Employer Lynx Training Center

Welcome to the Employer Lynx Training Center. It’s our goal to provide our clients with the highest level of education when it comes to background screening and investigations. 

We are providing a series of instructional webinars to offer a broader understanding of how background screening works and to answer the most frequently asked questions we receive on a daily basis. 

A variety of trainings to choose from below…

When we were deciding what training webinar to begin with, the answer was easy. When it comes to background screening there are few things more important…and more confusing…than Adverse Action.

We encourage you to share this training with EVERYONE in your organization who plays any role in hiring.

One of the most misunderstood facets of background screening is criminal records reports. Many people believe that all they need is a National Criminal Background report and they are good to go.

This couldn’t be further from the truth! We encourage you to share this training with EVERYONE in your organization who plays any role in hiring.

Many employers request Department Of Motor Vehicles (DMV) screenings for each of their potential hires. Unfortunately, too many don’t. This is because DMV reports are among the most misunderstood and underappreciated reports we offer.

After this short training, you’ll quickly understand the wisdom of including these reports as part of your standard screening packages. Also, we discuss Commercial Driver License (CDL) reports, which you’ll want to request for anyone handling transportation in your organization.  We encourage you to share this training with EVERYONE in your organization who plays any role in hiring.

One of the most valuable background screening reports we offer at Employer Lynx is the CREDIT REPORT. It will provide you with critical insights into a potential hire or a current employee seeking a new position within your organization. It will give you information you can’t really get in any other report.

Yet, it also is one of those reports that must be handled with care. When it comes to using credit reports for employment purposes it’s important to understand your applicants have been legislatively awarded special rights in how these reports can…and can’t be used.

It is the purpose of this training to explain how to use this tool effectively and to underscore just how valuable a tool credit reports can be with your recruiting efforts.

Employer Lynx background reports draw from a vast array of databases, court records, proprietary processes and, most important, a human touch.

Background screening can be very complex and is highly regulated in nature. Additionally, we have more than thirty record reporting options for you to choose from for a customized approach to your needs.

So…even with our best efforts, these reports can sometimes be challenging to understand. At least as you first read them. This is why we wanted to provide this step-by-step overview of a sample report so you can understand them as easily as possible. 

One of the most essential aspects of compliance is providing a secure and private point of access to all of the background records you receive from us.

This is accomplished through the use of our Secure Online Portal which is designed to give you an easy process to efficiently and securely submit, review and store your background reports.

Although our Secure Online Portal is designed to be as intuitive and easy to use as possible, we understand that learning how to use any new tool can take some effort.

This is why we have compiled this short training to assist you and your team in understanding the capabilities of our Secure Online Portal, as well as to walk you through how to use it.

Many businesses make the mistake of only requesting a background report during the hiring process.

The problem lies in that you’re hiring people. And people change. The circumstances in their lives can shift suddenly and cause a significant impact on the risk they may present to your company.

How do you know if a once-great employee has secretly become a major liability to your organization? The answer is you use Employer Lynx’s Recheck Service. This can provide you with a much higher level of confidence in the people who work for you.

This short training will assist you and your team in understanding the capabilities of our Recheck Service, and will also walk you through how to it works.

More than ever, professional background screening should be an essential facet of any organization’s hiring and retention processes.

With the rise of workplace violence coupled with a lowering of employee loyalties to their place of work, it’s getting more critical to get the talent acquisition right. For many employers, requesting background reports such as criminal, credit and DMV provide an excellent tapestry of revelation.

Yet, there is an important step in the employment research process that is of paramount importance as well. It’s employment verification. Employment verification is the activity of contacting past employers and confirming details provided by your prospective hires on their resumes and work applications.

This short training is designed to explain how our employment verification service works and why it’s so important for you and your organization.


If you’re like most of the business owners, managers, and human resources professionals we serve here at Employer Lynx, you’re busier than ever.

The process of recruiting, maintaining, and training a workforce has become a monumental task over the past few years.

Most of the people we work with say this is one of the most difficult hiring environments they’ve ever had to face. Several of these professionals sharing this opinion have been in their industries for decades.

Which is why as a provider of background checks and investigations we are always looking at innovative ways of making your job easier. That is the job of hiring and retaining your team members.

This short training is designed to guide you through the Applicant Entry functionality of our Secure Online Portal system, which greatly simplifies recruiting for your organization.


All organizations understand the importance of leadership to their overall success.

The vision of a company, the culture of an organization, and the operational efficiency and excellence all are the unique handiwork of the leadership team.

Typically, these high-level leaders will be able to allow you to reach your objectives more than anyone else who works for you.

At the same time, these individuals frequently represent the highest levels of risk in your organization.

When it comes to hiring executives, you have to get these decisions right.

This short training is designed to give you an overview of Executive Screening and explains what makes it different than standard applicant reporting.


Most leaders would agree that the quality of their organization is a result primarily of having good people. And if at all possible, the best people available for the job.

These days, most recruiters would argue putting together these kinds of top tier teams across your enterprise is no simple task.

Fortunately, for organizational leaders and human resources professionals there is a multi-faceted strategy available to them that can greatly enhance their ability to build a high performing team.

This strategy and the tools it is comprised of is called background screening.

This short training is designed to give you an overview of the Benefits Of Background Screening and to explain why it’s an essential tool for ensuring a safe and productive workplace.
