Pre-employment background screening has become an imperative component of the business process that cannot be turned a blind eye. Until a few years ago, organizations were relying mostly on the information provided by the other party, be it job applicants, vendors, customers or the like. With cases of fraud on education certificates, employment certificates and salary slips coming to the fore, it has become essential for organizations to seek and obtained unbiased information from an external professional organization. Viral Vora, Founder, cFIRST Background Checks, too faced the similar problem when he was working on the other side of the table and hiring candidates for both U.S. and India. In this process of hiring, he experienced the pain of getting background verifications done in timely and easy manner. Occasionally, he even burnt his fingers, unknowingly hiring dubious people, putting business and reputation in jeopardy. Understanding both the pain and the impact that hiring decisions can have on business, he started a company to address similar problems for others. Thus, cFIRST Background Checks came into existence in the year 2010 to provide soup-to-nuts background verification services for India, U.S. as well UK, Canada, Europe, Australia and Middle-Eastto its clients.
