You cannot tell if a person has a criminal history just by looking at them. A criminal background check is just one of the essential products we offer to protect your company from a bad hire. Being aware of any issues in criminal records before hiring an applicant can reduce your company’s risk of a negligent hiring lawsuit.
Investigative Services can include Workers’ Compensation Investigations, Employee Theft Investigations, Criminal Investigations, Accident Reconstruction, Skip Tracing, Corporate Investigations, Business Screening, Computer Forensic Investigations, Dishonest Employee Interview/Interrogation, Personal/Domestic Investigations, Polygraph Services, Fingerprinting Services, Process Service (Benton County and Washington County), Test Shopping Services, and Undercover Investigations.
Threats ranging from terrorism to workplace violence have forced companies and institutions to take a closer look at their security programs. Security Consulting includes School and College Security and Risk Assessments, Business Security Assessments, and Individual Residential Security Reviews.
Drug screening helps your company reduce the problems and risks that come with substance abuse including absenteeism, tardiness, employee turnover, attitude problems, embezzlement, low productivity, crime, and violence. Opting to drug test can reduce the risk of accidents and may also reduce healthcare and workers’ compensation costs for your company.
Are you a landlord or property management company who wants to assure that rent payments will be received timely and that rent checks won’t bounce? Do you want to make sure your tenants feel safe and secure because all tenants have been screened? Tenant screening is a necessary part in determining if your prospective tenant has a good rental history and will be a rent worthy tenant for you.
As the job market becomes more competitive and job applicants continue to misrepresent their education on their resumés, education verifications become critical to the operation of your business. Education verifications are valuable honesty checks that help protect you as an employer against negligent hiring claims.
Whether you represent a Fortune 500 company or small business, hiring qualified, honest employees is critical to the success of your organization. Because so many people misrepresent their background and credentials, it is important to do at least a little checking to see if what the applicant says about his or her background is true.
Charitable nonprofit groups and churches are constantly recruiting and working with volunteers and need reliable background screening. Good volunteers are vital to the success of those organizations, but bad volunteers can jeopardize their success and pose a high threat when given access to children and the elderly or sensitive information.
When hiring employees, trusting one’s instincts can be risky. Let’s face it, when interviewing a potential employee, what you see isn’t always what you get. The Society of Human Resource Management published a statistic stating that 52% of all applications contain some type of inconsistency. What does this mean to you? It means that one out of every two people interviewed have misrepresented themselves on their application. Background checks are an easy solution when you need more information on a candidate to make an informed hiring decision.
Insurance companies and attorneys know that people are not always honest, especially when faced with a lawsuit. Performing background checks and investigation services are cost efficient ways to get litigation moving forward and concluded quickly.
