Are There Criminals on Your Sales Team?


The answer might just be "Yes" despite the standard background screening that your company uses.

Lee B. Salz of SalesDodo.com has published a whitepaper intriguingly titled "Are There Criminals on Your Sales Team?" I've read it and was surprised by the ways in which people with questionable backgrounds can avoid detection by standard background screenings.

"Most companies have a background screening scope that they use for all employees," says Salz. "However," he explains, "salespeople require different screening due to their interaction with the public, access to the company's proprietary information, access to client's confidential information, and handling of money."

This eye-opening whitepaper dispels some common misperceptions of criminal background checks and provides rarely seen insight into the benefits and pitfalls of each. You may think you know criminal background screening, but wait until you read this! To get your copy of this valuable whitepaper, send an email to [email protected]

This is an excellent white paper on background checks. From my experience most companies aren't doing thorough enough background checks. This article shows companies how they can improve the effectiveness of their background screening programs.

I absolutely agree Chris - either they're not doing enough background checks - or if they are, it's a very basic check. I'm sure a customized service such as yours would be a big help to companies looking to hire the very best.
