The facts are clear – most companies today need to do a better job selecting talent. Recent survey data collected by the Corporate Executive Board indicates that nearly a quarter of all new hires leave their companies within a year, and that hiring managers wish that they never extended an offer to one of every five members of their team. And a recent Gallup survey found that 52% of American workers were “not engaged” with their work.
Can you afford to miss an opportunity to learn how best-in-class organizations are using new technologies to scientifically assess talent before hiring, resulting in lower turnover, higher job performance, and greater employee engagement?

Unfortunately, the pendulum has shifted in the past few years and there is a fast growing movement to restrict the use of background checks because there is a belief that it is contributing to a high level of recidivism among ex-offenders. It is critical important that organizations understand how to conduct legally compliant criminal background checks that align with:
• Ban the Box – Law the removes the option of collecting criminal history information on an application
• EEOC 2012-2016 Strategic Plan- Targets employers that have zero tolerance policies regarding criminal records
• Fair Credit Reporting Act- The FCRA has some very specific requirements that employers MUST follow
• Social Media Background Checks- The proliferation in social media has spawned a “Wild West” approach to searching social media sites as part of the background screening process. However this can place employers a risk of being sued.
