Background Checks

Criminal History
Although most businesses have high standards, they are also challenged by limited resources. In addition, they frequently need to move quickly when the time comes to make a hire. Each applicant and new-hire can add a new business and security risk for an organization. Fortunately, performing background checks on applicants and employees is an effective way to discover these potential issues that could affect your business.

Whether you are with a Fortune 500 corporation, a mid-size organization or a small business, VES offers smart, award winning and comprehensive background checks that enable you to focus on what’s most important – managing your organization’s risk and making the best employment decisions.

Our innovative and on-demand solutions put you in the driver’s seat, providing you with the features and services required to efficiently and effectively manage your background screening program and make smarter decisions quickly.

Drug Screenings

• Laboratory based urine and/or oral fluid drug testing

• Physical exams and wellness services – DOT and client specific exam protocols

Our Add-On Solutions work with you to understand your compliance requirements, policy needs and to discuss testing options that fit best with your company so that you can select a solution that meets and exceeds your organization’s needs.  HireRight’s clinic network includes more than 20,000 locations including patient service centers, third-party collection sites, and mobile collectors. Even more important than the number of locations available to our clients, our user-friendly platform allows you to electronically schedule drug, alcohol and wellness services in a single order.

Employment Verification
Unfortunately, not all applicants are totally honest about their qualifications and may make some slight or even egregious misrepresentations of their educational and professional backgrounds. According to recent studies, 88% of respondents reported that background screening has exposed a person who lied on a resume.  Verification services, which include checking employment histories, educational degrees, and professional licenses, can help employers ensure that applicants have the qualifications and backgrounds you require for an open position.

VES Recruiters are experts in procuring exactly this type of background information from all over the world, with extensive experience in obtaining verification data from former employers, educational institutions, and licensing bodies.  Verification services help avoid the potentially disastrous consequences of hiring someone who does not meet the stated qualifications for an open position. An unqualified new hire may not be able to perform necessary job requirements, which could negatively impact individual and organizational performance, not to mention overall revenue.
