Background Direct: A simple-to-use background screening solution built for businesses just like yours.

Running a small business means you never stop and you likely wear multiple hats. Hiring the right people for your business is critical, yet can be time consuming. Conducting a background check is an effective strategy to help ensure you get quality candidates, but the rules and regulations related to employment screening can be confusing and complex.

Select custom screening reports, manage candidate information, and gain insights into potential employees to help create a cohesive team and build a stronger business.
