Chris Dyer founded PeopleG2 in 2001 with a singular goal to make his vision for excellence in human capital due diligence services a reality. A recognized authority on human capital intelligence processes and best practices, he understands the complex challenges inherent to talent management decisions.
Chris believes that impersonal, automated background check solutions have little value in the global talent management spectrum, especially as it relates to strategically significant individuals and teams. This is why he built a company with innovative services which mitigate risk and maximize best fits – whether for a prospective candidate, a promotion candidate or even entire executive teams. Chris believes that people drive business forward so being armed with the best intelligence while making people-related decisions is just good business.
With this in mind, he developed PeopleG2 to support a wide mix of clients—including employers/human resources departments, executive leadership teams, business investors, corporate restructuring, merger-and-acquisition architects and even property owners—as they deal with key people-related decisions such as hiring new executives, restructuring around key executives, acquiring a company, or working with a new supplier, customer or partner.
Forbes shared Chris’ insight with readers in the article, “The 10 Dos and Don’ts of Conducting Employee Background Checks.” More recently, About.com published his thoughts on 7 Best Practices for Employment Background Checks. As an expert on the unique challenges associated with due diligence services, Chris educates business leaders and organizations on best practices by speaking to groups on an ongoing basis. Most recently, he addressed the USC Gould Law Alumni Association in conjunction with an EEOC trial attorney who shared an overview of new guidance affecting employers and job candidates across the country.
A Southern California native, Chris is based in Orange County, CA. He is also host of Talent Talk, an Internet radio program on the OC Talk Radio Network, which features interviews with top executives regarding their strategies for hiring and promoting talent. He is a member of The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Professionals in Human Resources Association (PHRA), The Concerned CRAs and The National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS). Chris is a board member of Working Wardrobes, a non-profit organization that empowers men, women, young adults and veterans overcoming difficult challenges to confidently enter the workforce and achieve self-sufficiency. They provide career training, job placement assistance and wardrobe services in an environment of dignity and respect.
