Comprehensive services include background screening, vendor/contractor screening, executive screening, drug testing, fingerprinting, paperless onboarding, and electronic Form I-9/E-Verify solutions. At Cisive, we are experts in the specific risks and regulations that apply to the financial services and other highly regulated industries. For over 40 years, we have provided tailored solutions to meet the unique requirements of our enterprise clients. We launched our onboarding suite of technologies in 2007 to cater to enterprise clients’ talent acquisition needs, and have been enhancing the platform ever since. Founded in 1977 as CARCO Group Inc., we launched our new brand Cisive in 2017 to keep pace with our incredible growth and our clients’ increasingly complex challenges for accurate information and insights to make confident decisions. Today, Cisive provides comprehensive global background investigations on potential and current employees, vendors, clients, and business partners. We also provide drug testing and fingerprinting services through alliance partners. Governed by a mission to mitigate risk for employers, Cisive empowers clients with actionable intelligence and clarity throughout the hiring process. The uniqueness of Cisive’s pre- employment screening services stems from their unwavering focus on truthful reporting, legal compliance, and integrity of source material. The company draws on its rich experience to offer the right solutions to enterprise organizations in highly regulated industries such as financial services. Cisive employs technology to automate processes where achievable by technology, but also employs highly trained personnel for review of background investigation information at critical points. This approach provides our clients unparalleled insight and the most accurate information and ensures that they overcome employment background check challenges and bring the most qualified candidates on board. Our accuracy rates are extremely high, and our dispute rates are very low. Moreover, while providing this best-in-class quality, our turnaround times compare favorably to our competitors. All these operational and background screening capabilities work in cohesion to improve the candidate experience. We don’t cut corners; as a result, clients don’t have to make a choice between technology and quality of the background screening with Cisive.
