Background Investigations

Are you making informed decisions?

Background screening investigations are critical to any company’s success because working with qualified, honest and hard-working employees and other businesses is an integral part of thriving in the business community. What you don’t know can hurt you, and the simple act of one bad decision can result in an unprecedented loss for your company.

From vendor and third-party screening to employment screening, CRI Group recommends background screening investigations as key proactive measures to help keep your business safe. An effective background screening investigation will help screen for bad apples who can cause havoc down the road.



Because we maintain a diverse talent base comprised of multilingual and multi-cultural professionals, CRI is able to traverse obstacles that often impede international background screening investigations. That’s why we are frequently contracted by our competitors to conduct background screening investigations in geographic regions not serviced or accessible by larger investigative firms. In fact, background screening firms worldwide use CRI Group to conduct background screening investigations in remote areas across the globe, where we are able to produce quality results that meet the constraints of tight timeframes and restricted budgets.
