Avoid the Unexpected Using Pre-employment Background Screening
As an employer, you have a lot of responsibility riding on your shoulders, and it’s crucial that you do what you can to avoid unnecessary liabilities. Of all your assets, a reliable workforce is among the most important, so you want to make sure you choose the best candidates during the hiring process .Here at ARCpoint Labs in [location], we can help you do just that. Using our services, we can help to ensure you are able to effectively provide the following:

Taking a proactive stance is key and can save you hours of frustration and a lot of money. By simply requiring a background screening prior to employment, you can get an idea of a job candidate’s ethical standards to ensure they line up with your business’s mission statement.
Information Available to Employers
It’s important to carefully consider the types of information requested on your company’s background check as you can sometimes cross the line when it comes to discrimination. Our staff can help you determine what information is right for you, and just some that we can provide include:
- Criminal Record
- Credit Report (including bankruptcies)
- Driving Record
- Past Employment References
- Education, Certifications & Licenses
- Child Abuse and Neglect Records
- Military Records
- Physical Capacity Assessments
We advise our clients not to request information that doesn’t have a direct correlation with the job being hired for. Furthermore, negative information should not be an automatic reason to turn down employment as this can cause you to overlook a highly qualified candidate who may very well have learned from their past mistakes. Instead, use this information as a way to inquire as to how the candidate has overcome the situation.
