First Advantage’s annual trends research combines aggregated anonymized data from the company’s 75 million global searches in 2020 cross-referenced against customer survey responses to uncover emerging background screening trends. During this webinar, ASQ-certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belts Rachel Fronapfel, Chuck Lauer, Brian Larrow and Nuno Ricardo will take a deep dive into data from the report to illustrate how First Advantage customers:

  • Decreased the rate of missing information from candidates by 18 percent through the use of mobile-enabled technologies.
  • Increased the rate of returned criminal record results with broader scoped searches combined with continuous monitoring features – resulting in significantly increased findings of reportable criminal records since 2019.
