Deputy Chief of Mission David Renz delivered remarks during a special CSR report launch event where he spoke about U.S. businesses bringing their most defining value – Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) - to the places where they operate. He said the success of U.S. companies comes from intrinsic values that infuse everything they do, from how they empower their employees to what they give back to their communities – whether local, national, or global. And that’s as true of American companies in #Ethiopia as it is of companies in America. Find the full text of his remarks here: https://bit.ly/2xLD0Mx

UPDATE: Fantastically corrupt Nigerian institutions. This is supposed to be our 63 million US dollars arson insurance claim. Pres. Buhari, Magu of EFCC and other agencies are using the language of looting to hold on to our claim. Knowing fully well using the British language ‘looting’ cannot change the ownership. The loot must return to the beneficiaries, while the looters are punished by good instructions. Former IGP MD Abubakar this horror commander from his CP Lagos era. They’re from Daura, Katsina State, Borno State and Adamawa State. But are pretending to be Anacho Uzomba and Michiko and our three kids who lived in Den-en-chōfu, Tokyo. Or Anacho who worked tirelessly in the sun, rain and snow in our company, Miana International Limited’s dockyard/okiba in Saitama-ken Great Japan. The strong strength of our claim. They must start behaving like humans and apologize for all their multiple horrors, including to the families of the many murdered witnesses mainly in Lagos State, because it is now clear to us why they used Greenoaks Global Holdings in Great Britain to hijack Union Assurance in 2014 and created many fake documents, including faking human being to have access to our claim. Buhari with his APC party were already on the ground in Lagos before he became president, although for we APC and PDP are the same in criminality. Money in the Nigerian treasury doesn’t belong to the criminal individuals/groups, but law abiding citizens of our country. Enemy of Nigerians with GTB suicide loan, empty vessel Presidency, allow us to receive our claim and stop the assault on the diversity and unity of Nigeria.

It’s our job to simplify this complex process for you – and quickly find results that are both thorough and accurate. Having a background screening of prospective employees or business partners is the most responsible exercise to undertake before hiring employees or before entering into a business agreement in an era when crime and fraudulent activities are on the rise.

Nationwide background investigations can include: identity and address verification, employment history, credit and financial information, past bankruptcies filed and/or approved, criminal records, marriage records, properties owned, business relationsips, charactor references, and more. Pre- Employment Screenings and pre-employment background screening Rather than assume everything on an employment application is true, talk with a private investigator at Doyen's Leverage about a pre-employment screening and nationwide background check. Doyen's Leverage private investigators can provide a comprehensive nationwide background report on potential employees, independent contractors or other people whose services your company is interested in using.
