Businesses have no shortage of policies in place to protect their customers and their bottom line. Especially as companies grow, they safeguard what’s important. And yet, when it comes to background screening, many employers are missing the full picture.
Research from HR.com has revealed that nearly all U.S. companies, 96 percent, enlist the expertise of a background check during the hiring process. However, after employees are hired, that attention to detail shifts elsewhere: spending limitations, privacy training, travel requirements, standard protocol for reporting unethical situations, and the like. However, as much as employers build trust with employees, there’s a risk in running one check and never looking again. A growing number of companies are establishing post-hire monitoring as a reliable step to ensure that necessary information, like license status, driver records, and criminal activity, is checked on a regular basis.
