The Need for Speed (and Accuracy)

In today’s race for talent, we know that when a retail candidate has multiple offers, they often choose the organization that extends an offer first. At First Advantage, we use innovative technology and automation to shorten turnaround times and deliver some of the fastest results in the industry helping you to beat out the competition. But don’t worry; accuracy will never take a backseat to speed.  You’ll receive fast, accurate results. 

Loss Prevention

Retailers face unique risks that have a common denominator – employees. While not responsible for the majority of theft and data breach incidents, employee theft is a leading cause of shrinkage in the U.S., responsible for 30 percent of incidents just behind shoplifting at 36.5 percent. The average cost of employee theft in 2017 was $1,922.80.

An efficient, comprehensive employment screening process can, above all else, help to mitigate potential workplace risks related to financial exposure, physical safety, organizational image, or reputation. That’s why it is so important to work with a trusted background screening provider like First Advantage.
