Areas of Common Background Screening

Background checks are becoming commonplace in a variety of areas. Within each area a background check fulfills a specific need: verify income, confirming previous employment and education, checking criminal history and sex offender registry. But, ultimately, background screening is about mitigating risk and protecting at-risk populations.

Adam Almeida, President and CEO of states: "Background screening has become one of the most important tools in risk mitigation and is used across a broad spectrum of employment and volunteer areas."

From (Aug. 08, 15):

Melissa Sorenson, executive director of the National Association of Professional Background Screeners, said screening was uncommon for employers 30 years ago, but the popularity of background checks has risen significantly in the last 15 years.

Sorenson said the Internet is a big factor, along with amount and availability of information, decreased costs of screenings and a rising desire among employers for risk mitigation. (1)


Volunteer screening is critical as any individual interacting with at-risk populations, that is the elderly and children, should be background checked. Information collected on Volunteers need not be overly invasive or expensive, rather it draws data from public sources."

Volunteer checks can include parents working with school aged children, camp counselors, coaches, as well as caregivers with the sick and indigent.

Almeida states: "Volunteering is a rewarding experience and a volunteer background check can add to that experience by potentially vetting individuals who may not be appropriate for volunteering.

Typical reports may include:


Tenant Screening is a relatively common practice conducted by landlords and property managers of properties large and small. Yet there are a number of situations where tenant screening may not be as thorough.

Increasingly, people hold onto homes when they purchase a new primary residence. That secondary residence becomes potential income through rental. This is a key area where tenant screening may not take place. Some homeowners that become landlords may not realize the relative ease of conducting a tenant check.

Almeida states: "Tenant screening is another relatively simple task. Third-party tenant screening companies, such as, provide services for landlords with single properties at attractive prices."

Typical reports may include:


Every day millions of people fill out job applications and most expect a background check as part of the hiring process. From the smallest store to the largest retail chain, from manufacturers to the Federal Government, background checks are a key and central part of the vetting process.

Certainly the workers and middle-management are screened, but are C-level personnel reviewed to the same extent?

Almeida states: "Ensuring the C-Level executive is fully vetted remains a primary responsibility of corporate human resources departments. They demand a higher scrutiny, especially as risk comes to the company, as whole, and prevention is paramount."

From (Sep. 02, 15):

Data from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) obtained via the association's global fraud survey, indicates cases of C-suite fraud accounted for 19 per cent of all cases, with a median loss of $500,000 per instance. (2)

Almeida states: "In the end employment screening serves as an excellent tool for hiring managers, landlords and property managers, and volunteer groups. Utilizing a third-party background or tenant screening agency, one can gain a valuable partner in risk mitigation." is a third-party background screening company that can provide a low-cost solution to all screening requirements. From pre-employment to post-hire screening, as well as volunteer, caregiver and nanny checks, provides background screening services across a broad array of industries.
