HIRING: Considerations in doing background checks

Many health care organizations contract out criminal background checks because they do not have access to the needed online databases, among other reasons.  However, these investigations can still fail to discover important information about a job applicant.  Reference checks and employment history verification are often done in house by the employer.  This process can also be problematic; for example, how does one overcome the tendency for an applicant to list references who will only give a glowing impression?  The author, president of a security firm, discusses these and other concerns related to vetting individuals for hiring.
