information up-to-date. The practice of performing a screening after hiring and throughout employment can help identify and mitigate insider risk among the workforce. It also enables employers to hire from a wider pool of applicants who might have been overlooked during a pre-hire screen and also allows employers to identify “yellow light” events and provide counseling, training, and other forms of support.
