A good hiring decision starts with good information

The right hiring decision can save your company money and help mitigate potential risk. Employees — particularly those in sensitive positions — can expose your entire organization to legal and financial risk. Experian® helps companies mitigate this risk with an employment background check service designed to verify candidate information and avoid bad employment decisions.

Our employment background screening utilizes our nationwide database, which contains files on more than 220 million credit-active consumers. This means businesses have access to the most current and comprehensive credit information available in the industry so you can make the best hiring decisions.
