Background Screening Checks

  • Conduct background screening checks on persons or orgnizations to expand the information which can be used for investigations.
  • Background screening checks can be requested from within the ZoomOut™ application.
  • All background screening checks are conducted via Managed Integrity Evaluation.

By partnering with Managed Integrity Evaluation (MIE) in conducting background screening, ZoomOut™ can verify whether a potential employee or vendor has been honest and transparent about the authenticity of their credentials and professional information.

Background screening (aka Background Checks, Suitability Checks and Probity Checks) is often requested by employers when considering on-boarding a potential employee.

A possible consequence of not screening includes both increased costs and risk as a result of the untruthful, inaccurate or deliberate omission of information provided by the individual or organisation.

For companies looking to mitigate risk, it is quickly becoming standard practice to screen prospective employees as part of the hiring process.

Benefits of background screening:

  • Avoids the hiring or use of unsuited individuals and organisations
  • Provides peace of mind that high calibre, appropriately skilled individuals have been appointed
  • Reduced training and employee development costs
  • Increased productivity as a result of appropriately skilled workforce
  • Improved regulatory compliance in Human Resources (HR) procedures
  • Mitigates risk in terms of developing a negative reputation as a result of being associated with individuals with a questionable work history and skills
  • Avoids costly litigation resulting from dismissals and / or arbitration
  • Association with MIE’s reputation as the largest and most trusted background screening company in Southern Africa
