El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2014
Corra Group has added new background searches to its corporate research and employment screening programs. The new background checks can serve a dual purpose for both researching potential business partners as well as discerning the employment history of job applicants.
“A key factor in employment screening, especially at the more senior levels, is the veracity of a candidate’s claims that he not only worked at where he claimed he worked, but the dates he is claiming also hold true,” said Gordon Basichis, Corra Group Co-Founder. "Any significant gap in a senior executive’s employment history can arouse suspicions."
"With the candidate’s consent, we can now acquire the candidate’s complete employment history as he reported it to the IRS," said Basichis. "We can not only conduct employment verification based on the employment history the candidate provided, but our clients can now gain a comprehensive overview of its candidate’s entire employment chronology."
Basichis commented that this new instrument can apply to employment screening but also for co-venture and partnership opportunities, where venture capital, private equity, and other investment groups want to confirm the principal’s expertise in the related industrial space.
“Believe me,” said Basichis, "we have seen where the candidate or principal claimed a most ambitious career that was not entirely true. The last thing our clients need is to discover this after the fact."
Basichis pointed out that Corra Group has the ability research individuals and companies both domestically and globally for any suspicious corporate affiliations. “It is this kind of conflict of interest that can potentially cause your business a lot of heartache,” said Basichis. "There are individuals who work with you for a while, only to gain access to client lists and proprietary data. They then siphon of your clients and pass them off to the other group for a handsome kickback."
"There are very real situations where a candidate has another relationship with a business in the very same industrial space. These affiliations, whether in a hiring situation or a business venture, may reveal a serious conflict of interest. A key element to look for when engaging with an individual or new employee is to determine whether his previous corporate affiliations are not all in his past. An employer or partner must examine the potential for new associates to engage briefly and then siphon off business to one of their own affiliates."
"We are meeting the needs of our clients by sourcing new background screening instruments wherever we can," said Gordon Basichis, Corra Group Co-Founder. "In the context of sourcing, not all background checks are created equal."
