Additional Information



Candidate Screening, Background Screening

In education, a strong reputation can make all the difference in getting top faculty, resources, and funding. Trust your brand to a higher-ed partner that 55% of the Fortune 100 rely on to protect their organization through smarter hiring practices.

Promote Safer Communities.

Educational institutions should be a safe haven for learning and growth. But safety concerns can irreparably damage reputations and make students, alumni, and donors think twice about getting involved. Foster an environment that invites affiliation by thoroughly screening individuals working on and off campus.
