Consider your Company’s Reputation

A mistake in hiring could cost you more than just the time you spent recruiting, interviewing, and training an individual. There are financial implications, liability issues, and potential damage to the reputation of your business. Our thorough services can help you save more than just money.

Because hiring is so crucial, Paychex offers multiple subscription packages for its employee screening service. A subscription offers two key benefits: it allows your business to plan more easily and budget; and it features a built-in discount over a-la-carte pricing.
