This Just In:  The Number One Reason Employers Conduct Background Investigations is Public Safety 

A full 89 percent of employers stated they conduct background investigations to protect employees, customers, and others.  Improving the quality of hires was the second most popular reason, protecting company reputation was third, and law/regulation requirements fourth. 

More from the survey HR.com conducted on behalf of the National Association of Background Screeners is coming when the full results of the recent survey are released.  Stay tuned!

Recently Commercial Investigations has been expanding our team, so we’d like to welcome Joshua Landy!

Josh says the best way to start his morning is waking up to his alarm, giving his dog Mulan some love, and eating cereal while watching ESPN (Cinnamon Toast Crunch is his favorite).  Josh is determined to be a successful working man who can provide for his family.  He also aspires to win every football fantasy league, EVER.  Eating sweet potato pie with vanilla ice cream and homemade macaroni and cheese are two good reasons why Thanksgiving is his favorite holiday.  Also enjoyable during the holiday season is picking on his younger relatives, and Black Friday shopping.  Josh says the best advice he has ever received is, “Surround yourself with successful people if you want to be successful.”  Although, he still hasn’t grown out of leaving his room a mess.

Welcome Joshua!

CIware 2.0 Reporting and Communication

CIware 2.0 allows for improved interactions with CI staff regarding your background investigations.  Whether it be a group of backgrounds or an individual background investigation, users can communicate directly within CIware 2.0.  As always, you can use email if it is your preferred communication tool, but this option can help you avoid switching to an email application to ask a question or follow up on something.  We are confident you will love it as much as we do!  We’re always be happy to hear from clients via phone as well.

Also, account administrators have virtually unlimited reporting options in CIware 2.0!  Our staff at Commercial Investigations see that some of the most popular reports are the Invoice Report, Turnaround Time Reports and Department Allocation Reports.

Email us at [email protected] or call 800-284-0906 with a date and time that works for you to get a customized webinar overview of CIware 2.0.  We will schedule a conversion date before the sun sets. 

CIware 2.0 - Endless Options

Commercial Investigations has been busy converting clients over to our enhanced software, CIware 2.0.  Our new software platform works on all devices, from cell phones and tablets, to MACs and PCs.  CIware 2.0 users also enjoy the improved quick and easy online password reset feature, which eliminates the need to contact a CI staff member to have your password reset! 

There are many customizable email notification options within CIware 2.0, e.g. immediate notification when derogatory information is identified and verified.  This draws your attention to adverse information sooner rather than later, so you don’t waste valuable time during the recruiting process.  Users can also be notified by email when a report is complete, or when each portion of the report is complete.  The options are endless!

Call or email us to get a customized webinar overview of CIware 2.0 and a conversion scheduled.

Background Investigations - Simplifying the Order Process
 
 

The staff at Commercial Investigations continues to amaze clients while demonstrating the many customizable features of our CIware 2.0 software platform for conducting background investigations.  It offers many customizable features, that business owners and human resource departments are raving about!

Our president, Michelle Pyan, especially likes the Applicant Quick Invite feature.  With only first name, last name, and email address, an applicant is invited to complete the online electronic consent form.  Subjects are guided through a quick and easy application process by using a computer, tablet or cell phone.  To save recruiters the hassle, invitations are automatically resent each day for 5 days if an applicant hasn’t completed their background consent form. 

If you choose, applicants can also include their employment history, education details, and reference contact information.  Since applicants enter this information themselves, many are enjoying reduced data entry errors and a significant time savings.

After we receive the information from the subject, you can either opt to have the background investigation begin immediately, or you can have it save to a draft format and be choosier as to which investigations to move forward with.

We are converting all of our clients over to CIware 2.0, one at a time. Let us get you started today - you'll find it painless and efficient, we promise!  Watch for more exciting features explained soon.

Please meet one of Commercial Investigations LLC’s clients, Dulcie Karpensky!

Accepting her mission to send us her mugshot, Dulcie also helped us coin a new phrase.   As United Health Services Employment Department’s HR Representative, Dulcie has been instrumental in setting up her employees’ background investigations.  She will say to her staff, “Ok, let’s check on Jennifer’s CI!”  We love that, and we thank you Dulcie for helping make CI a household word… we appreciate you!
