Most companies screen employees for red flags in their background once, at the pre-hire stage. In the near future, the new normal may call for an annual background check, which can alert HR to potential risks from staff, reducing the prevalence of insider threats. The Annual Background Check will provide employers with a valuable tool to best evaluate their risks and ensure they place their employees in the most appropriate positions.
Post-hire threats can be both external or external, meaning you may find information on an annual background check that could hint at the potential for an employee to damage to your company from within, or do damage to your company through misconduct while working in the field. In either event, annual background checks will offer some insight into the potential risk your company may be facing.
Annual background checks can be tailored to your specific needs and the employee’s level of trust within the company. For instance, a company accountant could have their credit report, bankruptcy records and civil litigation records searched annually to identify issues that may hint at the potential for them to possibly defraud your company out of money to solve their personal finance issues. A driver for your company may only need their criminal history and their driving record checked annually to make sure they are still suited for the position they hold.
It is important to note that if you are looking to conduct annual screening on a specific employee, without screening others who hold the same position, you may be opening yourself up to a potential discrimination case.
