"We realize background checks for the technology industry are not one size fits all,” said Gordon Basichis. “Technology concerns can cover a wide range of business sectors. Corra Group is able to provide them with custom employment screening solutions.

As the technology industry continues to expand in Southern California, Corra Group has extended new types of employment screening services to the start ups and established companies. The El Segundo based background screening company believes that by offering more comprehensive employment screening searches to the different companies they can better identify their top candidates from the highly competitive talent pool.

In a November 19th, 2014 article, Red Herring termed Southern California the third largest technology eco-system in the country,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. “This is the fasted growing technology market, and as such it attracts capital investment from local and global venture capital groups.

“As a Los Angeles based company, we recognize background checks for the technology industry are not one size fits all,” said Basichis. “Technology concerns can cover a wide range of business sectors. The Silicon Beach, as it is known, can vary from the mobile and telecommunications sector to healthcare and media entertainment. Additionally, the private equity groups and financial investors may require background checks to vet the principles they intend to finance. As companies hire more employees, Corra Group is able to provide them with custom employment screening solutions."

Basichis pointed out that the burgeoning technology industry in Southern California has created a very competitive hiring market. He noted how start ups and established businesses are often undergoing intensive expansion and find themselves competing for talent.

Background checks can help in determining the best fit for the working environment,” said Basichis. “Criminal records are the obvious red flag, but then we find a fair portion of job applicants lie about their college education. Some claim degrees when in fact they were only enrolled for a couple of years. In some cases, despite their claims, they never attended any college. When the employer is dependent upon the legitimacy of certain skill sets, then education verification becomes an important factor.

"Social media reports are increasingly of interest," said Basichis "There is a difference between a good performer who may be a bit eccentric, and someone who may prove disruptive to the workforce. With start ups especially, a disruptive element can grievously upset the typically small staff and intimate working environment.”
