Take Advantage of Discounted Background Screening Services

Adopting a solid screening and selection process is your first line of defense in creating a safe environment. A thorough, consistent screening process may also discourage would-be offenders from targeting your organization. Failure to discover a known offender can affect those in your care and your reputation, financial stability, and trust within the community. In determining the types of checks to utilize, you should follow all state, federal, and licensing regulations and consider an individual’s level of access. Praesidium offers several standard and customizable criminal background check packages plus other a la carte background check services. Praesidium offers a selection of background screening packages plus a la carte services to empower your organization to conduct right-sized research. Praesidium’s team can help contextualize the screening process as part of an overall culture of safety and discuss how screening works in hand with other abuse prevention efforts. Praesidium’s team can also help you understand who to screen, how often, and the importance of re-screening.
