Hiring a CEO, COO, CFO or other C-suite executive?
Choosing a new leader to direct your organization’s future?
Recruiting a professional caretaker for your estate or finances?
When you are hiring a senior executive to manage the future of your business or financial assets, a typical background check is not enough. Unfortunately, many background check providers have moved from hands-on investigation towards less costly automation and a near-total reliance on internet resources. Many larger screening companies “offshore” their operational activities, creating additional concerns about data security, as well as language and culture barriers, especially when working at such a high level. This can result in insufficient, incomplete or inaccurate information, a shortfall that can cripple your search for the perfect senior executive.
Senior Executives are responsible for every aspect of your business. C-suite positions in particular influence and control your most valuable assets, finances, intellectual property, proprietary information and future strategic plans. Hiring a candidate without fully understanding their past professional behavior and performance, personality and current life circumstances can wreak havoc on your organization, possibly within days of hire. No organization can afford to get it wrong. We have always expressed our belief that a background check should confirm a hiring decision, not make one.
We at Asset Control believe you must know as much as possible before entrusting someone with your future. We can help you avoid making a bad hire at the senior executive level. That’s why we have developed a new service called Executive Inquiry.
What is Executive Inquiry and how is it different? Here are five critical points of emphasis:
First, Executive Inquiry targets senior and executive management candidates, including C-suite positions and all high level leaders, regardless of the type of industry or organization. We will provide you with all the relevant information necessary to make an informed hiring decision.
Second, our proven research techniques make an Executive Inquiry search more comprehensive than those used by others. We combine cutting-edge technology with more than 25 years of experience in hands-on investigation and research. This experience is why we have the knowledge and capability to go far beyond the scope and depth of a typical background check, providing a deeper look into a candidate’s public and private persona and creating an ultimate level of due diligence and good business sense. All Executive Inquiry searches are thoroughly reviewed by experienced legal counsel to ensure that our work meets or exceeds the highest legal, business and ethical standards.
Third, Executive Inquiry investigations are customized to fit each job description and your organization’s specific needs. Unlike others in our industry, Executive Inquiry does not provide a “one size fits all” background check.
Fourth, Executive Inquiry does not necessarily interfere with other HR platforms your company may be using. Our specialized services frequently complement such platforms by filling the critical gaps in their coverage. And, of course, Executive Inquiry is a useful enhancement to the tried and true background screening services that Asset Control already offers.
Fifth, the cost for Executive Inquiry negligible compared to the potentially catastrophic cost you may suffer should you make the wrong hire based on substandard information.
Executive Inquiry's areas of focus may include, but are not limited to
