ATLANTA (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Advantage, the global leader in background check and drug screening solutions, today announced the New Future of Work, a multifaceted suite of solutions designed to help businesses quickly and easily pre-screen, re-screen and re-hire in the wake of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 global health crisis.
First Advantage’s holistic approach can help ensure employers get people back to work while also delivering on its long-standing promise of delivering the fastest turnaround times. In the past two weeks, First Advantage has launched multiple products in its New Future of Work solutions suite, including Virtual Drug Test, an oral-based test kit that can be performed via video conferencing; Ready2Work and Ready2Volunteer, tiered solutions that fast track background screening options for businesses and nonprofit organizations; and the Employment Retention Credit Tax Service, a process to identify and maximize tax incentive opportunities resulting from the CARES Act, the federal COVID-19 stimulus package.
The First Advantage New Future of Work was developed to enable businesses to quickly screen new hires and temporary workers as well as re-screen existing and furloughed employees who are returning to work. Specifically designed for those organizations seeking to onboard workers quickly following the business disruptions that resulted from the COVID-19 health crisis, the solutions are available now for industries and regions around the globe.
First Advantage also will be delivering two assessment products based on employer-provided questions in May 2020 to help clients better determine the work readiness levels of employees and candidates—both on and offsite. These investigative tools are customized by role and integrated into Profile Advantage, the company’s mobile-enabled screening platform. They are designed to deliver strategic questions that empower the employer to ensure a safe and effective workspace for all employees. For example, one solution focuses on factors related to remote work readiness, such as optimal internet speeds, designated office space and secure wireless internet, while the other focuses on workplace readiness.
