Business Myth Busters: Should you re-screen current employees?

One and done! For many companies, the initial onboarding background check conducted during the hiring process is the only screening their employees receive. A comprehensive background check is a wise investment before hiring new employees, but should you re-screen your employees later in their careers, too? Discover the truth behind re-screening services.

Myth: The initial background screening tells me everything I need to know about my employees.
Truth: A thorough and complete background check completed by a PBSA-accredited company like MYB, Inc. is a great way to determine the best hire for a position. However, unless you re-screen your employee, you will not be alerted to new criminal records, a change in sex offender status, or an invalid driver’s license.

Myth: It’s too expensive to re-screen employees.
Truth: Typically, re-screening services cost less than your initial background check. “A re-screen usually focuses only on the current location and recent history. It’s an affordable tool that most companies should utilize more,” says Lauren Harrell, Director of Operations at MYB, Inc.

Myth: It takes too long to re-screen employees.
Truth: Since a re-screen focuses on the employee’s current location, most basic re-screen reports can be completed in 48-72 hours.

Myth: There’s no benefit to re-screening employees.
Truth: Re-screening your employees is a quick and easy way to check for any red flags that could result in liability for your company. Re-screen reports alert you to new DUI charges, accidents, or a lapse in a driver’s license. “It’s a little bit of cost, but it’s a big return because you’re protecting your customers and the integrity of your business. It ensures ongoing safety for clients and your employees,” says Lauren.

Myth: It’s too much work to coordinate ongoing re-screening services.
Truth: Implementing two keys tools can make re-screening your employees simple and easy. First, ensure your employees sign a continued employment authorization form that allows background checks during their tenure. This provides permission to re-screen legally and without additional paperwork. Then hire the professionals at MYB, Inc. to automatically re-run background checks. “Our Guardian Monitoring Search can provide customized re-screening services affordably and on a schedule that works for your company,” says Lauren.
