Global Employment Screening Market Segment Insights

High number of illegal activities drive the criminal background checks segment

Based on services, the employment screening services market can be classified as education & employment verification, drug & health screening, credit history checks, criminal background checks, and others. The criminal background check segment accounted for a significant share in 2020 and is projected to expand at a robust growth rate during the forecast period. Rising criminal cases in corporate organizations such as counterfeiting, confidential data leaks, and violence compelled various corporations to run criminal background checks on their applicants and prospective employees to ascertain that they are mentally sound and have no history of any crime. This protects the firm from any financial and legal trouble and also reduced the vulnerability of the organisation. In order to safeguard the reputation and assets of the organizations, it was imperative for the HR team or outsourced employment screening services to run background checks. The education and employment verification segment is expected to expand at a rapid pace as it ascertains the qualifications of the prospective employee to verify that they are the right fit for the job and that they can perform the required tasks with the right skill set.
