Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, Morocco, and Kuwait are the main countries facing the impact of COVID-19 in the MEA. Saudi Arabia’s economy shrank by 7% in the Q2 2020, and unemployment reached a new high of 15.4% during the same period. According to the General Authority for Statistics, both the private and public sectors experienced negative growth rates of 10.1% and 3.5%, respectively. These adversities have significantly contributed to unemployment across the Middle East, thereby negatively impacting the employment screening services market performance. Similarly, in Q4 2020, unemployment rate in South Africa reached a new peak of 32.5%, implying that 7.2 million people were unemployed. However, with the slowly fading effect of COVID-19 across the MEA, leading to the normalization of industries, the demand for skilled employees is also on rise, which is likely to propel the employee screening services market growth across the region in the coming years.

The large enterprises segment led the employment screening services market based on organization size type in 2020.Large enterprises have higher productivity growth and have the most significant employment shares.

Employee screening services help employers from the large enterprises to get a clear idea of a candidate irrespective of the data shared by the candidate during the interview process.Significant awareness regarding the importance of employee screening services and the growing tendency of providing fake data among job applicants are compelling large enterprises to hire professional background verifiers.

Thus, to eliminate such candidates from the applicant pool, it is crucial to carry out employee screening tests, which is boosting the demand for employment screening services.
