We just published a great case study about our relationship with the folks at Lighthouse Academies.  Check out the preview below.

Every employer knows that hiring the most qualified individuals is smart business. But when your business is helping to transform the lives and futures of America’s underserved children, hiring the most qualified people isn’t merely smart. It’s essential.

Just ask Cheryl Bates, Director of Operations at Lighthouse Academies’ (LHA) national office in Framingham, Massachusetts. LHA is a nonprofit organization that works with students in underserved communities across the country, preparing them for college through a rigorous arts-infused program led by a staff of trusted teachers and volunteers. Every member of LHA’s staff is charged with instilling the knowledge, skills and values their students need for responsible citizenship and life-long learning.

“We take our mission very seriously,” says Bates. “As a result, we require every LHA teacher, volunteer and staff member to be thoroughly screened and background-checked. There’s no such thing as being too careful or too thorough, not with the safety of our scholars and the quality of their education in our hands.”

It was this unflinching dedication to quality and the wellbeing of its students that prompted LHA to seek a new provider to conduct its background checks.

“Over time, we discovered deficiencies in the screening resources we were using,” Bates says. “For example, we learned that instant background checks are definitely not thorough background checks. They actually leave a lot to be desired, despite their claims. We also realized that many of the popular databases simply aren’t extensive enough to meet LHA’s needs, and many of the vendors don’t update their information frequently enough. That’s why we began researching alternative screening providers and it’s what led us to EmployeeScreenIQ.”
