Every Day We See the Difference

Throughout the year, NationSearch gets requests from clients to rescreen employees for a variety of different reasons. Along with these requests come questions about how the rescreening process works: How do I initiate rescreening? When should I rescreen? What are some reasons that I should rescreen? What types of rescreening are available?

To provide some insight into these questions, we went to our CEO and President Jodie Saremi for further explanation.

Answers to all your Re-Screening Questions

How do I initiate rescreening?

Companies and their hiring teams can choose to generate a list of random employees at any time for the purposes of rescreening. Depending on each business’ policies and needs, hiring teams may choose to initiate random rescreening from company-wide lists and/or on an as-needed, individual employee basis.

When should I rescreen?

Businesses can also choose to screen employees around milestone dates, such as at the end of the initial probationary period, the 6-month mark, or during annual reviews. Some clients choose to conduct rescreens when either an employee’s promotion or departmental transfer is being considered.

Reasons for rescreening:

Rescreening can take several different forms depending on an employee’s position in the company. One of the most common rescreens is based on motor vehicle record (MVR) requests: employees that are drivers or otherwise have access to company machinery can have an adverse impact on insurance rates. Another frequent rescreening practice is utilized by employers in financial arenas, where government entities such as the FDIC require employees with access to sensitive financial information to be regularly screened for credit issues.

Types of rescreening

The following categories are some of our more widely used options for rescreening. Of course, search packages can be selected and tailored to fit specific company requirements:

Criminal screens that cover from date-of-hire to the present-day
Drug screening
Motor vehicle records check
Various exclusion lists—financial, professional licensing, etc.
Benefits of rescreening

Rescreening allows companies to be aware of new issues and to identify adverse patterns. This resource also helps to fulfill internal safety requirements.

Rescreening costs

Costs tend to vary by search package and type, but these costs are offered at a reduced rate for existing clients. As always, please feel free to contact the NationSearch team with any questions that may come up regarding the rescreening process and if rescreening is the right choice for your company.
