Corra Group is preparing for the holiday hiring season by offering a suite of background checks that will assist employers in vetting temporary employees quickly an getting them on the job. The holiday employment screening package consists of the more fundamental searches that are offered at a discount.

“We try to give our clients a break, during the holiday season,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Nick Gustavson. “We realize employers and hiring managers are under a lot of stress and the last thing they need is one more impediment to getting their temporary employees on the sales floor.

“Corra Group has trained its staff to offer the more essential background checks that can be bundled according to the needs of the holiday employer,” said Gustavson. “The package typically consists of criminal records checks, including the Nationwide Criminal Database search, which includes the sex offender registry, and the County Criminal Records Search. Typically, nothing more elaborate is needed for most temporary retail hires.

Gustavson noted that while Corra Group traditionally services brick and mortar clients, during the holiday season, there are increasingly more Internet based businesses that will also need to hire additional staff. He pointed out that these can range from food and services venues to selling such hard goods as electronics and clothing.

Corra Group is now offering a comprehensive background report that is designed for corporate research and investigation, and due diligence proceedings. The new multi-layer report includes interviews with relevant subjects, criminal, civil, and corporate records.

“This new due diligence comprehensive background check is designed for global investigative agencies who are working in behalf of their clients,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. This new search instrument should be appealing to venture capital and private equity groups as well as any business or financial entity looking to perform due diligence.

“In general, Corra Group can provide a review of the background and reputation of the subjects,” said Basichis. “The subjects could be the principles of an organization, the corporate entity itself, or both. The report takes note of source of wealth and any potential red flag issues—such occurrences a corrupt or suspicious business practices, possible links to organized crime, money laundering, or questionable business engagements with sanctioned nations. Any significant social and environmental issues are also noted.”

Basichis pointed out that the comprehensive report can include interviews with at least five individuals who have knowledge of the reputation of the corporate entity or the principles. Depending on the nation, he noted, the research report can provide searches for tax records and civil litigation files, as well as property records.

“There are different levels for this report,” said Basichis. “The more comprehensive will include Internet and Media Searches, as well as thorough investigation of any criminal records. The report can be domestic or for corporate and individual subjects in nations around the world. As different nations have different limitations on the information they make available, there are some restrictions for different countries.

“We have provided this report to different clients and they have been quite pleased with the results. The positive response is overwhelming. The report serves as a perfect accessory to business credit reports, corporate records searches, and the other background checks we conduct foreign and domestic for corporate research. This search is but one more in the arsenal of background checks, Corra Group can offer.

Basichis noted as the world changes and the global market becomes more volatile, there will be an increased need for comprehensive business research reports. He pointed out that with all the deception and financial malfeasance business entities are increasingly uncomfortable working with limited information.

Corra Group provides services for the trucking and transportation industry.  We assist our clients with remaining in compliance with the Department of Transportation standards.    We have any number of services  regarding background checking and employment screening packages for the trucking and transportation industry. So, naturally, when we see an innovative take like this we report it.  An Uber-like twist on the trucking industry where truck drivers are texted jobs and can show up at the depot and loading docks for work.

As the Wall Street Journal article reports, some new startup companies will help reinvent the trucking industry and how businesses are conducted.

According to the article…”A series of startups are vying to become an “Uber of trucking,” leveraging truck drivers’ smartphones to quickly connect them with nearby companies looking to ship goods. The upstarts aim to reinvent a fragmented U.S. trucking industry that has long relied on third-party brokers, essentially travel agents for trucking who connect truckers with customers.”

We shall see if it takes hold.
