This is how we get there!


We have long experience of background checks and risk assessments of recruitment to sensitive positions and our competence provides the possibility to prevent candidates from cheating. Each assignment contributes with new lessons and experiences, which means that our development never stops.


We constantly follow the research on what characterizes risky behavior among candidates. One example is that psychopaths in working life are more common than we think and because the subject is fairly new, new research often comes. Another example is the research on persons with legalist tendencies.


We are involved in the debate about digital opportunities to create new and fabricated background stories.

Experience & knowledge

We know that experience and knowledge are the key to quality in your background checks of candidates for sensitive positions.

Our Services

We start all our background checks with creating a risk profile for the position that you are about to recruit for. This means that we, together with you, define what harm a wrong recruitment could do to your company. The risk profile gives us the information to create the level of background check that would suit you.

We think the word background checks may be one of the most misunderstood words in the Swedish HR industry. The most common misconception is that background checks are the same as a control against a police register or a credit check. It is so far from the truth that one can come.

The customers we have worked with over the last few years often think that they know what kind of background control they want to do, but after we have discussed, the assignment often has become something else.
