In this week’s installment of The Proactive Employer, we talk about how organizations currently use background checks, how they respond to adverse findings, their greatest concerns, and what lies ahead with guest Nick Fishman. Mr. Fishman is co-founder and Executive Vice President of EmployeeScreenIQ.
