Intellishield recommends credit and identity verifications as part of your company’s employment background check procedures. These processes will help establish the identity, address history, and personal responsibility of your job candidates to ensure that they’re saying who they say they are, and ultimately, allowing you to hire the right person.
Performing identity verifications as part of your company’s employee background check routine adds a higher level of security for your hiring screening process. These procedures ensure that the person you’ll ultimately hire is not using a stolen identity. Verifying the identity of your candidates is important when hiring for any type of employee, and it’s even more crucial when you’re hiring for work-from-home positions, remote workers, and freelancers.
On the other hand, credit checks are crucial when it comes to processing candidates for finance-related positions or for companies in the finance industry. This procedure will ensure that you’re only hiring people with strong fiscal responsibility. The process involves a review of the candidate’s credit history, which will provide insights into the person’s responsibility on his/her financial obligations.
Employment credit and identity checks are important procedures in order to reduce your exposure to embezzlement, theft, and most importantly, lawsuits over negligent hiring. These processes also help you make a well-informed hiring decision based on reliable, accurate records.
