Many employers choose to perform background checks on potential employees before hiring, but some may question the time and expense of ordering a comprehensive background check and wonder: are they really necessary? The answer: Absolutely. Pre-employment screenings can be the first line of defense to protect your company.

At 3rd Degree Screening, we understand the value that background checks can provide for you, your company, and ultimately, your bottom line. In today’s post, we’re going over why you shouldn’t skip background checks during your employment screening. Read on to learn more, and if you’d like to take advantage of our full background check services, be sure to contact us to get started today.


When applicants know they will be screened, those who are unsuited to the position are much less likely to apply. Not only does this help to guarantee that you won’t waste time interviewing poor candidates; it gives you and your company a much higher chance of making the best new hires for your business. Employment background investigations act as a “filter:” a first line of defense that weeds out poor candidates at once.

Save time on interviewing poor candidates and feel confident in making the right hire by background checking your applicants.


With better new hires comes increased confidence in the safety and security of your workplace. A full background check can include verifying an applicant’s educational history, performing reference checks, obtaining social security verifications, completing pre-employment drug screenings, and more. All of these measures help you to hire someone you can trust.


Pre-employment screenings also help reduce a business’s liability. For example, some companies may require employees to handle dangerous equipment or have access to sensitive information. Background checks or drug screenings can help limit your risk of hiring someone who will abuse these powers.

Feel confident in your hiring decisions by partnering with 3rd Degree Screening today.
