Your background screening program is not something you can set and then forget. Auditing your background screening program is essential to ensuring that you hire only the best candidates and offer the highest standards of safety to your workforce, customers, and partners.
Why Do I Need to Audit My Background Screening Program?
Both the legal framework regulating background screening and background screening technology itself evolve constantly.
New laws are passed every year at all levels and technology improves in leaps and bounds. In today’s world, neglecting your background screening program for a few months can mean losing a decisive competitive advantage that will put you one step behind your competitors.
Auditing your background screening program helps you stay compliant with any new legislation while allowing you to leverage all the advantages of the most recent background screening technology.
Will It Take Long to Audit My Background Screening Program?
Time is a common (and understandable) concern for business owners and hiring managers.
First, consider that delaying a thorough audit of your background screening program is likely to backfire—the longer you put it off, the longer it will take to bring your program up to speed.
Also, keep in mind that a capable background screening partner should be able to complete an audit within a reasonable window of time, with minimal or no downtime for any of your departments.
At the end of the day, the benefits of auditing your background screening program are well worth your time:
- Identify potential risks
- Improve compliance
- Weed out obsolete policies
- Enjoy the benefits of new technologies
- Streamline existing processes
- Increase efficiency
