Life Sciences Industry
Leaked research, sabotaged laboratories, competitor espionage – these are all real threats faced by organizations operating within the life sciences industry. With so much of your resources invested in obtaining the intellectual capital crucial to your success, ensuring your employees are trustworthy is of vital importance. What’s more, you need to be certain you are not hiring an activist whose sympathies lie more with the animals in your laboratories than the humans you are trying to save, or a candidate with a substance abuse problem – a major consideration given they may have access to various drug samples.
In addition to these concerns, Kroll Background America, Inc. (KBA) is well-aware of issues affecting your industry such as compliance with ever-evolving background screening requirements, and increases in both decentralized workforces and product life-cycle outsourcing that make your organization more vulnerable to counterfeiting and intellectual property theft.
