What is the associated cost?
ALKU is committed to providing quality consultants to your company at a competitive price. We are able to offer competitive pricing as we don’t pay the overhead of an idle bench of consultants.

What kind of background checks do you provide?
Every applicant is reference checked based on the work history provided by the applicant. At our clients’ request, a drug screen and a criminal background check are processed as well. ALKU can provide these services as well as meet any other needs you might have for pre-employment screening.
