In this section, the leaders of companies that have helped HR become this key player talk about their continual search for solutions to the issues raised in a fast-changing working world.

for a Safer Workplace
The tragic events of September 11, 2001, sounded a wake-up call for American businesses and caused a great shift in HR management. Background checks are now seen more as a risk management tool than as just an HR tool. ChoicePoint is helping employers address this issue with the introduction of the ChoicePoint National Criminal File. ChoicePoint National Criminal File will give employers access to more comprehensive criminal records, helping employers to verify applicant information and make smarter hiring decisions.
