The SHRM17 Annual Conference & Exposition was a huge success, and CRI Group was proud to be on hand at the event in New Orleans to meet with human resources managers and specialists to talk about their challenges, best practices and how EmploySmart can help make their jobs easier and more effective. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) holds the annual event to gather the top HR professionals from around the world. CRI Group knows that HR is in a critical role when it comes to helping organisations prevent fraud.

CRI Group has participated in the SHRM17 Annual Conference & Exposition in New Orleans (June 18-21). SHRM and their world-renowned annual conference is a must-attend event for HR pros. Human resources managers and specialists are in a unique position when it comes to helping their organizations prevent fraud. An HR team that conducts thorough background screening in the employment process, for example, can help keep potential fraudsters out before they have a chance to damage a company from within.

CRI Group’s agents discussed how thorough background screening for new and existing staff can help detect red flags, potentially saving companies millions in future losses from fraud and corruption. Using EmploySmart, CRI Group analyses a job candidate’s claims and credentials, and can complement HR efforts with a “boots on the ground” approach to extensive background checking. With EmploySmart, CRI Group examines all of the details provided by a potential employee including their identity, criminal background, education credentials, job history, employment references, and financial and credit checks (as permitted by law); among many other details.

If you missed getting a chance to meet with CRI Group’s experts at the conference, or if you are an HR professional who would like to know more about how EmploySmart can help you, please contact us today! We are always eager to chat about how we can help complement your efforts and make you a hero in fraud prevention at your organisation. With EmploySmart, you can make sure your prospective (and current) employees are who they say they are, and that you only hire the best.
