When you’re hiring someone you have to do your due diligence to make sure the person is on the up and up. Back in the old days (when I was hiring new employees last century, waaay back in 1999), this was primarily a paper based process that took a long time to get any results (and costly). Luckily these days it’s a lot easier and a lot more affordable.
I recently started using GoodHire for background checks and it does a good job for a good price. It’s web-based, electronic submittals, and fast results. Plus if you need to do a more extensive background check, they make ala cart options easy to add. And one feature that I thought was a good idea was their ability to do on-going checks if you needed so if anything popped on their radar after a person was hired, they would let you know.
So the Cool Tech of the Week is GoodHire. If you are hiring one or many, check them out.
