A new survey by Endera, a risk alert firm, found that nearly 100 percent of employers conduct some form of background check pre-hire, but only 25 percent perform a background check post-hire.
According to the source article, research shows that one-in-1000 employees are arrested each month, but only 30 percent of employers would know if an employee had been arrested.
The survey was conducted with 278 business executives. Valerie Bolden-Barrett "Survey: Less than 25% of employers do background checks once an employee is hired," hrdive.com (Apr. 28, 2017).
