The principals of Corra Group have recently traveled to Europe on an exploratory mission to directly source background checks from international suppliers. The types of searches will further expand Corra Group’s comprehensive range of background checks for due diligence, employment screening, and Investigation.

“In an effort to expand and elevate the kinds of International searches we can offer our clients,” my business partner, Nick Gustavson and I thought it best to get on a plane and take a look for ourselves,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. “We have traveled to a variety of countries, including Italy, Spain, Germany, and the United Kingdom to meet with researchers from these key nations. Our meetings proved incredibly useful and gave us an understanding as to the opportunities and limitations involved with international background checks.

“Of course, we were looking for the staples of our business, international criminal background checks, and international civil background checks, as well as international education verification and international employment verification,” said Basichis. “But with an expansion in the global economy and with our clients requesting increasingly the types of searches that will satisfy due diligence, this trip provided an excellent overview.”

Basichis pointed out that not only are businesses, both startups and major corporations, establishing a footprint in the major cities of the world, but there is a population shift where people from all over the world are now working for these countries. He noted that the employment staffs in a great many companies are comprised of workers of all nationalities who have migrated to one city or another in search of better opportunity.

“People always say it is a changing world,” said Basichis. “But when you see the population shifts along with the rearrangement of the corporate structure and locations in the different cities, you better understand the full scope of the global economy and what doing business in the world will look like five and ten years from now.

“Where once upon a time to conduct employment screening on a given group of employers, most of them were of the same nationality, so the criminal records checks, for example, were pretty much standardized. Today, with a staff of 100 persons, you may be conducting background checks in that one country or running checks in a dozen other places from which the staff has emigrated.”

Basichis indicated that the global market is wide open for corporate partnerships, co-ventures, and mergers and acquisitions. He noted that this is a change in paradigm for private equity and venture capital groups looking to engage with companies with offices in the key cities of the world.

“Our recent business junket has given us a better idea of what ranges of international background checks we can offer to our different clients,” said Basichis. “Depend on the client and its specific needs, in meeting with different vendors from around the world, we feel even more capable of suggesting the types of screening packages that would best apply to employment screening, investigation, or due diligence. Traveling overseas can be arduous, but it was well worth the effort. Next year, we are planning on visiting researchers in Asia.”
