POSTED BY: Jeff Duncan, July 28, 2016
Philippine PI reports strong growth with rise in demand for employment background checks.
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA (July 28, 2016) – Philippine PI, the professional investigation firm specializing in the Philippines and Southeast Asia, reported today strong revenue growth for second-quarter of fiscal 2016. Revenue growth for the period was 14 percent after a steady increase in the number of employment background check and due diligence cases for new hires and new investments in the region. Due to the high risk for fraud, false resumes and investment scams, more clients are using Philippine PI™ to mitigate the risk.
Internet criminals are cashing in on unsuspecting victims who hire and invest in the Philippines without doing their homework. The risk in the region is quite high, so investigators urge caution. Proper verification before hiring or investing in the country is the key to success. Professional investigators on the ground in the Philippines can provide clients with clear evidence for better and safer hiring.
"The Philippines continues to be an attractive investment for many companies and individuals around the world. To be successful, proper background check investigations and professional due diligence is essential," said Charles Alden, President and CEO of Philippine PI. "Checking criminal records or searching databases from overseas is not an investigation. Staying safe and making smart decisions means using Philippine PI to deliver clear evidence and identify the risk factors. With highly trained investigators on the ground and contacts throughout the Philippines government and law enforcement, we continue to be the most trusted solution."
