CLEVELAND, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 2014 presented more than its fair share of hiring challenges – and global background screening provider EmployeeScreenIQ wants to learn how human resource professionals navigated this often litigation- and legislation-riddled landscape. HR professionals, hiring managers, recruiters and industry experts across the U.S. are encouraged to participate in the company's highly anticipated sixth annual survey measuring trends in employment background screening here.
In its 2015 survey, EmployeeScreenIQ again sets out to capture the various influences on employers' hiring practices and how they respond when adverse information is revealed. What type of criminal history or resume discrepancy is egregious enough to disqualify a job candidate? How are employers handling job applicants when red flags arise? The threat of lawsuits over discriminatory hiring practices, complex and confusing "ban the box" laws, resume distortion and social media overreach are among the serious challenges that continue to vex the HR community when conducting employment background checks.
All survey participants will receive an executive summary of the results when they become available and the opportunity to win a $250 Amazon gift card. Last year, more than 500 hiring professionals took part in the EmployeeScreenIQ survey.
EmployeeScreenIQ helps employers make smart hiring decisions. The company achieves this through a comprehensive suite of employment background screening services, including the industry's most thorough and accurate criminal background checks, resume verification services and substance abuse screening. EmployeeScreenIQ is accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), a distinction earned by less than two percent of all employment screening companies.
