“For the fourth consecutive year, Employment Screening Resources has identified new trends that are starting to make a difference as well as older trends evolving as the pre-employment background screening industry matures,” explains Lester Rosen, founder and President of Employment Screening Resources and author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual – The Complete Guide to Keeping Criminals, Terrorists, and Imposters Out of Your Workplace,’ the first comprehensive book on background checks.
An article detailing each of the top ten trends will be published on ESR News in ascending order beginning in December 2010. The complete Fourth Annual ‘Top Ten Trends in Pre-Employment Background Screening’ for 2011 will be published in early January 2011.
Mr. Rosen, an Attorney at Law and recognized safe hiring expert, selected each trend after closely reviewing background screening news and developments from various sources, a practice that has helped him predict future background screening industry trends in the past.
“For example, the number one trend on the ‘Top Ten Trends’ list for 2010 was the increased focus on whether the use of credit reports and criminal records during employment screening would be seen as discriminatory,” says Rosen. “This topic was hotly debated during this year by jobseekers, employers, and the government.”
