Contractor and Vendor Screening

The use of outside contractors and vendors to handle staffing flexibility is growing more than ever. Businesses increasingly want to apply the same hiring standards to this group of people.

While industry statistics show that over 85% of businesses in the United States are running background checks on their employees, most companies do not carry over the same practice for their contingent workforce. backgroundchecks.com can offer you a web-based platform that is specifically designed for organizations that use contractor's and vendor's employees that must be cleared for work. You simply work with us to design the screening program you want to implement and your vendors and contractors will then pay for their own background checks via credit card. This provides you with elevated compliance with no money out of pocket.

Whether your need is to screen vendors, contracted or co-employed personnel, or other affiliates, your solution for background checks on this contingent workforce will be implemented according to your specifications and with your branding to provide a consistent experience.
