Recommendations Coming from the Right Places
June 1, 2005
A recent positive trend we have noticed is the proactive steps associations and federal agencies have taken to make their members aware of background checks and the important role they play in making an informed hiring decision. Just today, the FDIC released pre-employment screening guidelines to their constituency. These guidelines were established to help their members develop an effective program and to make them aware of the steps others take to manage their risk in the workplace.
Another great example of the proactive steps we have seen are industry conferences being conducted across the country focusing solely on background checks. The chemical industry, for example is holding the Chemical Security Summit in Baltimore in June.
This is a great trend and one I hope to see continue for the foreseeable future.
