Background screening services, a vital and recurring step in the hiring process, is vital to maintaining workforce integrity and safety.It provides the insight needed to reduce risk and improve profitability by helping businesses safeguard transactions, identify trustworthy customers and partners, and hire qualified employees. In essence, it delivers valuable insights that lead to smarter and more informed decisions.
Hiring the most qualified applicants is critical to the success of any business. With the number of ‘me too equally qualified’ candidates in good numbers, it becomes all the more important to ensure that a step like background screening does not become a speed bump in the hiring process. If a top applicant is contemplating two offers and it takes too long for a background screen to be completed, there is a risk of that applicant taking the other offer. Given the sheer volume of background screening that needs to be done, the execution, accuracy and success, depends to a large extent, on its turnaround time.
Background screening becomes even more potent when it is integrated with an ATS (Applicant Tracking System) or any other hiring management solution. According to HRO, in US, 83 percent of best-in-class organizations indicate that they use an ATS, and 59 percent of the top-performing groups integrate their background screening solution at least partially with their ATS. Integration not only offers a secure way of transferring information, but also executes critical steps such as exchange of accurate information, automated status updates and with pre-set rules, maintains the required level of data privacy. Integrating background screening with technology has resulted in some impressive outcomes in terms of the quality of talent hired, reduced turnaround time and also in the improvement of the processes by reducing time and cost to hire.
The advent of a global workforce has led to an exponential increase in risks related to talent acquisition. With connectivity and operations reaching beyond geographical boundaries, organizations are seeking candidates from all over the world. While millions of people are being hired, knowing who is right and who is not is a gargantuan task. It is a massive undertaking and an organization can either invest a substantial amount of its time in tracking the antecedents of candidates it is employing or run its business. Billions of dollars are lost world over due to unverified employees who sabotage crucial job positions and are eventually responsible for the stunted growth of an organization. Technology and migration make it quite easy to misinform employers in order to gain undeserved employment. Unfortunately in India, there are no stringent laws to discourage people from presenting fake resumes even though the implications for the company can be disastrous. In fact, the problem is so rampant that closely working with pre-employment and background verification agencies is a cost companies and organizations are glad to bear rather than face monumental losses later on.
The background screening industry is still in its nascent stages in India. Even though a simple exercise of verifying qualifications, passport details, previous employments and addresses of candidates can help weed out majority of the bad stock, there is an urgent need to verify the remaining, so as to avoid legal and financial problems. Therefore, choosing the right vendor is a business critical decision.
Here are the do’s and don’ts of identifying the right partner:
Database vendor or actual investigator?
Some agencies provide information from the database on either one-on-one basis or a monthly subscription. Instead of genuinely investigating the case, they only rely on their present database.
Unrealistic pricing options?
If a background verification and assessment service does not have a clearly defined pricing structure, it means that they normally compete on the basis of pricing rather than on the quality of service.
Unrealistic turnaround time?
Unless records are updated, it is humanly impossible, at least not with contemporary technology, to dig out all relevant information about an employee within 24 hours.
