christmas-carols_8-things-to-love-about-the-holiday-seasonCorra Group is readying itself for the seasonal rush of employment screening. The El Segundo, California based background checking service believes this holiday season will be more unique as a larger portion of holiday shopping shifts to the e-commerce platforms.

“There is a paradigm shift in the way consumers conduct their holiday shopping,” said Corra Group Co-founder, Nick Gustavson. “Brick and Mortar retail sales are still strong, but the E-Commerce model is rapidly taking over. According to a November, 2015 article in Bloomberg, there were more online shoppers than brick and mortar consumers during last year’s pivotal Black Friday weekend. We expect there will be more of the same as consumers move increasingly to E-Commerce platforms.

“For Corra Group, this means creating employment screening packages that cover the needs of both business models,” said Gustavson. “The other factor with E-Commerce shopping is the resurgence in trucking as the retailers and carriers need to hire more drivers to service the holiday season. This means conducting motor vehicle driving records on the drivers as well as criminal background checks.”

Gustavson points out that Corra Group can provide MVRS for drivers in every state in the nation as well as Canada. He noted that driving records in most states will return from the state Department of Motor Vehicles in approximately sixty seconds.

Corra Group and Social Intelligence Announce Plans to Strengthen Their Long-Term Partnership

Corra Group and Social Intelligence have announced plans to increase cooperation in their long-term partnership. Corra Group in the El Segundo, California based background screening company, and Social Intelligence is a leading provider of social media hiring reports.

“We are delighted to be strengthening our partnership with Social Intelligence,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. “We began our engagement several years ago when we first started ordering from Social Intelligence their FCRA Compliance Social Media Reports. Since then we have furnished hundreds of these reports to our clients, especially those in the finance sector as well as entertainment and advertising companies throughout the United States.

“Our clients have valued these social media reports and have told us these background checking instruments help determine if the candidate is both a good fit for that workplace environment, or if behavioral red flags indicate a potential for liability issues,” said Basichis. “Some of our advertising clients use them to better vet candidates for focus groups and commercial campaigns where the end advertiser may not find certain applicants in keeping with their branding standards.

“Through our social media reports, clients have discovered material that is racist and/or demonstrative of intolerance, sexually explicit, potentially unlawful, and potentially violent,” said Basichis. “This kind of a behavior is a no-go in the modern employment environment and fraught with potential liability issues.”
