AuthBridge Research Services Pvt Ltd., DataFlow LLC, HireRight holdings Corp, and Sterling Check Corp – Prominent Market Participants in Asia Pacific Employment Screening Services Market
The employment screening service market is a crucial part of the recruitment process. As a result, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) as well as large-size companies are investing hefty amounts in employee screening and verification processes. Several companies are gradually moving from an in-house verification process to more reliable third-party vendors. These vendors offer pre-hiring and post-hiring screening services. However, appointing a third party for these screening processes makes employers vulnerable to data breaches. Therefore, end-user enterprises are becoming highly conscious of the security of employee information and regulatory concerns related to the same. Moreover, previous cases of employee data breach concerns compel end-user companies to invest more in the protection of employee data. Players operating in the employment screening market in the Asia-Pacific are required to show their data breach protection and information security capabilities to enter and sustain the market. They are also required to demonstrate compliance with domestic and international privacy laws. There had been several alarming data breach incidents in the last few decades.
Companies nowadays have begun conducting an employee credit check to get a quick summary of an applicant’s financial history. Prior to hiring a candidate, credit checks are an extremely important process because they reveal a person’s level of financial responsibility, which is a good indicator of the attitude they will have toward the company’s finances. No matter what position a candidate holds, the business must be able to trust them with money, and a thorough credit history check enables this. This serves as a guarantee to the company that its employees will not commit any crimes or financial mismanagement, which would result in a significant loss for them.
