Employment background investigations are no doubt critical to the hiring process.And, due to their time-consuming and labor-intensive nature, some companies either shorten the process or completely skip it altogether. In some cases, the capability of an employer to conduct a background check in the Philippines is prevented by limited resources and access to dependable human resource staff. Lack of staffand the necessary expertise combined with varying degrees of corruption within organizations make it difficult to truthfully assess certain types of employees, as well.Thus, employers are at risk of hiring individuals who are unqualified or have suspicious and/or shady backgrounds.

Do you want to save your company from such a dilemma? Here is a short guide to conducting background checks.

● Determine what needs to be checked. Pre-employment screenings should typically cover criminal records and credit reports. Educational backgrounds, previous and current addresses, and the identity of a person must also be verified. Searches may include verification of credentials, reference checks, and drug test results. In some cases, bank records and lifestyle checks may also be conducted, too.

● Understaffed? Outsource the process. Small organizations that lack the manpower or resources to handle their own background checks have the option to hire reputable private investigators and security risk management specialists. This makes it easier (and in many ways cheaper) to run a background check in the Philippines.

Employment background investigations require the expertise of individuals who understand your organization’s needs and the kind of people you are looking to hire.
