International & Global Screening

International & Global Screening With Background Information Group

With an increase in remote positions for many industries, the need for global background screening programs is on the rise. At Background Information Group, we seek to provide our clients with background check services that meet the needs of their growing businesses.


With the help of our comprehensive global screening services, you can ensure that your employees are qualified and eligible for employment, whether they lived, worked, or had been educated outside of the United States.

International & Global Background Screening Made Easy

Many companies today are realizing the advantages of partnering with professionals around the globe. Although this allows you to capitalize on the expertise of individuals in other regions, it also presents a unique set of challenges. When you hire foreign nationals, your organization must be careful to abide by both regulations instituted by the United States and also the regulations of the local employment laws.


Background Information Group provides international screening services that provide consistency to your hiring process while reflecting the languages, cultures, and regulations of countries outside the United States.


Our global screening services provide the same level of speed and accuracy as traditional background checks, allowing you to move through the hiring process more efficiently. 

Who Should Implement Global Background Screening?

Should your company implement global screening? This is a question that we hear often. Even if you are not a global organization, you still might benefit from implementing this service.


We believe that companies should use a global screening process for the following situations:


  • U.S. company with locations in other countries.
  • U.S. company that is hiring professionals in other countries.
  • U.S. company that hires professionals who cite employment or education in countries outside the United States.


Most companies today find themselves within at least one of these categories. In fact, because employers are less likely to verify employment or education that took place outside the United States, many individuals gain employment in positions that they are not qualified for. Global screening is the best way to verify the information that an applicant shares during the hiring process.


Using a global screening check, you can also conduct global criminal searches, eliminating the possibility of criminal activity that took place in another country.

Benefits of Global Screening

Global screening benefits almost any industry in a number of ways. Here are some of the reasons why we offer this service to our clients.

Global background screening is the only true way to verify the educational and employment experience of candidates. If a foreign national or citizen of the United States has experience in a country outside the U.S., it can be challenging to accurately verify their qualifications.

As an employer, you must mitigate the possibility of discrimination during the hiring process. To do so, you must implement a hiring standard that is consistent for any employee that works for your organization, including those outside of the United States.


If you run a background check on a US citizen, you also need to run a background check on a foreign national that applies for a position and vice versa. The best way to do this is to establish a comprehensive global background screening process that is used for any applicant interested in your organization.

Another benefit of implementing global screening is to mitigate the risk of negligent hiring claims. If you hire an employee without thoroughly reviewing their qualifications, you may find yourself involved in an expensive litigation.


To avoid this, we recommend implementing a global screening program for any applicant that includes criminal records, employment records, and education records.

Understanding Global Screening From a Legal Standpoint

Navigating the laws and regulations surrounding background checks in the United States is challenging enough. When you add in the complex foreign laws and local regulations of other countries, you can easily become overwhelmed. Luckily, our team of experts are well-versed and educated in implementing global screening services that allow you to remain in compliance.


Claims of discrimination are made every day against both large corporations and small businesses. Working with professionals who understand how to carefully navigate the challenges of a global workforce is one of the best ways to prevent the possibility of unintentional discrimination against your employees.

Our primary focus at Background Information Group is to provide business owners and employers with the information they need to find the top candidates for their organizations. Whether you manage a global corporation or you are hiring an individual with international employment history, it is important to screen their qualifications and employment eligibility.
