Corra Group has added several background checks to its service for business research and executive level employment screening. These searches are in response to increased demand and designed for both due diligence and recruiting purposes to assist clients with determining of the subject or candidate has any potential conflicts of interest.

“We are now offering two types of Social Media Reports,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. “One report is for employment screening purposes, and the other is for due diligence and corporate research. These Social Media Reports are are proving increasingly popular with private equity, venture capital, and other financial groups. The social media reports are cost effective and in short course our clients can determine any negative information on their candidates that populates the Internet.

Basichis pointed out that in addition to the Social Media Reports and the typical criminal records and civil records checks, Corra Group now offers a Corporate Records Search. The Corporate Records search will reveal a principle’s history of business affiliations.

“The Corporate Records search helps examine where a candidate has held office previously,” said Basichis. “We recently started offering this background report and our finance clients, especially, are particularly enthusiastic. “This search helps determine whether he was a member of the board, director, owner, partner, or any actual principle. The search is especially helpful in determine any current associations that may prove a conflict of interest. From employers and private equity investors alike the last thing they need is to employee someone only to discover he is part a company with similar interests as their own. Worst case scenario, he can siphon off clients of funding without anyone knowing it, until it’s too late.”

As the Trucking and Transportation Industry experiences a variety of challenges facing the early quarter of 2015, Corra Group is assisting truckers with their Department of Transportation compliance mandates by offering discounted pricing on motor vehicle driving records and other employment screening services. According to a January 22nd article on CNN, the trucking industry as a whole may see as much as 20 thousand layoffs by June, with most of it related to the drivers in the oil and gas related industries.

“We are seeing a drop in new hires with our trucking clients who service the oil and natural gas industries,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. “It was booming for quite a few years, but now with the declining price of gas and, especially, oil, there isn’t the demand there was for drivers just a couple of years ago.

“The energy industry has been to some extent a rags to riches situation,” said Basichis. “With so many oil and gas fields up in North Dakota, Oklahoma, Texas, and so many other states, it was as if Christmas came early for a good many truckers. The work is tough, but the pay is rewarding. When it is booming truckers are in high demand. But now, that is not so much the case. When there’s talk of laying off some twenty thousand drivers, that can prove damaging to the industry, especially, and the economy, overall.”

These systems are user friendly and priced competitively. A client can add or subtract its employees from the monitoring list as it sees fit.”
