Employee Background Screening

Employee Background Screening Mitigates the Inherent Risks of Human Capital

Human capital - in the form of employees, contractors, and volunteers - simultaneously represents an organization’s greatest asset and its greatest potential liability.  Lowers & Associates (L&A) utilizes comprehensive background screening as a primary component in developing an enterprise-wide risk mitigation strategy.

Through our Proforma Screening solution, L&A provides best practice employment screening programs that deliver tangible benefits to Human Resources and Risk managers; balancing the competing influences of cost and risk tolerance, while delivering the information needed to make informed personnel decisions.

Industry Pioneers

The staff at L&A has utilized background screening as a key element in organizational risk mitigation for more than 25 years, launching our first fully-dedicated employment screening branch in 1988.  Many things have changed over the years, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the commitment to providing clients with the best possible information that enables appropriate personnel decisions.

L&A relies on its Proforma Screening solution to safeguard the brand, assets, and personnel of some of the most recognizable names in the United States and abroad.  The Proforma Solution has consistently made a positive impact on traditionally negative business factors, such as turnover, occupational fraud, and catastrophic events.

Improve the Reference Process

“References” are a staple in employment background screening programs. Whether performed internally by HR departments, or fulfilled by third party screening companies, they have been the standard method for confirming previous employment, professional capabilities, and personal character.  The issue is this. As a result of litigation trends, traditional reference checks have become a drain on budgets and resources while returning ever-diminishing organizational value.  Dates of employment and positions held don’t provide much to go on!
