Performing complete background checks on all job applicants result in better hiring decisions. An improper hire in any position can cause problems in the workplace, including lawsuits. Our Loss Control staff report that most KLCIS members do not perform preemployment background checks on all new hires, often because they do not have a resource to obtain them.*
We are proud to announce that HireRight has agreed to provide us with a reduced rate on their most popular background check. HireRight which was founded in 1995 produced the world's first Internet-based background screening solution. They currently work with many branches of the government as well as major corporations performing preemployment background checks and screenings.
