Global Background Checks
International background checks
The global talent pool is at your fingertips. Confidently screen candidates with diverse backgrounds to find the best hires.
Here’s why you need global background checks
- Connect to diverse talent on a global scale
Globalization, outsourcing, and the rise of remote work have led to businesses hiring both international and local workers. An increasing number of workers have work, life, and study history abroad. These diverse professional experiences and accreditations need to be validated – especially for senior roles.
- Strengthen your employer brand with a standardized hiring experience for all candidates
All qualified candidates should be treated fairly. Verifying international and local experience creates consistency in your hiring process and builds a trustworthy employer brand.
- Protect against negligent hiring claims
What happens when a worker causes harm to another individual? Negligent hiring claims can arise when employers cannot demonstrate proper due diligence when evaluating a worker’s fitness for the job. At a minimum, international candidates should be screened for criminal, employment, and educational records.
