A la Carte vs. Packages: What’s Best for Your Background Screening Process

Posted by Verified Credentials on Aug 14, 2023 11:17:25 AM
Don’t you hate that feeling when you rush and forget something on the way out of the door? If you need the same things every time you leave your home, having everything all in one place, ready to go, can make the process easier. You could say the same could about your background screening process. Individual orders for positions you regularly hire don’t have to be time-consuming. You could even limit the risk of skipping essential searches. Creating custom background check packages is a great way to address potential inconsistencies with a la carte ordering. Having preset custom packages ready to screen candidate pools is like always having a to-go bag ready.
