Background check

Pegasus Kontroll conducts checks of job applicants.

Background check

Through a thorough background check, we check that the information that has been given in the CV, application, and other documentation related to a recruitment process is correct.

A background check won’t say anything about whether the applicant is suited for the advertised position, but you will get clear feedback on whether there are grounds to ask questions related to the content of the CV, documentation, etc. before hiring them.

The background check is meant to function as an aid for the employer, and to contribute to ensuring that applicants are hired based on the right grounds.

A background check will give a more correct perception of the applicant regarding:

  • – Honesty and loyalty
  • – Confidentiality and security awareness
  • – Personal economy and potential business economy
  • – History with previous employers

What we check:

  • – Analyzing CV / application
  • – Open online sources
  • – Credit check
  • – Reference check
  • – Safety interview (additional service)

How does a background check work?

  • – The employer conducts a normal recruitment process, with a few additions
  • – Potential candidates are informed that there will be conducted background checks by Pegasus Kontroll through the job advertisement
  • – The employer conducts the first round of interviews
  • – Potential candidates for a second interview sign a consent form allowing a background check
  • – Pegasus Kontroll conduct a background check
  • – The employer invites potential candidates to a second interview and follows their recruitment process

What do I get

  • – A thorough check by an objective third party, which is not influenced by whether the candidate is suitable for the position.
  • – A recruitment process that will give applicants a positive perception of the business’ focus on wastage/loss and safety.
  • – Safety regarding laws and rules being complied with.
  • – Fewer dishonest applicants.
  • – Time for other tasks.
  • – A better foundation to make the right decision and a smaller risk of recruiting the wrong person.
