International Screening Solutions
Global Background Checks
Talent knows no borders. To make intelligent hiring decisions in a competitive global economy, employers require high-quality, fast and compliant international employee screening services.
Challenges and Approach
Global background check challenges are unique to every country and jurisdiction. These challenges include a prevalence of paper-based records with scant access to electronic records, legal and cultural obstacles, differences in records repository structures, variations in records accessibility policies, as well as restrictions on cross-border movement of private, sensitive information.
A-Check's approach to international employee screening is to utilize local resources well versed in local procedures. A-Check's Global Alliance Researcher Network, carefully developed over more than 30 years on the cutting edge of employment screening, is comprised of established professionals with a proven record of expertise in their countries' investigative and reporting procedures.
International research is reported in real time through A-Check's extranet systems. Global Alliance researchers receive service requests and return completed investigations as well as supporting documentation utilizing PartnerDirect, A-Check's real-time global research network system.
