Do your background checks uncover racism? Ensure new hires do not destroy your culture and reputation.

Many Americans are lashing out on social media with controversial political and social statements. When vetting prospective employees, you need to pay particular attention to evidence of racism that may manifest itself in the workplace or among the workforce outside of business hours.

You can meet this challenge with thorough background checks of all job applicants. It is particularly critical to undertake this process during these turbulent times.
