Personnel Screening Policy
- Originally Published:

Background checks are an essential part of the hiring process for organizations or positions which handle financial or security-sensitive data or engage in operations which depend upon a thorough vetting of the individuals involved. These checks can mean the difference between reliable employees who can be trusted with confidential material and processes or possible risks to the organization by disreputable individuals. It can also establish that prospective employees possess the required academic credentials or experience, and limit an organization’s legal liability insituations involving complaints of negligent hiring practices.
Personnel screening involves analyzing the background of company applicants to ensure they are a creditable fit for the role in which they intend to work. This may entail analysis of criminal records, credit history, employment/academic verifications, job skills and other criteria.
