Tired of a painful background screening process?

What causes the pain?

In general, background screening vendors divide each report so that a single background check on a candidate can have three, four, or more individuals working on your candidate's professional reference, employment and education verifications, and criminal record research report.

These individuals are anonymous, there is no accountability, and generally have little or no interaction with a recruiter. This is not a recipe for success

United States Employees

Our pre-employment background check solutions include researchers who are located in the United States. Your candidate’s personal information, and in fact their entire life history, is not outsourced outside our borders where there is little identity protection.

Worried people

Our Strategic Solution                                                                     How many background vendors can make this claim?

Direct accountability. Only one researcher handles all aspects of each pre-employment background check. The name, phone number and email address for our researcher is included in every background investigation report we create.

Recruiters and hiring managers are encouraged to reach out to our researcher to discuss any aspect of the background investigation, request special handling and additional research. This interaction results in an important professional rapport and a better understanding of how we can provide information you require to make an informed hiring decision on an expedited basis. Our researchers and client recruiters are on a first name basis.


Does your vendor claim that criminal record checks are returned in a minute?

This is an outright fabrication. The vendor will report results in less than a minute, but to claim that they are conducting a “criminal check” is a misleading exaggeration. Many vendors use what they call Artificial Intelligence (AI) to scrape data from the Internet and compile a database of limited information that is stale and often lacks personal identifiers to confirm the record belongs to your candidate. The result? The potenital for a painful lawsuit.

This “check” merely accesses a proprietary database and reports the results. This is not the same as a criminal search that is conducted through a state agency or county court.

background vendor conducts criminal research

PBSA Accreditation. Do you know how your background vendor conducts criminal research around the country?

This can be really painful. Conduct a search for FCRA lawsuits to find out how many vendors do not follow FCRA guidelines. Not all criminal record checks are conducted equally. In fact, vendors are often deceptive regarding how they conduct research. Deception is not something you want in a vendor.

The PBSA acccredition process requires that vendors must state in the candidate's report how and where a criminal record search is conducted. Our pre-employment background screening solutions includes primary source criminal record checks through the State Police or other statewide agency specifically designated to allow criminal record checks for employment purposes. Our background investigation report will state a search was conducted through the appropriate state agency; the New Jersey State Police, the Office of Court of Administration in New York, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, etc.

If your background screening report does not indicate research was conducted through a state agency, we need to talk.
