Business Myth Busters: No Such Thing as an Instant Background Check

In today’s instant gratification economy, it’s easy to see the allure of the “instant” background check. However, good things come to those who wait. An instant background check could do more harm than good by putting your business, employees, and customers at risk.

Myth: An instant background check provides the information to make a good hiring decision.
Truth: An instant report pulls information from a national database. Critical information may be missing, which could cost the company time and money later on. At MYB, Inc. we conduct a National Criminal Offender Search, a County Criminal Search, or a Statewide Criminal Search. Depending upon the job position, we also verify education and complete a financial responsibility check.

Myth: Instant background checks can save time and money.
Truth: At MYB, Inc. our goal is to be efficient and accurate. We strive to provide comprehensive background checks in a timely manner and give you the information necessary to make an informed hiring decision. All of our background checks also comply with state and federal laws, a key factor to ensure your business is not held liable.

Myth: Background checks are one-size-fits all.
Truth: Every job requires different skills, certifications, and experience. Every position in your company is unique. Shouldn’t your background checks be customized to the position you wish to fill? At MYB, Inc. we educate our clients about the types of background checks available. We discourage clients from running unnecessary checks and encourage them to add on ones that may be especially helpful.

Myth: I can understand a background report on my own.
Truth: A complete and comprehensive background report contains a lot of information. At MYB, Inc. every client has a representative that can walk them through their report and answer questions.
