Written By ESR News Blog Editor Thomas Ahearn

PreemploymentDirectory.com, a comprehensive listing of professional background screening companies, has added a new ‘Employment Screening Advice for Employers’ section to its industry information portal to help educate employers in the field of background screening, according to a press release about the new section, which is located at https://preemploymentdirectory.com/employment-screening-advice-for-employers/.

“Our goal is to provide top thought leadership and expert content to employers who have an increasing need, due to talent shortages, to stay on top of what is happening in talent management and assessment. Hiring the best talent is a never-ending challenge for employers and those that excel in this area will be winners in the marketplace,” W. Barry Nixon, the founder of PreemploymentDirectory.com, stated in the press release.

What is employment screening? According to the new ‘Employment Screening Advice for Employers’ section: “Employers use a series of steps to guide them towards hiring the best workers. Matching the right skills to an open position is key, and effective selection can result in hiring the kind of employees that will boost company morale, add to corporate culture, keep turnover low, and contribute to the growth of the organization.”

The new ‘Employment Screening Advice for Employers’ section will include expert content from Nixon, a widely recognized expert on background screening, publisher of the ‘Background Buzz’ e-newsletter, co-author of ‘Background Screening Investigations: Managing Hiring Risk from an HR and Security Perspective,’ and a past recipient of the coveted ‘Most Influential People in Security’ award by Security Magazine.

In addition, the new section will include guest posts from the top experts in background screening such as Attorney Lester Rosen, the founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of leading global background check provider Employment Screening Resources® (ESR) and the author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual.’ Rosen has written an article titled ‘Why Employers Should Hire Slowly and Fire Quickly’ that is available in the new section.

Rosen was chairperson of the steering committee that founded the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA), a non-profit trade group representing companies offering employment screening services, and served as the first co-chair. In 2019, he was awarded the PBSA Lifetime Achievement Award. The article by Rosen is located at https://preemploymentdirectory.com/why-employers-should-hire-slowly-and-fire-quickly.
