Due to the pandemic, the working world has changed in many ways. One of the biggest changes is the increase in remote positions. Companies forced to transition to having employees work from home, are finding that this model is working. This is great news.

This affects the hiring procedure, however. Is a background check necessary for someone who will not be coming into your company facilities? Absolutely. In fact, it is more important than ever to screen remote workers.

The qualifications important to look for in a remote worker include their ability to work with minimal supervision. They also need to have:

  • Excellent computer skills
  • An ability to effectively communicate with supervisors and team members through email and Zoom
  • Consistent levels of productivity

Please note that our background checks meet federal and state FCRA (Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act) regulations.
