When hiring a background check provider, it’s important to make sure that you are creating a partnership with a company that will be able to assist you in all aspects of the hiring process. With hundreds of background screening companies to choose from, make sure you’re receiving the information necessary to have accurate and efficient background checks. Below are a few tips from Background Check Express when considering a new screening provider.


Do Your Research: The National Association of Professional Background Screeners has a  comprehensive list of accredited firms, as well as firms who are members and working through the accreditation process. While it may seem as easy as googling “background check companies” in your area, but don’t forget to do some research to see what organizations or conferences they’re involved. A company that is active in local and national screening organizations are often more compliant with national and local laws due to educational opportunities.


Ask Questions: After you’ve found someone you think you’d like to work with, reach out to get more information. Ask questions and get to know the company. You can do request further information at this point and do some price comparison to see what package each company offers that would most suit your needs.


Read the Reviews & Ask Around: Just like retailers and restaurants, users will review their experiences with a background check company. You can also ask friends and family if companies they work for use a certain provider. It always helps to hear the reviews first hand and create a business partnership based on a referral.
