Background Checks, Employment & Drug Screening Services - Spot Screening

Employment screening and background checks

When Speed, Price and Accuracy Matters

WHY Spot Screening


In a direct comparison with more than 1,000 screening vendors, Spot Screening provided the fastest turnaround time. Onboarding the right person as quickly as possible boosts morale, increases productivity, and ensures that critical functions are completed on time.


In a nationwide market research study, Spot Screening rates were determined to be typically 15-30% lower than most competitors. A dollar gained in revenue is great, but only a small portion reaches earnings. A dollar saved from costs, however, goes directly to the bottom line of your company.


Turning down the right candidate due to inaccurate records hurts, and hiring someone with unreported criminal records is devastating. Spot Screening is founded upon delivering the most accurate results, especially as orders start to approach 5,000-20,000 in a given month.
