Pre-Employment & Infinity Employee Screening
When you are a business owner or you’re in charge of making hiring decisions, running background checks on potential employees is an absolute must. We will conduct a criminal history search on an applicant, as well as determine whether or not your prospective employee has entered into any financial judgments.
Many employers are taking advantage of a new and emerging trend that recommends the continuous monitoring of employees’ backgrounds, in addition to the still-standard pre-hire background check. Many forward-thinking businesses and organizations recognize that a current employee could become a risk after being hired without the leadership or management’s knowledge, thus necessitating periodic checks on employees.
To address these concerns, many businesses now require regular screenings of their workforce to reveal any potential changes that may have occurred since their hiring that could pose a risk to the organization, and often retain the services of a background investigator for the process. An employer armed with updated background information is then afforded an opportunity to monitor his/her employees more closely. Continuous monitoring of an employee can be of value to both the organization and the employee him/herself by giving the employee in question the support they need to continue thriving on the job.
Personal Relationship Background Checks
