Startups are expanding background checks of potential staff

From The Economic Times, “Startups are doing more background checks than before on their potential employees, as they are faced with the pressure to hire right.

As much as 87% of discrepancies found during a recent survey by background screening solutions firm First Advantage were at the level of senior management. Of these candidates, 42.3% were in the 22-30 age group, indicating that a significant chunk of them belonged to the startup ecosystem.

“We see more startups seeking background checks. Wrong hiring can sully the image of the startups, and cash-strapped startups can’t afford to hire the wrong person,” First Advantage managing director Purushotam Savlani said.”
