In today’s highly competitive jobs market, applicants looking for new employment use every tool at their disposal to gain an edge. Unfortunately, that often includes embellishing their resumes to the point of making material misrepresentations as to their credentials, accomplishments and even their criminal history.
While padding resumes and non-disclosure of key background information has become a common part of the job-seeking process for applicants, it can take on truly catastrophic proportions when it starts happening in the search for executive talent.
Corporate Resolutions is a company dedicated to the vetting of corporate job candidates at the executive level. Corporate Resolutions can help companies that are looking to hire new top-level management go from being 90 percent sure that their new hire is a good fit to being 100 percent sure. Yet, this is not a luxury. When looking to fill positions that will entail the discretion and the power to take the company towards either success or annihilation, knowing exactly what you’re getting from your new candidate is imperative.
Corporate Resolutions can validate background information with 100 percent certainty
Although most human resources departments have a firm grasp on the basics of vetting potential job candidates, many times, they fall short of completing comprehensive investigations. While this may be good enough when hiring low-level employees, hiring those who will have full domain over the company’s assets and who will be its public face for years or decades to come requires absolute certainty.
Corporate Resolutions can fully verify all Social Security Number data as well as name and address history, including any list of aliases and time out of the country. While this may sound almost redundant when hiring figures that are likely to be at least somewhat high profile, there have been actual instances of corporate executives who have used false names and information to hide past activities. The full name and Social Security validation also serve as the cornerstone for later analyses, particularly, the comprehensive criminal background check.
At the end of the Corporate Resolutions full Social Security and name validation process, you will know, with 100 percent certainty, who your candidate is. However, this is only the beginning of what Corporate Resolutions brings to the table.
Complete seven-year felony check at both the state and federal level
The foundation of every Corporate Resolutions background check is the building of the candidate’s comprehensive criminal history. Due to its access to thousands of proprietary and public databases, including those in foreign countries, Corporate Resolutions certifies that it will build a 100 percent comprehensive and accurate criminal history going back at least seven years.
With the proliferation of online background check services, this may seem like a footnote. However, the majority of internet-based background checks do not come anywhere near the level of comprehensiveness of a Corporate Resolutions criminal history.
By collating a comprehensive life history of the candidate, Corporate Resolutions can delve into every jurisdiction where that person has ever lived, giving a complete picture of their criminal history that doesn’t miss a thing. Other services are likely to miss large swaths of a person’s criminal history just due to the fact that criminal records in the United States are highly fragmented. Corporate Resolutions is one of the only companies in the country that currently delivers a truly comprehensive criminal background check, letting you rest assured that you are dealing with the complete picture of the candidate’s criminal history.
Aside from the candidate’s criminal history, the verification of their education information, including all degrees, diplomas, and professional certifications, is one of the most important elements of an executive background investigation. Corporate Resolutions specializes in not only determining whether stated degrees are actually valid but also in determining everything from grade-point average right down to disciplinary actions, participation in student extracurricular activities and even the perceived character of the individual in question.
With the combined knowledge that all of these elements of a comprehensive executive background check give you, you will have the power to make the right choice, weeding out the candidates who don’t fit the criteria for the job and ensuring the strong managerial continuity of your firm. Corporate Resolutions can help you get there safely.
