Updated: Client communication regarding coronavirus – March 20, 2020

As noted in our previous communication, disaster preparedness is an integral part of our risk management program and includes pandemic preparedness. As the “Safer at Home” emergency order went into effect for Los Angeles County on March 19, we have fully activated our business continuation plan in both our headquarters in Woodland Hills, CA and as a precautionary measure, in our Rocky River, OH office.

The plan is multi-faceted and has been designed to provide a seamless remote operation–our workforce has the training, equipment, technology support and other resources necessary to provide the quality reports and exceptional service you expect. 

We are committed to doing our part to limit the spread of the virus and remain dedicated to the health, well-being, and safety of our employees and clients. And, just as importantly, we are committed to being here for you. 

We recognize this is a tough situation for all of us and we wish you well during this time. Please continue to reach out to us with any questions or needs.

Scherzer International Hosts C5LA Executive Leadership Lunch

C5LA Youth Leaders with SI employees on March 28th, 2017

On March 28th, Scherzer International had the pleasure of hosting an amazing group of students from the C5LA Youth Foundation. The students began their visit in the company’s conference room, where managers and executives gave presentations describing their duties, their department’s role in the company, and their personal academic and career paths. The session wrapped up with a lively discussion driven by the C5LA students’ questions about background checks, running a business and innovation.

Afterwards, students and staff gathered in the break room for a social lunch to get a sense of the company’s culture and work environment.  After filling up on lunch and conversation, the students were given a tour of SI’s office to see what happens “behind the scenes” when preparing background reports.

Our C5LA guests wrapped up their visit by hearing from our HR manager who described SI’s summer internship program, which has included C5LA students in past years, some of whom have chosen to return to SI as full time employees. Everyone at SI agrees that any one of the students who visited us in March would be a great asset to the team!

Larry and Carole Scherzer both serve on the C5LA foundation’s Board of Directors and are strong supporters of the organization’s mission and programs. C5LA aims to provide underserved adolescents throughout the Los Angeles area with the resources and opportunities necessary for them to successfully pursue a college education and lead in their communities.

About the C5LA visit, Larry Scherzer said, “It was very moving to see such bright, ambitious students engaging with SI’s employees and taking such interest in our business. I keep thinking about one of C5LA’s theme songs, Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”

Scherzer International makes a conscious effort to give back to the community as much as possible. The company regularly participates in fundraisers and toy drives benefiting organizations such as the Arthritis Foundation and Child and Family Guidance Center.

Scherzer International’s participation in Arthritis Foundation’s annual Jingle Bell Run in Los Angeles

UPDATE: Scherzer International is proud to have raised over $5,000 during the Arthritis Foundation’s Jingle Bell Run fundraiser this year! We’d like to express a special thank you to everyone for their donations and helping to spread the word. The event on December 11th was a great success and a good time for all who participated.

Scherzer International is excited to once again participate in the Arthritis Foundation’s annual Jingle Bell Run in Los Angeles! As many of us know too well, arthritis steals everyday joys and long-term dreams. It is painful and often devastating to nearly 53 million U.S. sufferers, their families, their employers, and the economy.  It does not discriminate by age, gender, race, nationality, or socio-economic status.  

 The Arthritis Foundation exists to conquer arthritis (an umbrella term covering over 120 different forms including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, ankylosing spondylitis, juvenile arthritis, and several others) by funding research for better treatment options and a cure; advocating for patient access to optimal care; serving as the go-to resource for patient information and education; and empowering 300,000 families and their children who suffer with juvenile arthritis.    

 That’s why we have committed to help in combatting arthritis head-on.  We invite you to join us and over 1,500 people in supporting the 2016 Los Angeles Jingle Bell Run/Walk on Sunday, December 11, 2016.

 This festive, holiday-themed (complete with jingle-bells shoe laces and other cool adornments), family-friendly race offers a timed 5K run/walk experience that takes participants through the streets of beautiful downtown Glendale.  We ask that you please help in one or more ways:

  • sponsor the event – various levels are available with great marketing benefits for your company;
  • form a Jingle Bells Run/Walk team with your business, family or friends
  • Visit our team page at

Your generous support is greatly appreciated. We look forward to seeing you with bells on!
