Sports and Entertainment Industry

We’re privy to the many considerations and variables that go along with hiring in the entertainment industry. While some sectors like reality TV require more stringent background screening than others, the industry has seen an increase in employment screening. 

Part of our service is to advise our clients on background solutions and the best route forward for their situation. We’ve seen the positive effects of employment screening on workplace issues such as turnover, violence, drug or alcohol use, and the subsequent legal troubles that arise from this.
