Corra Group continues its expansion of international background checking services. In addition to international employment screening background checks, Corra Group has been expanding into financial vetting and business research on a global scale.
“As the world continues to develop its global economy, businesses are confronted with new challenges and new concerns,” said Gordon Basichis, Co-Founder of Corra Group. “Some employers are increasingly hiring international workers both domestically and for their foreign offices. These employees need to be vetted, and increasingly their employment histories and their educational histories have to be verified.
“Candidates often lie about where they worked and from what schools they graduated, “said Basichis. “They might think it’s like it was a few years ago, when employers took job applicants at their word and didn’t bother conducting background checks. But it’s not that way anymore. Now most employers verify education and check for international criminal records in the cities and countries where a candidate has lived previously.”
Basichis pointed to the increased concerns businesses have with their current and potential partners. He noted that corporations want to know if their vendors and partners have the funds to pay invoices, or, conversely, if they can ramp up to meet the demands of new and increased orders.
“It’s not like the good old days where you can just pick up the phone and ask friends and associates about new vendors and customers,” said Basichis. “In this world where relationships are different, many business owners prefer to keep their customers confidential, and are not particularly predisposed to discuss their supply chains and sourcing with their competitors. So asking around about new trading partners definitely has its limitations.
“To meet their needs, Corra Group offers business credit reports on an international basis,” said Basichis. “We can conduct international criminal records and international civil records in many countries. Through our new partnerships, we have expanded our services so we can put investigators on the ground in different foreign nations in order to conduct even more vigorous business research.”
Basichis pointed out that businesses may be concerned with duplicity and the siphoning of funds. He stressed how business owners want to know if international distributors are being accurate with sales figures and payments. Are they short counting volume sales or making false claims about commission checks? Manufacturers need to learn if their international trading partners are knocking off their brands and selling them secretly under different names. And, naturally, industrial espionage is a major concern.
“The expanding global economy brings with it some exciting times and some real opportunities,” said Basichis. "But there are also perils that come with those opportunities. Corra Group can help address these challenges, before a company is seriously damaged by misleading ventures."
