The preferred source of background investigations to organizations that recognize the value of reliable due diligence.

Our clients make better hiring, procurement, and investment decisions because they have the best information available about the character, experience, and competence of those they involve in their businesses. Mike Coffey, SPHR, who founded Imperative in 1999, has assembled a strong team of professionals with backgrounds in human resources, criminal justice, information technology, and a variety of other disciplines. The Imperative team is committed to our clients' success. In an industry dominated by giant data brokers promoting instant background checks, Mike's obsession with thorough, straightforward reports has made Imperative Information Group a true exception. Rather than present our clients with detailed disclaimers regarding accuracy and/or reliability, we provide consistent reports with exacting quality.
