A background check or background vetting is the process of looking up and compiling criminal, commercial and financial history of an individual. Vetting has become an integral process very often requested by employers on job candidates. This is especially used when the candidate is seeking a position that requires high security or a position of trust such as in a school, hospital, financial institution, airport, and government. Results of background vetting typically include past criminal history, employment verification, and credit history.

  • Background vetting information include criminal records, educational background, employment history, driving records, vehicle registration, credit records, ID Number verification, court records, personal references etc.

 

  • Some applicants attempt to inflate the numbers in salaries from their previous employers hoping to get a higher salary from the new company they are applying at. Vetting assists in preventing individuals who resort to unethical means. 

 

  • Vetting also reveals criminal records, which are very important pieces of information to use for assessing an applicant. Avoiding  appointing someone who has had a criminal offense of fraud as an accountant, likewise an individual who has had records of child sexual offences to work in an environment that offers children services.

 

  • A crucial step in the hiring procedure / maintaining ongoing trust with individuals entails an honesty maintenance plan, doing background checks on a regular basis.

 

  • Studies have shown that about 75% of candidates lie on their CV or during their job interview. Some people will say anything just to get a job. Even if it means lying about critical detail such as age, education background or employment history and whether they have ever committed any crime.

 

  • With the increase in illegal drug abuse it results in theft, poor work performance and other serious HR issues. Employment checking should not only be an optional step in the hiring process but required and mandatory.

 

  • Checks can be done on existing staff to establish if they have not received a criminal record or blacklisting during their employ. This is done in industry such as diamond and gold mines, logistic warehouses, retail outlets, hospitality, medical and manufacturing industry. These checks tell you if you can trust the individual or not. However remember that a person NOT having a record does not mean they will never in future commit a crime.

Most Employers don't have the time to verify information / references.  To mitigate the risk we recommend a pre-employment criminal record and credit check. Employing the wrong person can damage the image, reputation and integrity of the company.
