“For Corra Group, this means creating employment screening packages that cover the needs of both business models, both brick and mortar and online shopping,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Nick Gustavson.

Corra Group is readying itself for the seasonal rush of employment screening. The El Segundo, California based background checking service believes this holiday season will be more unique as a larger portion of holiday shopping shifts to the e-commerce platforms.

“There is a paradigm shift in the way consumers conduct their holiday shopping,” said Corra Group Co-founder, Nick Gustavson. “Brick and Mortar retail sales are still strong, but the E-Commerce model is rapidly taking over. According to a November, 2015 article in Bloomberg, there were more online shoppers than brick and mortar consumers during last year’s pivotal Black Friday weekend. We expect there will be more of the same as consumers move increasingly to E-Commerce platforms.

“For Corra Group, this means creating employment screening packages that cover the needs of both business models,” said Gustavson. “The other factor with E-Commerce shopping is the resurgence in trucking as the retailers and carriers need to hire more drivers to service the holiday season. This means conducting motor vehicle driving records on the drivers as well as criminal background checks.”

Gustavson points out that Corra Group can provide MVRS for drivers in every state in the nation as well as Canada. He noted that driving records in most states will return from the state Department of Motor Vehicles in approximately sixty seconds.

“Driving records are key to hiring drivers,” said Gustavson. “But even with temporary hires it is essential to conduct a Criminal Database Search, the Sex Offenders Registry, and County Criminal Records. Many brick and mortar sales people are around children, so you want to protect against any wrongdoing. With online sales people, they may be handling sensitive and proprietary data, and in some cases consumer credit cards. Checking them out is well advised.”

Gustavson explained that Corra Group is a one-stop background checking service and as such can create custom packages to meet the needs of any employer. He indicated that for the temporary hires most employers try to limit the types of searches they conduct, the essential background checks can prove very cost effective.

“For the few bucks an employer will spend on background checks, and employer is buying peace of mind,” said Gustavson. “Because the wrong hire, even a temporary employee can prove very costly. Then the expenditure for background checks looks cheap by comparison.”

BACKGROUND: Corra operates as Corra Group and specializes in pre-employment and corporate research and investigation. It is a full service screening company that offers the full range of background checks and business research to industries throughout the United States and around the world.
