EMPLOYEE BACKGROUND CHECKS

Companies that do not utilize background checks when considering new hires are putting themselves at undue risk. Using Maryland Security Professionals to conduct a background check is considerably more cost-effective than hiring someone who steals or undermines the credibility of your business.

About Employee Background Checks

When hiring new staff for your organization or company, it is always better to err of the side of caution by conducting an employee background check. Bringing the wrong person on your team can damage the integrity and success of your business, and may even carry dire ramifications. While most businesses can handle the short-term consequences of engaging an underqualified candidate or individual who is later deemed a “bad fit;” few can risk bringing a dishonest or potentially dangerous employee in and jeopardizing the security of the workplace.

Protect your organization against bad hires

Employee background checks are becoming increasingly more commonplace in the United States. Investigating personal data about a candidate’s past is a tool used to identify red flags and negative information.

The reality is that you cannot find everything online or through “free” website services. The majority of concrete information — data that is legally attained — can only be procured through a professional firm that provides comprehensive checks using the appropriate legal channels. Founded in 2005, Maryland Security Professionals is a licensed, full-service security company that offers three levels of employee background checks, enabling organizations to effectively vet and screen potential candidates for criminal convictions, while verifying past education and employment, and other pertinent data required.

Many internet based background searches yield inaccurate reports that contain duplicate and irrelevant data, which completely defeats the purpose of an investigation. Moreover, the majority of these websites are not compliant with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
