Corra Group Gears Up for First Quarter Surge in Employment Screening

Share Article

As employers develop their 2019 hiring budgets, Corra Group prepares for a surge in first quarter employment screening.

"Corra Group services businesses both nationally and globally," said Corra Group Co-Founder, Nick Gustavson. "Besides the usual domestic background checks, we offer a full complement of international background searches."

Corra Group is gearing up for what has become the first quarter surge in employment screening. In recent times, in the past few years particularly, employers have qualified their employment requirements and typically get the new year started with a series of new hires.

“Corra Group will typically see a significant surge in background checks as employers move to hire staff for the coming year,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Nick Gustavson. Usually, the first two weeks in January are pretty quiet as clients get their ducks in a row, but this year we are already seeing increased hiring patterns.

“Human Resources Managers are going through the interviewing process right now at a quicker pace,” said Gustavson. “The job market is strong and quality candidates can often be hard to find. If an employer deliberates too long, they will often lose that candidate to a competitor. With the job market as it is, employers can’t allow any grass to grow.”

Gustavson pointed out that Corra services large multinational companies as well as mid-size businesses and startups. He noted that each employer has different requirements for background checks and Corra Group will consult first with a client and then customize the necessary employment screening package. The client can then order reports at will.

“Corra Group is headquartered in El Segundo, California,” said Gustavson. “We service businesses both nationally and globally. Besides the usual domestic background checks, we offer a full complement of international searches. We see this as critical, given the number for foreign hires that are recruited for any workforce. International Education Verification searches are a necessity, as the number of degree discrepancies is pretty substantial. Job applicants make claims they can’t support.

“This year is starting off with a bang,” said Gustavson. By the end of first quarter, given the hiring search, we expect to see increases from last year’s employment screening volume. Last year was pretty terrific for us. Despite all the rumblings, from what we see, this year may be a year of even greater expansion.”

BACKGROUND: Corra operates as Corra Group and Corra Global Research and specializes in pre-employment and corporate research and due diligence It is one of the few companies that will answer the phone.
