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!

1.Pre-Check's New Logos & Website

Visually, Pre-Check made some big strides with our new logo!

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!

As a young US Army Lieutenant, I was taught the KISS (keep it simple stupid) method of planning. As General George Patton has been quoted, A good plan today is better than a great plan tomorrow. KISS came to mind at last Marchs National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) convention in Washington DC, where all of the speakers seemed to have the title Esq. after their names (lol). There was much discussion about Serial Plaintiffs who apply for a multitude of positions, not with the intent of getting a job, but with the sole purpose of finding flaws in the employers Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) compliance to extract a monetary payment from the employer ( These professional plaintiffs have managed to extort millions of dollars from potential employers because it is cheaper and minimizes the risk of negative publicity

The rise of drug use is unfortunately not uncommon in America. The sad truth is that almost every single person has been affected by drug use either personally or indirectly. Still, drug use continues to rise with each passing year. Drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental deaths in the United States with 52,404 lethal drug overdoses in 2015 alone. Opioid addiction seems to be driving this epidemic with over 20,000 deaths related to prescription pain killers. More alarmingly, there is an even larger increase of marijuana and heroin use worldwide. A study conducted in 2014, found that between 2010-2012 alone, deaths from heroin overdose nearly tripled, accounting for nearly 56% of the population using heroin. Most drug overdoses linkedto prescription pain killers such as Vicodin and Oxycontin over the past 20 years are overprescribed, causing addiction, which typically leads toheroinuse as highs lessen over extended use and time. Over 94% of people in the United States have
