Summary: Performing a pre-employment background check equips employers and volunteer managers with key information about a candidate’s past that might influence whether or not they are a good fit for the current position. Basic and Enhanced Criminal Record Checks are available, but which one should you choose? And when would you choose these services instead of a Vulnerable Sector Check? Nationalpardon discusses the benefits of each so you can confidently choose the best option for your organization and your specific situation. As a bonus, we’ll outline the benefits of using references, a new and exciting tool to help you more efficiently and effectively conduct reference checks.
