Employment Background Checks: Survey of American Citizens

95% of Americans think it should be mandatory to determine whether a person has a criminal background before taking a new job.

This is one of the many insights from our latest research with Kelton Research. Our survey was designed to better understand how American citizens feel when it comes to employment background checks and the impact they have on their professional and personal lives. With more than 1,000 participants involved in the study, this is the largest survey ever conducted among the American population on the subject – and the results may surprise you.
