If you want to work for the senior homecare organization Visiting Angels in Ann Arbor, Mich., be prepared for a thorough background check. "I wouldn't even consider hiring an employee without one," says owner and director Angil Tarach-Ritchey.
"Employees not only need to be trusted by the employer, they are a reflection of our business," she says. "The check brings peace of mind and less risk for future problems, and I use it as an educational and marketing tool so the elderly, their families and our referral sources know that we value their safety."
