What actually goes into different screening services globally, such as verifications, criminal records, etc., can vary a lot from country to country and vendor to vendor. Historically, consumers of these services often took them at face value with little diligence done on them. However, as the importance of conducting robust screening has increased, there has been an increased desire to understand how the sausage is made.
This content is focused on explaining what can make up different background screening searches, globally, and why they vary. The ultimate goal is to make you an educated consumer of global background screening, so that you can make informed decisions in selecting, using, and selling these services. The goal is NOT to explore compliance issues, or tell you which services you should or should not use.
