Message from Our President, Sandra James

Spring forward with the latest in criminal background checks, the changes for those volunteering at schools, and how the decline in "job-hopping" can negatively affect the economy.  In this issue we want to highlight the importance of the Equal Employee Opportunity Law, school safety, and the importance of an accurate and precise screening program. Knowledge is power; let us help you in your quest for the perfect candidate.
