Background Screening | DVLA Check | Complygate

Background checks are the most effective approach for a company to collect information about an applicant. Employers can use background screening to find out a range of information. They may, for example, be attempting to evaluate if a candidate matches the position's requirements. They may not be a suitable choice if they have a criminal conviction, poor credit history, traffic offences, or are lying about their education or job background.

Background screening of potential candidates and existing employees is now more common than ever. Although, they are effective most of the time, employers still face several problems like compliance issues, safety issues, etc.

These issues can be avoided if employers invest in a Background screening process that is well-defined and is easily customisable depending upon the situation or the role for which the screening is being conducted.

Having a good Background Screening Process can benefit employers in:

Saving significant time and money

A good process ensures that employers don’t waste their time and money on conducting every background check available, which can turn out to be costly. Rather, it promotes conducting checks that are relevant to the role. For example, performing a DVLA check for a finance role is irrelevant and only adds to the cost and time spent.

Avoiding any compliance issues

A good background screening process should prioritise regularly updating the employer’s screening policies to avoid any compliance issues. Every state or country has different laws regarding background screening. Not being able to adapt to these laws by making a change in policies, is what leads companies to face unnecessary charges and penalties.

Ensuring workplace safety

Companies which have a good screening process can easily ensure workplace security by avoiding negligent hiring, i.e., hiring candidates regardless of the fact that they can be a potential threat or do not fit in certain criteria. Often times, negligent hiring is a result of a case where the screening process is unnecessarily lengthy and complex.

These were just a few benefits employers can get if they have a good, well defined background screening process. To learn more about background screening, you can book a 1 on 1 demo with Complygate and find out if it is the best background screening provider for you.
