Well-informed hiring decisions
Too often, families and agencies discover the value of a thorough background investigations only after something has gone wrong.
A caregiver proves to be unreliable, something of value is missing from a home, or, worse yet, a child or other family member is injured.

Criminal Background Investigations
The best way to understand your applicants’ criminal history is to ask them.
However, because applicants are not always forthcoming with honest and complete answers about past bad behavior, it is critical for employers to run a criminal background check to verify applicants’ claims.

Our most common criminal background investigation packages are outlined below, but we are always glad to help you design a program that meets your specific needs.

Qualifications Background Investigations
Many candidates inflate their qualifications to be more appealing to prospective employers. In fact, more applicants lie about their education and employment experience than lie about their criminal history.
Verifying their claims are also integral to establishing applicants’ honesty and integrity. If they lie to you walking in the door as an applicant, can you be surprised if their behavior doesn’t change as an employee?
