Global Screening Mysteries: Answers to Common Questions About Global ScreeningAs companies expand their search for top talent throughout the world and open new business sites outside of the United States, global recruitment and hiring continues to increase as a top challenge for Human Resource professionals. With U.S. immigration and work visas both on the rise due to the recent changes in executive and legislative leadership, the need for quality background screening options both in the United States and abroad is expected to continue to rise. AccuSource recently addressed the need for greater understanding of the screening options available in many key countries and regions around the world, in addition to identifying common compliance challenges. Facilitated by industry veteran Kerstin Bagus, Chief Knowledge Officer at NetForce Global, the webinar provides a high-level overview of key service comparisons, use restrictions and availability, reasons for availability limitations or searches inconsistency among vendors and global data protection issues.
