A background check can be valuable for a variety of reasons. Background screening helps eliminate uncertainties in the hiring process and provides due diligence. Also, the information PeopleCheck will provide you can help eliminate the possibility of a negligent hiring suit, since an employer can be held responsible for the unlawful acts of an employee when it fails to conduct a background check and the employee has a prior criminal record.

Additionally, background checks help screen out unqualified applicants, save time and money that can be wasted in recruiting and training the wrong applicants, and reduce the incidents of theft, sexual harassment, and other workforce problems.

On average, in U.S. businesses, at least half of all new hires don’t work out, with replacement figures around:

  • $7,000 for a salaried employee
  • $10,000 for a mid-level employee
  • $40,000 for a senior executive
