Background Screening For New Hires

[ 0 ] Sep. 12, 2011 | SBO Editor


Innovative Enterprises, Inc., a strategic partner to the background screening industry and expert provider of court research information products, smart data solutions and ancillary services, announced the official launch of its Infinity Screening™ advanced post-hire screening solution.

Infinity Screening™ leverages Innovative’s industry-leading National Criminal Information Scan™ and monitors enrolled employees on an ongoing basis, alerting users to new criminal record information as well as changes to existing records.  Simplified management tools empower users to easily manage pools of hundreds of thousands of enrolled employees with a few simple clicks.  Using Infinity Screening™, employers can proactively identify factors which increase their risk to negligent retention claims, workplace violence, loss due to internal shrinkage and public embarrassment through negative publicity.

“As recent events such as the EEOC’s July 26th hearing titled, ‘Arrest and Conviction Records as a Barrier to Employment’ illustrate, employers may soon bear the burden of making informed hiring decisions without the benefit of some or all of the information they are accustomed to relying upon,” stated Clifford J. Williams, Innovative’s Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.  ”At the same time, employers remain obligated to provide a safe workplace for their employees and clients, and they have a vested interest in identifying risks which increase their exposure to liability.  The employer should know if their company driver picked up a DUI charge, if their child day care worker was arrested for molestation, if their cashier was indicted for embezzlement or if their in-home service technician was arrested for assault and battery.  Infinity Screening™ resolves these concerns by proactively monitoring employees’ public record information post-hire, alerting the employer to events which may represent an increased risk in their workplace or a danger to their employees and customers.”

Infinity Screening™ is not sold directly to employers but is instead available through Innovative’s carefully-selected network of Screening Industry Partners™.
