COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 15, 2008 - A business's success depends on the quality of its work force. And in challenging economic conditions, it's more important than ever to do everything possible to hire the right people.

Motorists Mutual Insurance Co. (www.motoristsmutual.com) and the companies of The Motorists Insurance Group are helping commercial policyholders and independent agents make sure they find the right people to help their business grow and maintain a safe workplace.

The company recently entered an agreement with IntelliCorp to provide background-screening services at a reduced cost to the independent agents who represent Motorists Mutual and commercial customers. Motorists is among the first in the industry to offer this service.

IntelliCorp is a leading national provider of background checks. The company provides services for some of the largest companies and nonprofit organizations in the country. IntelliCorp services help reduce exposure to fraud, workplace violence, and negligent hiring lawsuits.

"This is an example of our commitment to being a trusted and valuable business partner," says Motorists Mutual Marketing Vice President Grady Campbell. "We are making this valuable service available to our agents and commercial policyholders so they can have some peace of mind that they are hiring the best people who can help their business grow profitably."

IntelliCorp's database is continually updated, and records are compiled from the broadest range of sources available - state, county, local and municipal. And through IntelliCorp's stringent quality-assurance and data-management program, customers are provided with industry-leading criminal information.

Motorists is providing quick and easy online access to IntelliCorp's services through a link on motoristsmutual.com. After registering and credentialing with IntelliCorp, customers may perform searches and view results through a link on the Motorists Mutual Web site.

"It's important to us that we do everything we can to help safeguard what's most important to our customers and provide them some peace of mind," says Vice President Tamy Stephens, Commercial Lines Division. "Businesses, in times like these, need all the assistance they can get, and we're excited to help them succeed."
