Some employment background screening is performed in house, meaning employees at the company oversee the process.
Other background screenings for employment use the help of a third-party to research the employee or candidate. The actual screening process can involve different type’s resources to help the employer find relevant information about the employee or candidate. In the past, background checks for employment typically focused on confirming the facts presented by the candidate. Nowadays, the screening process is expanding to include more information and help confirm that the candidate will truly be a great addition to the company’s culture.
