2016: A Year in Review

Another successful year is coming to an end, and with 2017 right around the corner, we wanted to recap Pre-Check and Pre-Select for you! Below is a list of 2016's major changes, initiatives, and more!

4.New Marketing Efforts: Blogs, AdWords, Drip Campaigns

We’ve really revamped a few of our marketing efforts for both Pre-Check and Pre-Select. Prior our new initiatives, you might have seen us share someone else’s articles and stories to our social media pages. But that wasn’t quite working for us anymore. Now we have increased the output of our own blog content! Kind of like this one you’re reading right now.

Additionally, we started to utilize Google AdWords to increase our search engine ranking results, and to capture new leads from our specified keywords. Email marketing Drip Campaigns have also been introduced to stay top of mind with our current clients and to reach prospective clients with fresh, compelling content.

Overall, Pre-Check and Pre-Select have undergone some serious digital changes, and we’re staying ahead of the age of technology!

5.A Focus on Developing Strategic Business Unit: Smart Hire

We were busy developing one of our key Strategic Business Units this year: Smart Hire! Smart Hire is our spinoff of our Applicant Tracking System. There are two parts: ‘Red,’ which allows employers to lease Pre-Select for a 60-day period, and ‘Blue,” where we actually find quality hires for employers, taking over the recruitment process entirely. Many business owners find it difficult to have the time and resources necessary to find the right hire while still maintaining day to day operations. That’s where Smart Hire comes in – we remove the administrative hassles of finding positions for IT, manufacturing, accounting, and so much more for 1/6th of the traditional recruitment services charge!

See what our clients have to say about their experience with Smart Hire!

6.Presence at Business Networking Meetings and Trade Show Exhibitions

Yes, digital marketing has never been more relevant in this day and age. But we still value the concept of face-to-face marketing! So, Pre-Check and Pre-Select attended some Trade Show Exhibitions, namely the 2016 Ohio HR Conference at Kalahari Resort and the THRAC Conference. We find that maintaining a physical presence with our prospects is equally as worth of our efforts! Plus, we were able to hand out decadent milk and dark chocolates to passers-by at our booths… You can’t eat chocolate virtually!

There is hardly a person that the current opioid crisis does not affect. Whether you personally know someone who suffers from opioid addiction, or you know a friend of a friend This is a very real and growing problem that continues to touch the lives of too many people. In this blog, were going to address some of the main factors of the opioid crisis, with the help from our friends at Quest Diagnostics: How Does it Start? Yes, opioid addiction can begin by just hanging out with the wrong crowd, but more often than not, it begins at a doctors office. Many prescriptions for painkillers are careless or overprescribed, which can frequently leads to the misuse of the prescription. Quest shares how misuse can work: Misuse occurs when a prescribed drug is taken in a way that is not consistent with a physicians orders. For many, deviating from a doctors instructions may lead to dependence on painkillers and, in the worst case scenario, seeking out to find street drugs like heroin

Carnivals and fairs have recently been a hot topic up for public debate after several incidents this year involving assault, sexual harassment, and drug abuse happened all over the nation. With no government oversight, state laws, or local regulations, its important to understand how each employee is vetted and hired so we can all feel safe and have peace of mind at our next carnival. What it essentially comes down to, is that the hiring and vetting processes are solely determined by each company for each carnival, festival, and fair. This includes determining whether or not a company wants to perform a background check at all on a candidate, and even when deciding which past criminal offenses they will or will not accept when looking at an applicants record. Sometimes, this means applicants with criminal history can slip through the cracks For example, employee Jeffrey Thomas Pendzimas of the Minnesota State Fair, was charged with sexual assault on a woman in front of her children

This blog has been written by Roy Maurer of SHRM. Pre-Check is re-posting it with permission. Roy Maurer | roy.maurer@shrm.org Employers that conduct background screens need to keep up as states expand the types ofcriminal records eligible for sealing or expungement. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, D.C., recently proposed to wipe clean the arrest records of people who were not later convicted. Her plan joins a spate of efforts dubbed second chance or clean slate bills that would limit employers access to criminal records of arrests without convictions, minor misdemeanors and even low-level felonies, to improve ex-offenders job prospects. Most states allow for criminal records to be sealed or expunged, although laws vary by state. Some states do not permit expungement, or they allow expungement under very limited circumstances. Dealing with sealed or expunged records can be tricky for employers conducting background screens because of differences in state laws and the
