The State of Executive Background Checks

An AESC and Mintz Group inaugural examination of candidate background checks in executive search

To help provide additional insight into how executive background screening is conducted, the impact it has on the search process, and how consultants evaluate background screening providers, the AESC and the Mintz Group worked together on an inaugural joint report, which surveyed AESC members in October and November 2021.

This report, which will become an annual collaboration between Mintz Group and AESC, examines the state of background screening in executive searches, including what complaints and investigations raise red flags among AESC member search firms; approaches to background screening and who conducts them, challenges and consequences of the scope of background checks on an executive search; and the impact of technology such as AI on investigations.
