Navy veteran Joel Goldberg founded Aurico Reports in 1991, running it out of an extra bedroom in his home. Over twenty years later, the company occupies a 3 story office building in Arlington Heights, Illinois and provides a comprehensive array of in-depth background screening, drug testing, assessment tools and related resources that help companies find and retain the "A" players - the best people for the job opening they seek to fill. Aurico is recognized as an industry leader due to their exceptional commitment to accuracy, consistent quality, fast turnaround, and solutions-based approach. By partnering with an organization’s Human Resources department, they increase that organization’s efficiency, lower their recruitment costs and improve their organizational performance.
Beginning in 2009, SCORE mentors Leo Dietlin, Don Crossett, Jerry Hicks and Jay Rowell began carefully evaluating Aurico’s operations, corporate structure and strategic plan, looking for new opportunities for growth and planning the company’s long-term course of action, including incorporating the talents and experience of the founder’s son, Ben Goldberg. The SCORE team recommended a strategy and goals that the Aurico team now uses to benchmark its accomplishments and develop annual planning and directions. The results were obvious – they now serve 2,500 clients nationwide and boast a 97% client retention rate since 1991. They continue to regularly meet with their team of SCORE mentors to assist in managing their resulting growth.
