Why RCMP Criminal Reports Are Important?

In Canada, a Criminal Background Check is a mandatory process for most employers. Certn allows employers to hire trusted candidates faster. The reasons to conduct a Criminal Background Check are:

  • Protection of your people and organization
  • Lowers risk of a bad hire
  • Maximizes the opportunity to hire top talent
  • Follows company regulations
  • Satisfies SOC 2 and PCI compliance requirements

Save Time & Money

With the average bad hire costing the employer $25,000, Criminal Background Reports are an important piece to the onboarding process. Certn minimizes the risk of theft and/or liabilities. We Save employers and candidates time and money with the fastest; most accurate Criminal Background Check process in Canada.
