Our new dedicated website will make it easier for clients to learn about how Kroll and our network of international offices can help.

Kroll, the world’s leading risk consulting company, today announced the launch of a new website dedicated to its Background Screening division. KrollBackgroundScreening.com provides information about how Kroll can help organizations make informed decisions in critical areas such as employment, supplier selection, investment placement, institutional admissions, and identity theft prevention and assistance.

Kroll's Background Screening division developed the website in response to the evolving needs of the marketplace. Kroll's 2007 Hit Ratio Report revealed another year-over-year increase in criminal record convictions, from 9.1 to 9.5 percent. Employers are conducting more thorough multi-jurisdictional background checks on the individuals they hire. Additionally, they are screening a greater population of their staff, as well as temporary employees, vendors, and consultants.

"As employers of all sizes – across industries and around the world -– are recognizing the need to mitigate human capital risks, we are seeing an increasing demand for comprehensive background screening services," said Mike Rosen, president of Kroll’s Background Screening division. "Our new dedicated website will make it easier for clients to learn about how Kroll and our network of international offices can help.”

KrollBackgroundScreening.com provides specific guidance for a range of industries, including regulated industries such as healthcare and education. Additionally, employers with multinational workforces or an international presence can learn about differences in background screening methodology and compliance around the world. Understanding jurisdictional differences has become increasingly important as the demand for international background screening continues to build momentum.

“We designed our new website to educate the HR professionals, risk managers, and other individuals responsible for selecting their organization’s background screening provider,” said David Nadell, vice president of marketing for Kroll’s Background Screening division. “Our goal is to help them ask informed questions so they can make more direct comparisons between screening providers.”

The new website includes a list of upcoming events at which professionals can meet with Kroll background screening experts to learn more about Kroll’s range of related services. In addition to background screening for employees and vendors, Kroll's Background Screening division can assist with research for executive-level hires and investments, drug testing, physical exams, Form I-9 services and identity theft solutions.
