I'm pleased to introduce a new Great Leadership sponsor, Crimcheck.com.
Crimcheck.com is a nationwide leader in background checks & employment screening. They provide fast, affordable, and comprehensive background checks to both small businesses and large corporations.
You can even do a background check on yourself, which could be very handy if you're applying for any high level cabinet positions.
Crimcheck also has a pretty cool blog, Background Check News, with posts written by YourHRGuy's Lance Haun.
Chrimcheck has been a terrific supporter of HR and talent management bloggers, so please consider using them as your background check provider.
The February 18th HR CarnivalJon Ingham has assembled a very creative HR Carnival over at his Strategic HCM blog. This edition of the Carnival seems to be focused on the recession, and includes my own post, How to Lead a Global Virtual Team.
