It's Important to Know Your New Hires

Criminal checks, reference checks, and verifications are an organization’s primary means of acquiring information about new hires from sources other than the candidates themselves. A background investigation commonly works to determine whether an applicant may be unqualified for a job due to a criminal record, motor vehicle violation, poor credit, or a misrepresentation of academic or employment history. Although the past doesn’t necessarily define a future, it does tell employers an important story.
