We excel at serving our clients and currently run thousands of background checks per month. Our advanced technology is easy to use, delivers confidential and secure information allowing for timely employment decisions. Our goal is to assist you in hiring better people who will increase productivity and decrease costly turnover.

The Society for Human Resource Management estimates that 53% of all job applications contain inaccurate information. Based on a survey of 2.6 million job applicants, 44% lied about work experience, 23% fabricated credentials or licenses, and 41% lied about their education. According to the FBI, a half million people in the US falsely claim to have a college degree. Many individuals will try to hide a clouded past, and employers may not give references or comment on a former employee.

Negligent hiring is the real threat of liability to employers today. To avoid a costly mistake - know who you are hiring by performing an inexpensive background search before hiring.

We can assist you in updating or designing an effective applicant screening program. Best of all, we offer competitive prices and excellent service! Contact us.
