Reduce Your Hiring
Risks

Hiring someone who is not qualified for a financial position can lead to unexpected expenses and additional hiring cycles. Poor hiring decisions could also damage your reputation. It is imperative to select trustworthy, capable candidates to represent your business. To help, we offer Custom Background Checks that can be tailored to suit any position. You can save them for future use to reduce your hiring risks.

Annual Background Screening For Financial Professionals

It's not always easy to find suitable candidates. When you hire a qualified individual, it is important to ensure they remain eligible for employment. In addition to thoroughly screening new applicants, we recommend annual screenings for current employees. Annual reports show you if someone on your staff has something new on their record, such as a criminal charge or credit-related issue. You can also request recurring Motor Vehicle Record Search for people who drive on the job or provide transportation to clients.

Are Your Employees Qualified To Handle Finances?

Your employees represent your brand. You rely on their skills, expertise and knowledge of the financial industry. A Pre-Employment (PEER) Credit Report is an invaluable tool when screening your candidates. PEER reports show you an individual's credit history, payment patterns, credit lines, bankruptcies and other relevant facts. They help you confirm that the person is responsible with their own finances before granting them access to your company's or client's assets.

FCRA Compliant Background Check Services For Financial Employees

The financial industry must adhere to numerous regulations, some of which impact hiring and screening practices. It is critically important to remain compliant with these laws. Establishing and maintaining a set of guidelines is a great way to plan ahead and protect your business.

People who work in financial positions may be required to have certain levels of education, licenses or other credentials. Backgrounds Online offers verification services that show you whether or not a candidate has all of the necessary qualifications. We are FCRA certified and NAPBS accredited, so you can rest assured that we provide fully compliant and industry appropriate background checks to help you make educated hiring choices.
