Corra Group Prepares for First Quarter Employment Screening Demand on News of Economic Recovery

Corra Group is preparing for a surge of employment screening orders as its clients ramp up on news of a strong economic recovery for 2014. Given the surge in domestic production of durable goods, the El Segundo based background screening service believes it will be a robust first quarter.

“First quarters are often strong for us,” said Gordon Basichis, Co-Founder of Corra Group. “Employers determine their hiring needs and new budgets are allocated for staffing. Typically, most employers are happy to be over and done with the old year and are looking forward to making new headway in the year ahead.”

Since projections for 2014 show a pretty determined economic recovery, it would stand to reason companies will be hiring more people. Many employers have been dealing for so long with a pared down staff, cutting to the bone in some cases, they are finding their employees overworked and restless. Employers need bring in additional personnel.”

Basichis noted that most employers have increased their budgets for employment screening. He cited that the vagaries of staffing and recruiting necessitate that employers conduct a more comprehensive series of background checks.
