PLAY BALL! After a long winter, baseball fans have been patiently (or some impatiently) to hear the umpire say those two words. It is time for the boys of summer to hit the diamonds for the return of the summer classic. Opening Day of baseball brings hope and anticipation for any baseball fan. It is the day when very record resets and each player and team starts fresh with dreams of winning the World Series in their heads. In some cities, Opening Day is considered a city holiday. For this life-long Cleveland Indians fan, it is a time to celebrate being American League Champions and the amazing World Series against the Chicago Cubs and hope for a championship for the 2017 season.

Baseball and Background Screening

Don’t strike out with outdated background screening processes. Sterling can help employers and HR professionals manage their background screening programs to score home runs for their candidates and run the bases of hiring success.

It is important for a company to be compliant with FCRA, EEOC, local and state regulations and guidelines to prevent swings and misses with a background screening program. Avoid popping out or hitting into a double play by having the right hiring solutions in place. Sterling offers a comprehensive hiring solution from traditional background screening checks to onboarding solutions to help employers increase their RBI’s (or hiring percentages).

Step Up To the Plate

Employers are stepping up to the plate to try to get “a hit” candidate while also making their employee background screening processes manageable and streamlined. Score more runs by having the right employee screening processes:

Single: Hit a single in the background screening process by making sure that all candidate information is filled out correctly. Don’t get caught stealing by not having the proper consent forms signed before performing a background check.

Double: Keep running the bases of hiring success by selecting background screening services, such as criminal background checks, education and employment verifications, or drug and health screening.

Triple: Slide into third base with a triple by adding additional screening solutions including reference checks, social media searches or motor vehicle records checks.

Homerun: Hit a home run by adding onboarding for a full end-to-end hiring solution. If the bases are loaded, go for the grand slam by creating welcoming and memorable first-day activities.
