Even the most seasoned HR professionals might be surprised to learn what they think they know about background screening isn’t entirely accurate. The truth is, separating fact from fiction is sometimes a challenge and this could affect the decisions made when selecting what goes into a background check program. 

In this program, Clare Horvik of Verified Credentials will address the nine most common myths about background checks. Using real-life examples and inside research, we will challenge several commonly held beliefs that are used to determine what, how and why certain background checks are used. 

Discover the real story about:

  • When product mix-ups happen for similar names or sources 
  • How you could miss records by using only limited information or identifiers
  • What misconceptions about sources may leave gaps in screening results
