Keeping a safe environment in the workplace is just as important as protecting your home against threats. Employees, whether tenured or newly-hired, can have an impact on your company’s reputation if not carefully selected. Hence, performing a background screening is an effective way to discover potential risks that may affect your business.
What is background screening? Why is it important? And how can it affect your business if not properly conducted?
Background screening is the process of collecting information such as criminal reports, employment history, and financial data of an individual. It is often conducted during the pre-employment process, especially in companies where trust and security are highly required, like government agencies, schools, cash-in-transit companies, financial institutions, and the healthcare sector.
In the 2018 survey sponsored by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), the results indicated that 95% of companies continue to conduct employee background screening as part of their pre-employment process. The research revealed that public safety—protecting the employees, customers, etc.—is the top reason why human resources professionals conduct the screening. Other reasons include improving the quality of hires, regulation requirements, protecting company reputation, and preventing and/or reducing theft, embezzlement and other criminal activities.
It is crucial to have a systematic and efficient screening process, that’s why many companies depend on private investigation firms to handle the task for them.
In Malaysia, MVD International is the leading licensed professional private investigation agency operating since 2003. MVD ensures that their investigators and detectives carry out their job in full confidence while maintaining confidentiality on all obtained information. They specialize in employee background screening and private investigation.
Employee Background Screening
It is indubitable that great employees make great companies. This is the reason why most job hiring processes are intensive and strenuous.
Most employers conduct pre-employment screenings of job applicants and even continuously check on existing staff during their work. In this process, the employer investigates an applicant’s background to verify the accuracy of his or her claims and to look into any possible unwanted history. Workplace harassment and violence, fraud, and corruption are just some of the commonly reported crimes that affect the company’s image and financial stability.
To mitigate these risks, MVD International provides employee background screening services to weed out the bad apples.
Here are their common pre-employment screenings:
