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!

Employers: Have you heard about the Ohio Houses House Bill 187? Its proposal is to protect the privacy of employment applicants; however, it could also make the hiring just a little bit trickier you. House Bill 187: According to 2017 BARNES THORNBURG LLP, House Bill 187 provides that no employer may request an applicants Social Security Number, date of birth, or drivers license number before making an offer of employment. The Problem: You might already see why this new bill could be frustrating for employers. These are the key pieces of information employers and Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs) use to check criminal records, driving history, credit history, previous employment, and more. The bill does state that an employer may obtain information for these background screening reasons, but this is unrealistic because it forbids employers from providing this information to third parties, like us. If House Bill 187 becomes law, employers will undoubtedly have to begin

Why Run an International Background Check? Many times, employers and hiring managers find themselves with job candidates who have lived abroad, or perhaps they may even have satellite locations in other countries. In these cases, international background checks are necessary for pre-employment screening. And as international job candidates become more and more common, international background checks become more important. Especially as criminals continue to cross international borders. An international background check will allow an employer to make a more informed hiring decision. Using a CRA Choosing a credible Credit Reporting Agency (CRA) is always an important factor in your typical background screening process, but it can be even more crucial when running an international background check. This is because international background screening is much more complex; CRAs must be aware of each countrys own laws and process governing what information can be legally obtained, how it can
