In spite of the massive national layoffs discussed
by the media, selective hiring has increasingly
resumed since the second week of January, 2009.
Clients tell us that finally they have a great selection
of candidates to choose from for reasonable wages.
These same organizations know that if they hire
the wrong person, or use the wrong H.R. procedures,
hiring the new person could create a problem now
or in the future.
These days most companies have the Internet speed
to view online business videos. So, we have created
three brief overview videos to help you with your
planning and operations. They are: (1) Why Screen
Applicants, (2) Secure Retrieval, and (3) Online
WHY SCREEN APPLICANTS
This video ( 4:38 min ) briefly describes questions
that you should be thinking about, it gives you an
overview of how to do a background check for a
reasonable price that will answer your questions,
and at the same time, in case of a future legal action,
prove that you did in fact act in a prudent manner at
the time of hiring.

SECURE COMPLIANT RETRIEVAL
This video ( 6:07 min ) covers the types of reports
that you can routinely obtain to help you understand
the background of a candidate. It also explains what
the governing Federal and State laws are, and some
of the key things that you must keep in mind as you
proceed with your background checking. Most
importantly is your compliance with the FCRA which
now governs ALL reports on your candidate that you
purchase from any source. Particularly, it points out
that you MUST use freshly retrieved data, and not
stale data that is sold to you from gigantic databases.
Secure Compliant Retrieval
