Why conduct a background check as part of your pre-employment screening process?
Here are some of the reasons:
- The average cost of recruiting, hiring and training an employee can range from $3,000 to $25,000 depending on the position. A comprehensive background check helps ensure your investment and typically costs less than 1% of your hiring expense.
- In a limited job market and poor economy, resumes often contain false or misleading information. While this varies by industry and position, if not uncovered prior to hiring, it can be very damaging to your company’s reputation. Additionally, with new laws associated with DUI or DWI (Driving Under the Influence or Driving While Intoxicated) approximately 10% of all Criminal Record Searches now reveal some level of criminal history.
- Lastly, irresponsible hiring practices result in jury awards that routinely cost employers and their insurance companies millions of dollars to settle. This does not include legal expenses. A well thought out pre employment screening program usually helps prove that proper due diligence was executed.
At Integrated the average turnaround time for all background checks and pre-employment screening reports is approximately 2-3-business days. Regardless of the size of your organization, Integrated can develop a cost effective pre-employment screening solution to manage your hiring needs.

The business of exercising due diligence and pre-qualifying individuals must be measured against a company’s tolerance to risk. Why conduct pre-employment screening checks? 1) Will the courts or my insurance carrier acknowledge that I exercised reasonable and appropriate due diligence commensurate with common hiring practices; 2) Can my business tolerate the cost associated with a bad hiring decision and at what cost is my company willing to spend to avoid unnecessary insurance claims and litigation. If the answer to any of these questions is no, then pre-employment screening is not an option.
