Background Information at Your Fingertips

Has Sally been convicted of fraud? Has John really disclosed his actual salary? It’s important to carefully screen job applicants and two of the world’s leading providers of employee information are making it easier than ever.

Now firms can find the answers to these questions and others of a background nature with immediate access to detailed, accurate information. Human resource professionals can access the Internet and know within minutes if Sally or John have “problems” lurking in their past.

PeopleWise, a leading online pre-employment screening company, and TALX Corporation, the leading provider of information-based employee service solutions, have teamed together to bring quick, valid information to clients. Clients of The Work Number(R), a Talx service and the nation’s largest database for automated employment and salary verification, will now also have access to the in-depth data available through PeopleWise.

By combining the services of both companies, human resource professionals will have more information than ever before at the tip of their fingers. And all this information is as close as the Internet. PeopleWise’s software allows companies to automate their pre-employment screening process while sending all applicant information through the computer. The InstaCheck(TM) report is available to the user in seconds and verifies information such as name, aliases, current and previous addresses, social security and telephone numbers. If more information is required, the search can be elevated to HireWise(TM), which provides national criminal background checks, driving records, credit histories, civil records searches and verification of previous employment, professional licenses and education.
