Pre-Employment Screening Services

Comprehensive background checks, drug screens, and more, so you can feel confident about new hires from day one.


Pre-employment screenings and background checks are important tools for making the right hire. Employers Council can help, by offering an advanced, user-friendly, online approach to background screenings. Our resources make employee screening smooth and simple, so you can feel confident in your next hire.


Why Update Your Pre-Employment Screening Process?

Bringing on new staff members is an exciting step, but it can also be a risk without proper screening and assessment. Conducting processes such as drug testing and background checks helps ensure new employees meet the standards and requirements of the job, and mitigates future issues or liability that could be faced when hires go poorly.

Developing a Pre-employment Screening Process

There are many different ways to evaluate potential employees during the interview process, but screening can give you key information and insight about the candidates. Each component provides a new perspective on your potential hires, and helps you make the best possible decision for your organization. Having an expert review your process and policies is the best way to make sure you’re making the right choices with employee screening.

Background Checks

From education and employment to criminal records and professional references, we can help you verify all of the information that candidates provide when they apply.

Our Members Include

I attended the harassment prevention workshop put on by Employers Council, and I wanted to share my praise for the presenter. I was skeptical about whether I would learn anything I didn't already know, but she presented the information in thought-provoking and nuanced ways. She answered questions well and had us do an activity that enlivened the presentation. As an academic, I particularly appreciated the way that she was able to address the issues intellectually and not simply give us an "information dump." Anyway, I was impressed with what I expected to be a boring presentation. - Professor, Regis University

Our handbook needed to be updated. We had done minor revisions over the years, but more policies than we needed crept into the handbook over time. I wanted to keep what was important and get rid of the rest. I sent my handbook to Employers Council and staff went through all of the policies to first let me know what could be eliminated, and what needed to change in order to bring it up to date. The best thing was that this is part of my full membership dues, so there was no charge for this. I send in my handbook every one or two years for a tune up, so it reflects current laws and stays streamlined.

As I faced some difficult employee problems over the years, I knew that I could reach out to Employers Council and get some good solid advice in how to handle a situation. In the 20 years if have been working in HR I don’t believe I was ever given bad advice. I may not have always agreed with what the counsel was, but I never put myself or the company in a compromising position by following your advice and recommendations.

Joe Maylin, Human Resources Manager - Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co.

Being able to reach out to someone on the Member Experience Team when something comes up and we're just not sure how to handle it is amazing. We have help just a phone call or an email away, and everyone that we have worked with has been so responsive, understanding, and helpful.
