The stats from 2020 are in! They reflect the tumultuous year that we have all experienced. Overall, we have seen significant growth in demand for background screening in the APAC region. We’ve compiled all the highlights (and lowlights) in this report to shine a light on the trends from last year – and to predict where we’re headed in the new year.
Overall background screening requests have risen dramatically with an 85% increase in total searches conducted in the region.
All categories of searches have seen increased traction in 2020 – employment history searches, education searches and civil litigation searches were close to doubling the searches conducted in 2019, while searches on global sanctions lists almost tripled the figure from 2019, showing an increased interest in candidates’ mobility and history on the global employment market.
