Conducting Background Checks as a Global Company: Adapting to Regional Perceptions
Wednesday 06/20/2018 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM Add to calendar
1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: HR Expertise, Critical Evaluation, Global & Cultural Effectiveness | Intended Audience: Senior-Level
Workplace Application:
You will learn how to work with candidates in foreign countries to ease concerns about the process. 

Global companies know differing regulations will dictate background checks in foreign countries. You may not realize that candidates' perceptions of background checks are just as important as not every county is as “background-check friendly” as the U.S. This session will provide an overview of how background checks are viewed in other countries and what you can do to mitigate concerns of wary candidates, so background checks don't turn into a hurdle to hiring qualified candidates. This session will review:

  • How candidates in foreign countries may view background checks.
  • How this view could affect your process.
  • How to communicate with those candidates more effectively.
  • What your on-the-ground HR departments need to know.
