wrongful arrestWhy does a company need to perform a background check?

 

The goal in any hiring process is to gain employees that you have confidence in their abilities and experience. However, things from a candidate’s past can fall through the cracks that can affect employment or your company’s reputation. Studies show that 3 out of 10 business failures are actually caused by employee theft, and that over half of all job applications contain lies. It is important to have a background check process in place to ensure you are hiring the highest quality employees.

Is searching public information or the internet a good background check?

 

While you should use free public records and internet research to verify candidates’ information, public information may not be accurate, since public databases are not obligated to update their information on a regular basis. A background check through our licensed private investigators from Radius Investigations is a more thorough check for information, including data that is not accessible to the public.
