2018 looks to be a great year for job growth and with that comes the anticipated seasonal overflows. When these spikes in hiring occur, your customers will be looking to you to help them get the needed personnel through the verifications process and onto the awaiting jobs...

Anytime we talk about the various methods criminal research can be conducted, we always point out the difference between an in-person visit to a Courthouse, versus conducting research online. Numerous States and Counties provide immediate online access to criminal record information through sponsored websites, some for free, some through subscription methods. Without getting too far down the rabbit hole of ‘conventional’ versus ‘automated’ research, we’d like this blog post to specifically feature the key differences with the TYPES of Automated Criminal Research that we provide our customers.

Ask anyone that knows a thing or two about Background Screening, and they’ll tell you one of the most important components of a quality-driven background check is a County Criminal Search.  This is often considered the end-all-be-all for truly accurate and verified information on a person’s background.  With this being the case, there’s always a strong drive to obtain this information as quickly, as accurately, and of course, as cost-effectively as possible.  Wherever there’s a perceived gap in any of those three areas, Background Screening Firms always want to ‘shorten the gap’ as a means of getting court information in the best way possible.  To that end, SJV has taken the next step in shortening this gap for our customers…we utilize a direct source method we call our ‘Proprietary Researcher Network’.

As we roll into the fourth quarter of 2017, its a great time to review the year so far and start looking ahead into 2018 and beyond. Certainly, there’s a lot that goes into planning for and operating a growing business in the background screening industry…but the one thing I’ve always encouraged my team to remain focused on at all times is our CULTURE! Everything we do at SJV revolves around culture, especially as it relates to our people. We take great pride in the efforts we exert towards ensuring members of our team exhibit all our Core Values. That’s what this blog is all about, sharing with you what SJV’s Core Values are, and why for us they are non-negotiable intangibles and the very foundation of our success.
