Global Screening Hub

Scale your global background screening program everywhere you hire.

The Importance of International Background Checks

Conducting a thorough background check on potential new employees is critical. But managing a successful screening program across different regions is challenging - you must understand compliance regulations and know which checks can be fulfilled in certain countries.

Partnering with a company experienced in global background checks can help your hiring team overcome a wide range of challenges more efficiently.

  • Consistent Hiring Standards - Protect your company, customers, and employees by establishing rules and processes across regions that align with your business objectives.
  • Risk Management - Maintain a holistic view of local compliance laws and regional privacy regulations.
  • Positive First Impression - A simple, straightforward experience allows candidates to submit information quickly, regardless of their location.
  • Single Source of Truth - Give your global team one consistent experience to interact with candidate data, submit screening orders, and review results.
