An ill-informed hiring decision can cost a company dearly. A dishonest employee can ruin a company’s reputation and bottom line. An employee with a checkered past can expose a company to civil liability and damages. An employee who does not fit within an organization or position can result in wasted training and administrative costs.

Before entering into a new business relationship, would you deem the following information relevant:

  • A prospective customer or client with current or past financial troubles?
  • A potential supplier with a history of lawsuits for breach of contract?
  • An acquisition target whose operations or principals exist only on paper?
  • A partner to a strategic alliance with ties to organized crime or a criminal history?
