Criminal Background Checks
Despite what we see in movies and on television, there isn’t a single database of criminal activity that companies like iiX can use. It’s no surprise, then, that picking which criminal background check to run on a candidate can be a challenge for organizations that are new to this.
Affirmation is encouraging, and iiX received it in spades through responses to our annual customer survey. Almost 77% of our customers were likely to recommend us to a colleague, and a quarter rated our service as “superior,”1 thanks to prompt and personal attention, great results, and ease of use.
As a sales manager and a regional account executive, a worry I have to think about is coming across as less than believable to prospective customers.
So, you want to know more about the people spending 8-plus hours working alongside you... Do a Google search for “background screening” and you’ll retrieve 11 million results. Search for “background screening companies” and the result is a paltry 6.5 million links.
According to most state licensing agencies, is it acceptable to share a Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) requested for insurance purposes with an employer, or vice versa? If you answered “no,” give yourself a pat on the back.
A background check is, in general, a request for information about a consumer’s history. The review might look into a consumer’s employment history, driving records, any applicable criminal record, and may even include an evaluation of his or her credit report.
