If you could take a guess, how many employers nationwide would you estimate conduct criminal background checks on job applicants as part of their hiring process? According to a recent Society for Human Resource Management survey (results published July 2012), over 80% of employer respondents indicated that applicant criminal background records were reviewed during the hiring process. Specifically, 69% of organizations reported that they conducted criminal background checks on ALL of their job candidates; and 18% of organizations used criminal background checks for select positions. Does that surprise you?
