– Alliance to Provide Human Resources Professionals with Enhanced Tax Credit, OFCCP Compliance, Pre-employment Screening and Acquisition Solutions –
(RESTON, Va. and BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. – March 1, 2012) – MAXIMUS Tax Credit and Employer Services, a division of MAXIMUS, and Global HR Research (GHRR), a leading provider of talent screening, management and assessment solutions, announced today that they have entered into a strategic alliance. Through this alliance, MAXIMUS clients will have the opportunity to use GHRR’s pre-employment screening services and diagnostic selection tools, while GHRR clients will gain access to the MAXIMUS suite of tax credit and employer services, including tax credit pre-screening, E-Verify and Form I-9 solutions.
MAXIMUS clients will be able to access GHRR’s industry-leading pre-employment solutions through the GlobalHiRe and JobMatcher platforms. These platforms include fully customized and scalable online services – including background screening, applicant tracking, diagnostic selection assessments and occupational health solutions – designed to help companies of all sizes more effectively select and assess candidates while still mitigating risk and maintaining compliance.

Hiring managers will be able to use electronic signatures and real-time tracking and reporting tools, mitigating risk by virtually eliminating human error while saving time and increasing compliance for their organizations.
