These jobs are more than just sensitive; they are tasked with the responsibility of caring for another human life. When working with at-risk groups such as children and the elderly there simply is no compromise allowed for their safety.

When hiring a nanny or in-home care providers, the highest level of scrutiny is required because of the very nature of their work. These positions require flexible hours and dates, and in essence the new employee conjoins their life with the employer’s and becomes part of an extended family. These jobs are more than just sensitive; they are tasked with the responsibility of caring for another human life. When working with at-risk groups such as children and the elderly, there simply is no compromise allowed for their safety.

The evaluation of character required in making a hire of this magnitude is something that HireSafe understands from their extensive sixteen years of experience. This is why HireSafe’s recent developments and continuing commitment to excellent service in the realm of pre-employment screening have made their Nanny and Home Care Provider Background Checks both convenient and comprehensive. Within the guidelines of federal and/or state hiring laws, HireSafe will deliver compliant criminal record search results.

HireSafe’s background checks are not routine. Clients are systematically walked through the process by HireSafe’s trained staff to understand and develop an effective screening process to fit any employer’s needs. The responsibility of the position should have a proper level of scrutiny and due-diligence performed.

Substance abuse in the workplace is at endemic levels within all social-economic levels. An individual with a substance abuse problem is statisitically more likely to steal and be involved in job-related accidents, and a chronic drug user generally will not be capable of maintaining the quality work-ethic required by employers. HireSafe offers many differing forms of drug tests ranging from Oral Fluids, Urinalysis and Hair Follicle testing to assist in hiring the very best candidates.

All of these options constitute a great means to ensure beyond a doubt that employees are responsible and able individuals to fit the requirements of such a demanding job. Although, despite the insights pre-employment drug testing may give into a new found employee, if ever a post-employment incident occurs or if the individual displays the tendencies of being under the influence of drugs additional immediate drug testing is warranted.
