Employment Credit Checks for Effective Hiring
VettFirst’s Employment credit reports are available in seconds and help you make better employee hiring decisions by quickly and cost-effectively providing objective and factual credit information. Credit information provides insight into an applicant’s integrity and responsibility toward his or her financial obligations.
Employment Credit Checks enhances employment decision-making tools by:
- Quickly verifying information you receive from applicants and other sources
- Reveal conflicting information
- Providing credit information that would normally not appear on an application but may have an impact on job performance
The Employment Credit Report is specifically designed to give you the pertinent information needed to help make decisions quickly and easily when deciding on potential candidates or re-evaluating current employees. It shows a comprehensive credit history and provides public record information, plus other items individuals don’t typically include in job applications. By revealing potential patterns of inability to meet obligations, this report can also help identify applicants or employees who may be financially overextended. The format is also more descriptive than a standard credit report to help interpret the data and make quick, consistent decisions.
