Background Checks

Background checks are a cost-effective screening tool to make certain your business is hiring the best candidate for the job. Conducting a background check adds value to a business in many ways. Primarily, the quality of new employees will improve if a background check is performed. In addition, background checks reduce negligent hiring risks.

It is important to make certain the correct forms required by the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) are used in the background check process. Employers failing to comply with any of FCRA's requirements may be subject to lawsuits, depending on the nature of the violation.

CBS conducts background checks including, but not limited to:

  • Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) report
  • Criminal Background - Multi State Search
  • Motor Vehicle Report (MVR)
  • Professional reference
  • Employment verification
  • Education verification
  • Credit Report

What our clients say...

East Texas Electric Cooperative

Tambra Offield
Officer Manager
East Texas Electric Cooperative

“I first met Kristina Dietrick and learned of HR Partners at last year’s NRECA Interact conference.  Her presentation on developing an employee handbook was very informative.  Kristina sent me all the materials and introduced me to the staff who worked closely with myself and our General Manager to develop our new employee handbook specifically to fit our needs. 

We were so impressed that when our Board President asked about doing an evaluation of our General Manager’s performance, that we immediately thought of HR Partners.”

We can’t thank HR Partners enough for all their help with our GM’s review process.  Their knowledge and experience made the process so easy. 

I have recommended CBS to all 10 of our distribution cooperative members for all their human resources needs.
