What is Criminal Background Check?

Criminal Background Checks are an important sub-set of Employee Background Screening – used to establish whether a potential employee has a criminal record. Criminal history or brushes with a crime of any sort – is a decidedly unpleasant aspect, and expecting a candidate to reveal it upfront is largely unrealistic.

However, every past criminal record or unlawful practice documentation may not make an applicant unsuitable for hiring, it is important that proper assessment is carried out in this regard – in order to ascertain the risk potential of hiring the said person.

Why go for Criminal Background Check?

Managing and maintaining organizational security net is one of the most important concerns for any business. While risk management against external threats, competition, and tumultuous business ecosystem is a given, ensuring internal safety is equally crucial.

The internal security risk magnifies every time a person is hired without proper screening. It is, thus, imperative that informed decisions, based the findings of reliable background screening processes, are made while hiring.

  • Potentially risky hires with serious criminal records may jeopardize organizational safety, confidential data/ records and overall work environment.

  • For businesses, the cost of taking on wrong or dangerous people can be too high.

  • Fostering trust amidst existing employees is a must. Knowing that only ‘Safe’ candidates are hired helps in creating a happy and safe workplace.

  • Organizations cannot take their reputation or valuable resources for granted – and a wrong ‘hire’ is capable of damaging these precious assets.
