ZeroChaos Enhances Workforce Solutions with Acquisition of Employment Screening Firm, Checkpast

ORLANDO, January 7, 2010 -- ZeroChaos, a global workforce solutions company headquartered in Orlando, today announced its acquisition last week of Checkpast, an established leader in the employment screening industry. The acquisition marked the third in 2009 for ZeroChaos as the company increased its market share and augmented its service offerings to help customers meet dynamic workforce management needs.

Founded in 1992, Checkpast is nationally known for its innovative background research approach and its commitment to accuracy, quality, and efficiency of screening solutions. In 2009, the firm provided background, drug, and other screening solutions for more than 1000 companies throughout the U.S.

"Today employment screening is critical. It is smart business. The upfront investment to understand a candidate far outweighs the risk and cost of a bad hire," said ZeroChaos CEO Harold Mills.

For four years, Checkpast and ZeroChaos partnered to conduct government mandated e-Verify checks, background and drug screenings for many of ZeroChaos’ corporate customers.

"All three of our recent acquisitions strengthen ZeroChaos’ ability to offer comprehensive workforce solutions to customers throughout the U.S. and Europe. These investments enhance our innovative technologies, perpetuate our thought leadership and will fuel our growth in 2010. Ultimately all of these achievements enable ZeroChaos to solve even more of our customer’s workforce needs," concluded Mills.
