Success for a Startup

A start-up company selling medical equipment needed background screening for a large amount of new employees. A contact advised them to consult FirstPoint for its ability to turnaround results quickly.

FirstPoint was able to set up the client's account quickly and get the background screening reports completed in the timeframe necessary to meet the client's deadline. While attempting to verify the education of an applicant for a director level position with a 100k+ salary, the FirstPoint team discovered that the candidate had provided education materials that had been purchased from an offshore "diploma mill." FirstPoint's background screening process saved the company from making a potentially expensive hiring mistake.

What the client has to say:

"The bogus degree situation FirstPoint uncovered really opened our eyes to the importance of conducting comprehensive background screenings."

Secrets to Success:

  • FirstPoint staff personally conducted in-house research to obtain verification of applicant's education and employment information.
  • Referral from other satisfied client(s)
