Human Resources Consultants

Imperative helps clients make well-informed decisions about the people they involve in their business.
Often, that involves giving employers thorough and easy-to-understand background checks on prospective employees.
But sometimes it means helping families make well-informed decisions when hiring nannies or other caregivers.
Outside of employment, we help services firms with their client acceptance and know-your-customer requirements.
And we help investors research the principals in firms in which they are considering making private equity placements.
Basically, if people are involved, there’s risk involved.
We help companies identify and mitigate that risk.
Imperative is a private investigations firm licensed by the Texas Department of Public Safety (A09357). We are also accredited by the Professional Background Screeners Association.
