When you enter any relationship, whether personal or business, you have a right to know exactly who you’re dealing with. A background check is a way to find out information about a person’s criminal, commercial, educational and financial history. It can tell you what a person has done in the past by authenticating the information provided.
Employment background checks are one of the most frequently used screening processes. They provide employers with the evidence they need to make informed decisions about the people they employ and be confident that an individual is exactly who they say they are. You may think that a quick visual check of a passport is enough to verify someone's identity, but how would you know if it was forged or altered?
If you’re thinking of renting out your property, hiring someone, or just have questions about a person’s suitability, one of the things you’ll most likely want to do is background screening. This can help you find out the facts about your new business partner, tenant, employee, volunteer, nanny or dating partner. For example, is your new business partner’s CV almost too good to be true? Was your tenant really living with their parents for so long? Why does an employee have an unexplained gap in their job history? These are just some of the questions we can get answers to.
Some people have the idea that the checks are carried out in a similar way to what they see in the movies, where someone goes through your rubbish and scours your Facebook page in order to dig up any little bit of dirt possible! But, that's not really how a professional background check is supposed to work, there are other methods, from comprehensive database searches to asset tracing.
