Background Checks and Resume Verifications Protect Employers

When employers forego background checks on prospective employees, their lack of foresight can come back to haunt them.

background checks, pre-employment screening, resume verification, education verification

If you are a business owner, manager, or work in the human resources department of a company, you’ve probably hired employees who have been less than truthful on their resumes. In fact, recent studies indicate that 75 percent of all resumes contain some form of falsification and fully 89 percent are misleading.

Even though the numbers alone make the case for background checks and resume verification, employers often forgo pre-employment screening of applicants. When they do, the employers’ lack of foresight can come back to haunt them. In some cases, companies have been found liable for negligent hiring and retention. In other cases, employers have faced public relations nightmares. Not too long ago, a prestigious university made the news when it was discovered that their admissions officer had allegedly lied about her educational background, and had not received the degrees she had claimed. In the most tragic cases, workplace violence has claimed innocent lives.

Pre-employment screening and background checks prove due diligence, and so can prevent lawsuits claiming negligent hiring. And, by screening out unqualified applicants, employers can save time and money otherwise wasted by recruiting, hiring, and training the wrong applicants. Resume verification and education verification can even help head off wrongful termination lawsuits.

Companies that provide employment screening offer a number of services. The type of screening that best serves you often depends upon the industry in which you work. For example, in the healthcare industry, background checks typically include a state criminal report, a social security number report, education verification, employment verification, a professional license check, a medical abuse check, and a sex offender check.

Those companies that hire delivery drivers or that employ long-haul truckers most often benefit from a national criminal report, a social security number report, a motor vehicle report and a license verification. Educational institutions and childcare centers usually request a national criminal report, a social security number report, a sex offender check, education verification, and employment verification. Those who work in the accounting or finance departments of companies should undergo a national criminal report, a social security number check, a credit check, education verification, employment verification, and an OFAC terrorist check.

Once you make the sensible decision to do pre-employment screening, how do you go about selecting the right company to do background checks? First, look for a well-established company that has a proven track record in both quality and accuracy. Next, make sure that they guarantee confidentiality. Third, check to see that they employ licensed investigators and provide you with the opportunity to speak to a live researcher. Finally, select a company that does both domestic and international searchers, and that does hands-on court research in the United States.

In today’s litigious society, and with the prevalence of dissembling on resumes and employment applications, you can’t afford to forego background checks and pre-employment screening of your employees and applicants. It’s a small price to pay for the peace of mind you’ll have knowing that the people you hire are who they claim to be.

Law of Attraction Classics: Your Invisible Power – How to Attract the Things You Desire – Genevieve Behrend

By , November 19, 2014 9:11 pm

What if you got the opportunity to study as the sole student under the greatest mind alive? That’s what Genevieve Behrend did, persuading Thomas Troward (Edinburgh Lectures) to take her on – using solely the power of the Law of Attraction. In this excerpt from her book, Invisible Power, Behrend tells us how that power worked for her to change her life – and actually continues to work for you to get you whatever you want in life…

law of attraction, secret, self-help, lawattraction, money, wealth, power, health, success, thunk, religion, spirituality, make money, online

The power within you which enables you to form a thought picture is the starting point of all there is. In its original state it is the undifferentiated formless substance of life.

Your thought picture forms the mould (so to speak) into which this formless substance takes shape. Visualizing, or mentally seeing things and conditions as you wish them to be, is the condensing, the specializing power in you that might be illustrated by the lens of a magic lantern.

The magic lantern is one of the best symbols of this imaging faculty. It illustrates the working of the Creative Spirit on the plane of the initiative and selection (or in its concentrated specializing form) in a remarkably clear manner.

This picture slide illustrates your own mental picture -invisible in the lantern of your mind until you turn on the light of your will. That is to say, you light up your desire with absolute faith that the Creative Spirit of Life, in you, is doing the work.

By the steady flow of light of the will on the Spirit, your desired picture is projected upon the screen of the physical world, an exact reproduction of the pictured slide in your mind.

Visualizing without a will sufficiently steady to inhibit every thought and feeling contrary to your picture would be as useless as a magic lantern without the light.

On the other hand, if your will is sufficiently developed to hold your picture in thought and feeling, without any “ifs,” simply realizing that your thought is the great attracting power, then your mental picture is as certain to be projected upon the screen of your physical world as any pictured slide put into the best magic lantern ever made.

Try projecting the picture in a magic lantern with a light that is constantly shifting from one side to the other, and you will have the effect of an uncertain will. It is as necessary that you should always stand back of your picture with a strong, steady will, as it is to have a strong steady light back of a picture slide.

The joyous assurance with which you make your picture is the very powerful magnet of Faith, and nothing can obliterate it. You are happier than you ever were, because you have learned to know where your source of supply is, and you rely upon its never-failing response to your given direction.

When all said and done, happiness is the one thing which every human being wants, and the study of visualization enables you to get more out of life than you ever enjoyed before. Increasing possibilities keep opening out, more and more, before you.

A business man once told me that since practicing visualization and forming the habit of devoting a few minutes each day to thinking about his work as he desired it to be in a large, broad way, his business had more than doubled in six months. His method was to go into a room every morning before breakfast and take a mental inventory of his business as he had left it the evening before, and then enlarge upon it.

He said he expanded and expanded in this way until his affairs were in remarkably successful condition. He would see himself in his office doing everything that he wanted done. His occupation required him to meet many strangers every day. In his mental picture he saw himself meeting these people, understanding their needs and supplying them in just the way they wished.

This habit, he said, had strengthened and steadied his will in an almost inconceivable manner. Furthermore, by thus mentally seeing things as he wished them to be, he had acquired the confident feeling that a certain creative power was exercising itself, for him and through him, for the purpose of improving his little world.

When you first begin to visualize seriously, you may feel, as many others do, that someone else may be forming the same picture you are, and that naturally would not suit your purpose. Do not give yourself any unnecessary concern about this. Simply try to realize that your picture is an orderly exercise of the Universal Creative Power specifically applied.

Then you may be sure that no one can work in opposition to you. The universal law of harmony prevents this. Endeavor to bear in mind that your mental picture is Universal Mind exercising its inherent powers of initiative and selection specifically.

God, or Universal Mind, made man for the special purpose of differentiating Himself through him. Everything that is, came into existence in this same way, by this self-same law of self-differentiation, and for the same purpose.

First the idea, the mental picture or the prototype of the thing, which is the thing itself in its incipiency or plastic form.

The Great Architect of the Universe contemplated Himself as manifesting through His polar opposite, matter, and the idea expanded and projected itself until we have a world -many worlds.

Many people ask, “But why should we have a physical world at all?” The answer is: Because it is the nature of originating substance to solidify, under directivity rather than activity, just as it is the nature of wax to harden when it becomes cold, or plaster of paris to become firm and solid when exposed to the air.

Your picture in this same Divine substance in its fluent state taking shape through the individualized center of Divine operation, your mind; and there is no power to prevent this combination of spiritual substance from becoming physical form. It is the nature of Spirit to complete its work and an idea is not complete until it has made for itself a vehicle.

Nothing can prevent your picture from coming into concrete form except the same power that gave it birth – yourself. Suppose you wish to have a more orderly room. You look about your room and the idea of order suggests boxes, closets, shelves, hooks and so forth.

The box, the closet, the hooks, all are concrete ideas of order. Vehicles through which order and harmony suggest themselves.

Background Checks And Public Records

Whenever you need to look up public records you usually have to take a trip down to a public office in order to get what you need. This involves driving to the town hall, dealing with an intermediate person, and maybe having to wait a while to get the information you need. With the internet becoming more and more rapidly the source of our information every day you should definitely get in on the research opportunities that the internet offers. Well, I bet you have heard the clich?that nowadays you can find almost anything you want on the internet and I bet you did not believe that it was true at all. Well, guess what, it definitely is true. You can find any kinds of public records online that you would normally have to take a trip to the town hall to find. You can look these up quickly and easily on the internet rather than going through a lot of hassle to get them in a physical hard copy.

If you do not really know how to do research on the internet then that might be the problem you are experiencing when trying to find out really specific kinds of information that you might need. Commonly, you cannot find this kind of information by just using a search engine. However, there are specific sites set up with this information all compiled and organize into one place that is easy to use and has no hassle for you because it links you directly to the information you are looking for. So if you just look around on the internet for these kinds of sites then you will have no trouble at all finding the information that you need whenever you need it.

Popular searches tend to deal with sex offender records and criminal background checks. This shows that people can use this site to protect themselves by remaining knowledgeable about the people that they need to have trust in. Employers can also use this when they are looking to hire someone new and need to do a quick check to verify information and to make sure that the person is actually trustworthy enough to perform the job. Another great thing is that you can just get this information whenever you need it.

A lot of people ask the same question a lot. The most frequently asked question is if something like this is legal and usable by everyone. The answer is certainly yes. No one would allow you to get hard copies of these records in your town if it were not legal and completely normal for you to have access to them. Also, these are compiled to help you find information hat you need to know to make sure you are safe. These records are all public records that you could get in other ways but this is just a much more convenient method of getting the same information that you are looking for because you have a need of it.

The Science of Manifesting Money Faster

There are many ancient ways of expanding your state of being to fuel money rapidly into your life. It is miraculous in its results if you would remain open minded.

Manifesting money, law of attraction, manifest

There is a greater science to manifesting money faster. You can easily learn to apply it to your life and begin to see great results immediately. Very few people know or understand these techniques; as a result most people struggle to truly in manifesting more money or the things they truly desire to manifest.

One of the first things you may have done to begin manifesting is to begin an affirmation program or to visualize. While visualization and affirmations are extremely important there still leave most people frustrated. “So what’s missing they ask??

While you may be repeating affirmation in hopes of manifesting money you are continuing to lock yourself into the same space of lack and poverty that you are trying to escape. You are like the little engine at the bottom of the hill repeating senselessly, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.? But, the little engine has no fuel, no power to push him up the hill.

Nothing happens, no change happens and the money you are hoping to manifest does not come. Manifesting money requires that you expand, that you gain a large quantity of mind, body and spiritual fuel.

There are many ancient techniques that are not shared with the public when it comes to manifesting. At the basis of each technique there is a science, a secret that is not clearly explained. So you continue to try.

Words alone do not manifest. At the foundation of words there is energy. Do you really understand the energy behind the words that you are using? Do you understand that the science of manifesting money requires certain energy?

Manifesting money faster requires that you have an immense thought power that is greater than the energy that you are presently experiencing.

Many people succeed in manifesting something in their life. However the following day they are unable to manifest something else. It confuses them that they were successful with manifesting one thing but not the other.

Somehow if they examined their own state of being when they were successful they will realize a delicious secret. They may realize that were in a more free and expanded state when they were successful. There are many ancient ways of expanding your state of being to fuel money rapidly into your life. It is miraculous in its results if you would remain open minded.

Still waiting on your background Checks

Background checks of an employee is a critical aspect of the recruitment process. All companies outsource the background checks of their employees to external agencies. Now let us understand why background checks are important. The primary reason why background checks are important is to check the past employment records of the prospective employee, education verification and to check whether the employee has been involved in any unlawful activities. Social security number checks are also done by the employers. Pre employment screening has become one of the most important aspect of the employment process without which companies do not generally give the offer letter to the employees. The HR team insists that a candidate with a clean background is an asset to the company because most jobs involve critical information which the company cannot afford to lose to competition. Let us see how this process is executed by professional screening firms which check the records of an employee.

Generally a company may ask the screening firm to execute a fixed set of tasks. These may include social security
number trace, employment history background check, criminal background and general employment background screening. It may include other tasks also such as Federal records check, I9 compliance and driver history. The professional screening agency gets down to these tasks immediately and gives a response within the agreed timeframe. Time is critical in this business because if the employer is taking more time in completing the verification checks the employee may join some other company. Based upon the feedback that the company gets from the employment screening service it is decided whether the candidate should be absorbed in the company or not. However, there are certain parameters that are followed by employers before they reject the employee. If it is found that the details given in the records are not matching entirely, then the candidate is not selected at all. However, if there are minor discrepancies the company may consider the case and take a decision on whether to hire the employee or not. The job of an employment screening agency is critical as it can make or break the career of an employee. Therefore it is important for an employer to hire a agency which can do the job professionally with correct results and within the shortest possible timeframe possible.

Even a decade ago employment verification checks were not considered so seriously by employers except the larger multinationals. However, in recent times even smaller companies ensure that the employee records are verified before the employee joins the organization. As a result employment screening services have come into much demand. Let me give you a brief idea of how this job is executed. The screening agency has agents who either call up the respective educational institutes or if required they visit the place physically to check the records provided. They also check the police records, license records and SSN details of employee that is screened. Drug records are also verified by the screening company. The company that hires a professional screening agency saves on time and money. The average turnaround time for a verification agency is less and a
report is generally submitted within 24-48 hours.

Why is The Law of Attraction so Hard to Apply?

348

The lower your frequency the harder it is for you to actually attract what you want. The law of attraction will simply keep you at the same level where you presently are. There are many ancient practices that can help in shifting a persons over all frequency to astonishingly higher levels very easy and in a matter of minutes.

law of attraction, attraction, manifesting, manifest

Very often people ask, “Why is the law of attraction so hard to apply to my life??
Perhaps you are one of the many people who feel a bit frustrated by the results you are getting.

Most people believe that attraction begins and ends with negative or positive thoughts. While your thoughts do matter there is more to the attraction process and much more to understand about the nature of thought.

You see negative and positive thoughts do have a charge. A negative thought has a much weaker charge than a higher more positive thought.

Success with the law of attraction depends on you having higher thoughts not simple because they affirm what you want to attract but because the higher your over all thought frequency the higher your attraction.

For most people it is quite hard to elevate their thought vibration to a higher more powerful frequency. It’s not as easy as simply saying, “Today, I am going to think positive thoughts.? After many years of thinking in a negative way a persons over all frequency is quite low and it will take a little extra to change that over all frequency.

The lower your frequency the harder it is for you to actually attract what you want. The law of attraction will simply keep you at the same level where you presently are. One or two positive thoughts will not automatically make you a magnet for attracting what you want.

There are many ancient practices that can help in shifting a persons over all frequency to astonishingly higher levels very easy and in a matter of minutes. Often we turn away from teachings that are foreign to us but the reality is, if you want to change your life you must be willing to do things differently from the way you have always done it.

You must be willing to be open in order to maximize your understanding of the law of attraction and your ability to manifest what you want.

What would you be willing to do to finally attract what you want easily?

Employee Criminal Background Check

By , November 14, 2014 9:31 pm

Let’s say someone comes to your business looking for a job. They fill out the application and wait for you to call them back for an interview. This is the easy part. Part of the application process should include a piece of paper that your applicant must sign to begin the process of an employee criminal background check.

Now the hard part begins. While they are waiting for you to call them back for an interview, you must call around to check on the references they gave you and if you have more than one applicant this could take quite a bit of your time.

The main reason you want to do an employee criminal background check is to keep your current employees safe and your business running smoothly. You do not want to inadvertently hire someone who will cause you any amount of trouble or try to steal from you.

As I stated earlier, the applicant must give their permission by signing a form for you to begin the process. Background checks are required by law, in some states, especially for jobs involving the care of children and the elderly.

Government jobs that require the applicant to have a high security clearance or one that deals with sensitive, classified information also must be subjected to a criminal background search.

The Fair Credit Reporting Act, or FCRA, is the body of government that handles background checks and they may take weeks to complete. What do you do in the mean time? You could go with your gut and hire the person you think is best for the job based on the information they gave you, or you could wait for the background check to come back.

Here is the sticky part, if you take the time to wait for the checks to come back you may lose out on one of the best employees you would ever have. You could explain that you are waiting for the background check but if someone needs a job they may not have time to wait for you.

This is the chance you take. But with security being on such a high alert these days it also might just be the best thing you can do for your company. Even if your company has nothing to do with government secrets or taking care of other people.

The thing you do not want is someone you hired coming in and then undermining everything you have accomplished over the years by embezzling money or stealing from you in other ways.

It is a lot easier to tear something down than it is to build it up and you do not want to lose everything you have worked for just because you did not wait for the background check to come back or not do one to begin with.

An employee criminal background check is an important tool for prospective employers, like yourself, to use to keep their businesses safe and running smoothly. Do yourself the favor of getting one done on everyone you are considering hiring.

You Get What You Ask For

676

In life we get what we ask for. Everything starts with a thought. A thought is an energy. Energy wants to manifest itself. A lot of thoughts in the same direction will, that’s for sure, manifest in the real world. This is the process of creation. Start thinking positive thoughts. Think only thoughts you wish to see happen in real life. Think only what you want to become true.

power, mind, thoughts, thinking process, positive mindset, creation, realisation, success

In life we get what we ask for.

Now you surely say that it isn’t true. You say you ask for freedom and happiness and all you got was feeling imprisoned and bad.

Let’s have a closer look to how creation works and how our subconscious mind works. Because it’s the same.

Everything that exists is created in someone’s mind. Everything starts with a thought. A thought is an energy. Energy wants to manifest itself. A lot of thoughts in the same direction will, that’s for sure, manifest in the real world.

This is the process of creation.
We are created by the same process. We use this process of creation all the time,
without knowing it.

When we are not conscious, then we are like most people and use this power to create a negative life. We have negative thoughts and get negative results.
Once we learn how to think positive thoughts, we will get positive results in our life.

How come? Our subconscious mind is like the earth. It does not interfere with what we sow. Earth does not say :”Nja I have enough of these carottes, it’s every time the same thing, I will make potatoes of it!?Earth does not say : “Bah I don’t like red flowers, I will turn the red into blue for these roses!?Earth does not interfere. Earth is patient, works in silence and gives us exactly what we put in it. And we KNOW that! We know we will get exactly what we put in the earth. When we put yellow flowers in it, we don’t expect them to be red when they blossom. When we sow roses in the garden we don’t expect onions to come out in spring!

And yet that’s how we react in real life. We sow onions and expect roses. We sow negative thoughts in our mind (onions) and expect good things (roses) to come out! We fool ourselves! And we blame others. We look for who can possibly be the fault of that (usually we blame the parents or the husband/wife for what goes wrong in our life). And then we cry and say we don’t have any luck in our lives. We look at the neighbour and think he’s lucky because he has roses in his garden, and we wonder what we did to the world to deserve only onions in our garden!

When the mainstream of your thoughts is negative, let’s say for 85 %, than the outcome will be negative for 85%. Your thoughts fall into your subconscious mind, which executes exactly what you put in it. It is like the earth. It is like a computer. When you type in your computer : “I am stupid, I am fat, I am ugly, nobody loves me? are you angry with your printer when the paper comes out that says “I am stupid, I am fat, I am ugly, nobody loves me? Do you throw a shoe at your computer and do you yell at him that he is the fault of everything that’s going wrong? No, because you know you put that information in it and your computer does not interfere. The output matches exactly the input.

So works our subconscious mind. If you don’t like the output, change the input. You get exactly what you ask for = what you think of the whole day. Don’t be angry with your life. You are not angry with the onions, are you? You are not angry with your computer, are you? Instead of being angry, learn how it works and learn to get positive results in your life. Start thinking positive thoughts. Think only thoughts you wish to see happen in real life. Think only what you want to become true. And wait for a while, be patient. One day you will harvest what you sew, like you know earth will give you back what you put in it. It is never lost. Just wait and see.

How To Perform A Background Check

There are various reasons why background checking of certain individuals or companies has become necessary. The reason may be as simple as a verification of the credentials of a newly appointed executive in the office. It may be as complicated as digging out the criminal past of a dishonest businessman.

There are various reasons why background checking of certain individuals or companies has become necessary. The reason may be as simple as a verification of the credentials of a newly appointed executive in the office. It may be as complicated as digging out the criminal past of a dishonest businessman. A background check helps in affirming the credibility of certain person or confirms the certainty of some rumors relating to the performance of certain business house. Thus when you are looking for the source of information for your investigation, you should be guided by the context and circumstances of the investigation, and not by convenience or cost factors.

Background check is a form of investigative research and there is a wide range of databases to help you find the necessary information. There are a variety of databases such as specialized databases, and regional and government databases that may be helpful in searching for different types of personal as well as public information. Then there are several research agencies that will supply you with the necessary information for a price. The most renowned among them are LexisNexis, Westlaw, ChoicePoint Online, AutoTrackXP and Accurint, which specialize, in various kinds of public records. For example, if you are tracking the address of a person over the past several years, Accurint will be able to provide you the most comprehensive information about address histories. But if you want to look up some incident in the recent past, then try AutoTrackXP’s database.

In a democratic country such as the United States, the public theoretically has the right to access the government records that may seem relevant to their business. However there are restrictions on how you are allowed to use this information. The investigators who perform the background checks, therefore are required to be familiar with the various laws governing the accessibility to various public information and their permissible uses. The provisions dealing with the permissible uses of different information change with each state. However, most of the laws generally allow access to the information intended to be used for litigation-related purposes.

Up to this point so far, you have identified the context of the research, and you have identified the possible sources of information and the permissible uses of those sources. The next step involves obtaining personal identification information including name, date of birth and Social Security number. Your client may have already provided this information; even so it is your responsibility to verify them. You should also investigate the places where the person had lived and done business previously.

After you have obtained and verified the personal identification of the person in question, you can now proceed to other aspects of the investigation. For example, if you are checking the credentials of an executive, you should then look into his educational background and past employment history. Or if you are verifying rumors about the shady past of a certain person, you should start by checking for any criminal record.

Where Is The Law of Attraction When A Tsunami Hits?

By , November 12, 2014 9:06 am

How the Law of Attraction is at work when something as serious as a Tsunami occurs.

law of attraction, tsunami, attract, vibration, escape, survive, suffer, focus

Several people have written to me asking for help in understanding how the Law of Attraction is at work when something as serious as the tsunami in Asia occurs. If you are wondering the same thing, then this article may help you understand AND keep your own vibration high and clear.

First, listen for stories of people who escaped or survived the tsunami. While the majority of news reports will focus on death and destruction, if you are listening for the positive, you’ll hear about people who missed their flight to Asia, due to a snow storm in New England. You’ll hear about people who decided to tour ancient ruins in the highlands. People will tell how their lives were saved despite being caught in the flood. Many people will wonder why they were NOT caught in the tsunami–that’s Law of Attraction at work.

Second, you don’t have to spend hours listening and watching the news. You really don’t. You know enough already to be aware of what is happening without getting caught up in the vibration of fear and panic, grief and despair. AND if you do watch it, soon you will begin to vibrate that same frequency of fear, panic, grief and despair and the Law of Attraction WILL deliver what you vibrate. No, you don’t want to go there! So, watch a funny movie (yes, you can do that). Read a good novel. Do whatever you need to do to keep your vibration positive.

“But what about all the people who died? Surely they didn’t ask for that!” No, they didn’t ask for this–not on a conscious level. But, let me ask you this question: Is it possible for the Universe, Law of Attraction or God to arrange for so many people to be in the precise place where they will all return to spirit at the same time?

Right now, you are safe. If you are reading this article, you have electricity and a computer…you are fine. Repeat after me: “Today I am fine. Right now, I am safe.” You are.

“How can I help the people who are suffering right now?” Keep your thoughts focused on things that are positive and of high vibration. Visualize food and water reaching people, bringing relief to their bodies and gratitude to their hearts. Contribute financially to relief agencies if you want to help in a material way.

And remember, Law of Attraction is always at work, whether we understand it or not. From “9-11″ to wars, to tsunami floods, to joyous prosperity and celebrations. Everything vibrates and you attract into your life precisely what you are vibrating.
