Pre-Employment Back Screening Services

Helping Employers in Tampa & Sarasota Choose the Right Applicants

It is necessary for employers to run pre-employment background checks on all applicants applying for positions within their company or organization. Unfortunately, many applicants will lie about their qualifications on a resume or will make false claims during an interview. From those trying to hide their criminal record to those lying about their employment history, pre-employment back screening can help employers weed-out deceptive applicants and find the most qualified person for their company. In fact, roughly 40% of background checks reveal at least one major discrepancy with an applicant.

What Are the Benefits of Pre-Employment Back Screening?

Benefits of pre-employment back screening include:

  • Quality New Hires: One of the first things employers notice after using our comprehensive background screening program, is a significant increase in the quality of effort and output from new hires. Acquiring talent is a struggle for both employers & law enforcement agencies, and finding qualifying candidates who provide accurate information is a huge part of that struggle.
  • Safety & Security: Workplace violence can also be reduced through pre-employment back screening. When we screen applicants, we uncover details about past incidents that might indicate behavioral habits that could potentially be a threat to your business or the safety of your employees. This includes finding out about incidents like minor assaults, domestic violence, threats, harassment (including sexual harassment), stalking, and physical and/or emotional abuse.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Looking into the background of applicants can help ensure that your business or organization is in compliance with state and federal regulatory requirements. This can help you avoid having to pay expensive fines or other legal issues.
  • Reduces Negligent Hiring Risks: When you hire a reckless employee, your company can be directly liable for their negligent actions. Companies that don’t screen their employee’s background are potentially open to a lawsuit when negligent incidents occur.
  • Lowers Employee Turnover: Running a background check on new employees will dramatically reduce your employee turnover rate. The more information you have about new hires, the easier it will be to choose employees that will stick around and help grow your business or organization.
  • Reduce Drug / Alcohol Abuse: Screening for substance abuse is a great way to combat absenteeism, tardiness, employee turnover, attitude issues, embezzlement, low productivity, crime, violence, and more.

During Our pre-employment background screenings, we provide the following services:

  • Psychology Screening
  • Polygraph Examination
  • Military History
  • Credit History
  • Driving History

So why do background checks on new employees? Pre-employment background checks will help your company or organization be more successful, which can lead to greater profits and increased productivity. Through background checks, employers are able to reduce fraud, the high cost of employee turnover, wasted benefits, and the cost of training and developing new employees.

Pre-screening applicants also helps you choose employees with better work habits, attitudes, policies, and practices. Overall, pre-employment screening services enhance workplace attitudes and professionalism.
