Background Investigations


As an employer making decisions about who to hire or promote can be a costly one. The image customers have about a business is greatly influenced by the employees the customers engage with on a regular basis. Backgrounds investigations are a tool employers can use to screen individuals during the pre-employment and promotion process to ensure company success. Successful companies maintain a workforce that is qualified, ethical, and safe.

Qualified - Successful companies need a workforce that can deliver the goods or services sold by the company. A background check is a tool used by companies to verify:

  • Education 

  • Past Employment

  • Professional Licenses  

Ethical - Successful companies need a workforce that is ethical. A background investigation is a tool used by companies to verify ethical behavior:

  • Verification of Social Security Number 

  • Verification of previous addresses

  • Criminal Records

  • Driving Records

  • Bankruptcy

  • Workers Compensation 

  • Military Records

  • Reference Check (listed and unlisted)

Safe - Successful companies maintain a work environment where employees and customers trust the company is doing everything they can to keep them safe. Although a background can not ensure the safety of employees and customers, a background investigation can be used as a tool to flag safety concerns:

  • Criminal Records

  • Sex Offender Registry

  • Driving Records

  • Workers compensation 

  • Social Media Activity
