MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA (March 30, 2015) – Brandywine Consulting Group, Inc and Primepoint, LLC have joined services and products to provide employment background screening integrated within the human resources and payroll management processes.
Predatory actions in the workplace, losses from stolen intellectual property or other assets, and the potential dangers from misrepresented skills, experience, or educational achievements are increasingly becoming common topics for senior managers and executives as well as board directors.
The cost for businesses or nonprofits to recover from illegal, improper, or violent actions of an employee (whether full-time, part-time, or contract) or of a volunteer/intern can critically damage their operations, finances, and reputation. Even more than the products or services it provides, the trust and harmony of an organization’s workforce and the reputation and trust that it has with its clients and investors are the assets that are the most difficult to replace or rebuild.
From a risk management perspective, the cost of defending against (or recovering from) harmful incidents is significant. At the same time, the staying on top of the ongoing introduction of new regulations at the federal, state, and local level to protect individuals from discrimination or negligence has become a fact of doing business. This raises the bar for businesses to properly recruit and acquire talent as well as to defend themselves against discrimination or non-compliance claims, the cost of which can be both operationally distracting and financially draining.
Safe Hiring Practices (which incorporate credible background screening and verification as part of a comprehensive safe hiring program) should be a standard practice for building workforces in organizations of all types, sizes, and life-stages. BCGSmartCheck provides the full spectrum of employment-related assessment, screening and verification, as well as employment drug testing.
Through this partnership, Primepoint, now offers customers the ability to efficiently initiate, report, and manage the background screening process from within its payroll and human resource management system.
