When selecting the best candidates to work for your organization, never judge a book by its cover. In a highly competitive job market, individuals are more likely to embellish or hide certain aspects of their histories. As a result, human resource professionals and hiring managers across the country rely on accurate and in-depth background screening reports for applicants and potential employees.

Donna McQueen is the founder of For the Record, Inc., a pre-employment and background screening company. Since its establishment in 1997, For The Record Inc. has provided a variety of pre-employment and background screening services, both nationally as well as internationally, to assist with the critical process of employment evaluation and selection.

“We’re the right size for the right size company,” says McQueen. “When someone becomes my client, I will take care of them. I will help you through your projects and I will handle whatever challenges arise.”

For the Record uses a variety of public and proprietary sources to deliver a detailed and comprehensive report. Their dedicated support staff produces an easy-to-read report covering everything from criminal searches (both county and statewide), as well as national sex offender searches and address history searches. For the Record typically works with organizations in the fields of healthcare, staffing, construction who employ between 50-75 people. Such organizations will typically run background screenings for every single applicant.

“This has always been rather fascinating to me,” says McQueen. “Even though I go about it the same way, it’s never the same name. I have to stay on my toes, be accurate, concentrate and know what I’m doing. My clients appreciate the personal approach I take with each of them and I still have clients from when I first started 18 years ago. That’s very humbling.”
