Recruiting skilled, trustworthy and committed staff is a tricky & often cumbersome process, especially in today’s tight US labour market (3.7% unemployment). Get it wrong, and capable candidates go to rivals. Equally hiring poor employees can damage an organisation’s results, brand & culture. No more so than in the regulated areas of healthcare, transport, petro-chemicals, defence, logistics, education and financial services.
Here ClearStar’s fully automated, mobile-centric and thorough background & medical (MIS) screening services fit the bill. So much so that this morning, the firm posted 16.9% LFL revenue growth in H1’19 to $11.6m vs $9.9m H1’18. Split 21.7% Q2 ($6.5m) vs 11.4% Q1 ($5.1m), with Aug ’19 YTD being 18% ahead of LY.
The stand-out performers were once again Direct (+49% to $4.2m) and MIS (+25% to $5.0m), which together climbed 36% in H1, and contributed 72% (or $8.3m, excluding divisional overlap) of the group.
