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!

Mugshot Monday - Rachael Raffile

This week we are happy to introduce you to Rachael Raffile.  Rachael has been with CI for about one year now.  She says she loves working here because the job is rewarding, fun and she feels appreciated.

When she's not here inspiring us with her upbeat personally and stellar performance, she can be found spending time with her two dogs.  She says her dog Marley is so funny.  He makes her hold his paw and won’t stop until her arm gets tired.  Rachael’s favorite time of year is fall because she loves the crisp air and all of the apple and pumpkin flavored goodies.  Her biggest fear in life is her boyfriend’s erratic driving.  So it’s a good thing that Marley makes her hold his hand in the car!

Kayla Bancroft - Mugshot Monday

Kayla has been with Commercial Investigations for about seven months.  In her time here so far, she has enjoyed being able to apply her degree, especially while working on criminal inquiries.  Kayla is an outdoor enthusiast that enjoys playing basketball and kayaking at her family’s lake house. 

Kayla is looking forward to a lot of personal and professional growth in 2018, and says the best way to start her day is eating some kale and getting in a good workout.  She is very fond of the team environment CI provides.  We’re glad to have you on our team, Kayla!

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 - 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.

Yvonne Weis - Mugshot Monday Installment #28

 

We’d like to introduce you to a new member of our team, Yvonne Weis!  Yvonne celebrates her Native American Mohegan Tribe heritage by attending Pow Wows in Connecticut, and has also lived in Mississippi and New York.  Yvonne always has a funny story to share, especially about her two boys.   She is also a great cook, (cheesy chicken stuffing bake being one of her all-time favorites) and we are all in agreement that keeping up to the rigors of this job requires delicious sustenance on a regular basis.  You can find Yvonne and her family on dirt bikes and baseball diamonds.  She is always out and about stirring up fun.  Welcome aboard, Yvonne!

While trying to complete a background investigation, one of our investigators asked a reference, "Do you know of any major accomplishments that she has achieved?"  The reference responded, "Hmmm…  well she's never had the po po called on her, so I guess that's pretty great!"
