“It’s true, background screening is complex. Deciding which type of check to run to make sure a candidate is the right one can seem like a daunting task. However, background screening is a vital step to ensure the right people are in the right roles. From employment verification to criminal record checks, it’s a proactive way to add a layer of risk mitigation into a company’s hiring process.”
My question is – how much further do we go with this to provide companies with as thorough a screening process as possible. I’ve been getting differing opinions with respect to trolling through social media – adding on psychometric assessments (in addition to the face to face screening etc.). Would love to hear others’ opinions.
I’m of the mindset that we should go as thorough as possible within our means – and that too can change depending on the position the person is being hired for.
