About Background Screening

Background Screening entails a process of validation and discovery relating to details of an individual or organisation’s legitimacy, identity, experience, reputation, integrity and credentials.

Background screening enables you to see a much fuller picture of the individual or organisation with which you intend to interact by verifying known factual data as well as researching a wide spectrum of other sources of information.

The types of Background Screening Programs that CREDENCE run include (but are not limited to) –

EMPLOYMENT SCREENING (Both Pre & Post)
EXECUTIVE & BOARD MEMBER SCREENING
VENDOR & SUPPLIER SCREENING
BUSINESS PARTNER SCREENING
AML/KYC SCREENING
INVESTMENT PLACEMENT SCREENING
TENANT SCREENING
ENHANCED DUE DILIGENCE

In general terms, the vast majority of screening activities undertaken by CREDENCE are conducted with the express knowledge and consent of the parties with which we are working. There are occasions however, where CREDENCE are retained on more discretionary engagements, whereby Background Screening is conducted covertly. Whenever this is the case, CREDENCE always adhere to the laws and relevant compliance frameworks of the territories in which we are operating.
