High Profile Screening & Executive Screening Services

High Profile Screenings Can Protect Your Brand

Ensure Your High Profile Candidates Portray an Accurate Image


When looking for high profile candidates, you’ve likely done extensive background research on the person to ensure that they have the capability to become the face of your company. You’ve probably looked at their experience, education history, and even performed a criminal history check. You might think that you’ve covered all the bases, but how can you be sure? With the image of your company riding on the image of a candidate, businesses need a complete picture of a candidate’s background.

Why Perform High Profile Screenings?

High profile candidates such as CEOs, presidents and vice presidents often become a physical example of your company. In fact, they might even be what your customers and the general public think of when they hear your company’s name. These candidates are extremely important to the overall success and perception of your company.

While background checks are great ways to learn about a candidate’s qualification, work history, education, and more, they rarely yield the kind of information that reveals a candidate’s background actually matches what they portray in public. You need assurance.

Barada offers a screening methodology that gives you the confidence you need for your most important and highly visible employment opportunities. From deep social media searches to criminal background searches and beyond, high profile screenings from Barada take a deep dive into who your high profile candidates actually are.

What is Key Hire Research (KHR)?

The screening, Key Hire Research (KHR), uses time-tested processes to confirm, verify, validate and investigate the information these types of candidates claim about themselves.

KHR is the product of more than 35 years of experience in the Consumer Reporting and Investigative Consumer Reporting industries. It includes a comprehensive reference report, social media and traditional media audit.

KHR legally collects as much public information as possible on the candidate.

KHR utilizes the entire tool kit available to employers, including:

  • Professional and Developed Reference Reporting (conducted by professional interviewers)
  • Industry Leading Media Searches (to include social media sources)
  • Application and Resume Validation (anything the applicant claims… we check it)
  • Industry Leading Public Information Search (all relevant public data repositories and all relevant names and aliases)

High Profile Background Screenings And Background Checks

A job candidate screening is an important piece of the hiring process. Though both high-profile background screenings and background checks aim to provide more background information on candidates, there are some key differences between the two to make note of.

High-Profile Background Screenings

High-profile background screenings are most commonly used for job candidates entering executive roles within a company. These employees are often responsible for addressing the media, shareholders, clients, and more. Because of their presence within the organization, it’s important to take a deep dive into who the candidate actually is. These background screenings aim to help you hire the right executive candidate and minimize the risk associated with doing so.

Background Checks

Pre-employment background checks from Barada aim to verify education and work history, in addition to checking a candidate’s criminal history. You can even take our thorough background checks a step further and assess a candidate’s cognitive abilities or test for drugs and alcohol. Standard background checks and screenings, in comparison with high-profile background screenings, are commonly used for filling lower-level positions within an organization. They’ll ensure that the information you have about a job candidate is accurate and up-to-date.
