CARCO Group, Inc. (CARCO), a worldwide leader in background screening and investigations, announced that they have been granted Sue Weaver C.A.U.S.E. Certification, an honor given to companies who demonstrate the integrity demanded by The C.A.U.S.E., and who also apply strict background standards when working with service providers seeking certification.
The Sue Weaver C.A.U.S.E was created to promote Consumer Awareness of Unsafe Service Employment regarding the necessity of criminal background checks on service employees and contractors hired to work in or near clients’ homes. Founded in honor of Sue Weaver, who lost her life to an unscreened worker in her home, the organization launched their Certification campaign in 2008 to identify companies who perform criminal background checks on workers sent into consumers’ homes.
In addition to being Certified, CARCO is also working with The C.A.U.S.E to develop a technology platform that will make it easy for Certified companies to maintain compliance with C.A.U.S.E. standards. When complete, this Web-based platform will allow any Certified background provider to upload individual certification information, thus allowing companies and consumers to verify stated Certifications. “We are excited to work with such a worthy organization, and we look forward to delivering technology that will enhance the C.A.U.S.E. Certification Program,” said James Owens, CEO and President of CARCO Group, Inc.
