On average, a background screening check should take no longer than 24 – 48 hours to complete; however, depending on the scope or complexity of the actual search, turnaround times could be delayed.
Here are four factors that can contribute to lengthy background screening results:
One out of every six crimes occurs in the workplace and homicide is the second leading cause of workplace death in the U.S.
National Credit Verification Service reports that 25% of the MBA degrees it verifies on resumes are false.
72% of shrinkage is due to employee theft.
34% of all job applications contain lies.
30% of small business failure is caused by employee theft.
