Background Checks: Balancing Speed and Quality

Background Checks: Balancing Speed and Quality


"Why is my candidate's background check still pending?"

This is a question that resonates strongly with HR managers and recruiters who are eager to onboard their newest recruit. In fact, 51 percent of U.S. professionals who responded to the survey for Sterling Talent Solution’s Background Screening Trends & Best Practices Report 2015 said their most significant screening challenge is the time it takes to complete background checks. Finding the balance between a comprehensive background check and a fast background check has become the focus of the screening industry as it stands.  Join TRICOM and Sterling Talent Solutions for our August edition of the Industry Insider webinar for a better understanding of the process by addressing:

  • Why some background checks take longer than others
  • Misconceptions of a “National Criminal Database” search
  • What you can do to help speed up the process
  • The balance between quality and turnaround time
