Background Check Need to Know

What is a Background Check?

Pre-employment background checks are pivotal to ensuring your business manages its risk and makes the best employment decisions. Whether you are a Fortune 500 company or a small business, a background check for employment guarantees that you know the full story before you hire.

Background check services monitor everything from criminal records to validating a candidate’s professional licenses and qualifications. At Checkr, we use our innovative, AI-powered platform to conduct fast and efficient checks before you hire. Background check companies have a crucial role in helping you with your hiring process. While you could do your own pre-employment background checks, it’s time-consuming and labor-intensive.

Adverse Action

Advanced AI-Driven Background Screening

We believe in a higher standard of background checks. With traditional background check companies, getting all the information you need to make an informed decision can take days, or even weeks, to accomplish.

Checkr believes in a better, fairer hiring process, and advanced AI-driven background screening empowers us to do just that. AI uncovers and classifies data in a fraction of the time it used to take. Where other employment background check companies are still manually looking over job candidates, we are running checks in a matter of hours.
