Cleveland — Jan. 3
EmployeeScreenIQ has extended the deadline for completing its third annual “Trends in Background Screening” survey to Jan. 9. More than 600 human resources professionals have taken the six-minute survey thus far, which measures background check scenarios from the discovery of inflated resumes to criminal histories.
All survey participants will be entered into a prize drawing for an Apple iPad 2 and will receive an executive summary of the survey results when they become available.
The insights gleaned from the research will also help EmployeeScreenIQ better understand the hiring industry’s challenges and shape future educational offerings such as webinars and white papers.
Drawing upon real-world concerns in the rapidly changing world of background checks, the new survey not only asks employers how they respond when adverse information is revealed about a job candidate, but also solicits opinions on topics like the legitimacy of online education and social networking sites as potential job-seeker landmines. It also measures concerns about the screening process itself and employers’ criteria for choosing a provider.
