Most organizations screen for red ﬂags in their employees’ work, criminal, or even ﬁnancial history before they come on board. The issue is that those checks speak to only a moment in time. If an employee commits a crime after being hired, the business may never ﬁnd out.
Continuous screening is generally more accessible today than it was even two or three years ago due to advances in technology. Periodical background checks are feasible now because more police departments and court systems have moved to online records systems.
Some industries mandate regular screenings, but more organizations are embracing the idea, especially those with access to vulnerable people or where one-on-one consumer access is part of the employee’s scope of work.
