Comprehensive background checks help to…
Protect Vulnerable Populations
The US Department of Health and Human Services reported in a 2016 study that 9.1 of every 1,000 children are mistreated or abused in out-of-home-care. Of the children reported 28.5% were younger than 3 years old.
Elders and individuals with physical or intellectual disabilities are also at high risk for mistreatment or exploitation. The National Council on Aging reports that “approximately 1 in 10 Americans aged 60+ have experienced some form of elder abuse”. The number is even higher for adults with intellectual disabilities, a 2013 study done by the Disability and Abuse Project reported that “over 70% of people with intellectual disabilities reported that they had been victims of abuse”
Ensure Accurate Reporting in the Hiring Process
Background checks are crucial not just for finding information on criminal or questionable activity, they are also imperative for revealing discrepancies in reported data. Did you know that “ ADP reported 46% of employment, education, and/or credential reference checks conducted revealed discrepancies between what the applicant provided and what the source reported” as reported by StatisticBrain.com.
More alarming still is that 70% of 18,000 people polled reported that they would lie on a resume to get the job they wanted.
Proven Screening is committed to reducing these statistics through the use of high-quality background checks. We want every employer to be confident that they are keeping vulnerable individuals out of harm’s way while also avoiding costly hiring mistakes.
