The Value of Background Screening Accreditation
December 3, 2010
In today’s economic climate, state and federal agencies continue to evaluate how information is used to make hiring decisions. Now more than ever, companies need to rely on partners they can trust to provide accurate, compliant information. Accreditation is the measuring stick employers can rely on to sort through the noise among competing background screening companies all touting the same unparalleled excellence, service, and accuracy. Few employment screening companies have had these claims affirmed by an independent auditor. EmployeeScreenIQ is proud to be one of them.
The National Association of Background Screeners (NAPBS) drafted a brochure for its members concerning the value of accreditation and what it means to an accredited consumer reporting agency like EmployeeScreenIQ. Here’s what they said:
What it means to you (the CRA): Accreditation provides independent validation that your organization achieves industry leading standards for the following, critical client/ consumer areas: Data Security, Compliance, Organizational Performance and Professionalism.
What it means to the marketplace: Accreditation strengthens the marketplace perception of your business’ commitment to best practices, compliance and consumer protection; a powerful advantage in a competitive environment.
What it means to your clients: Accreditation validates your clients’ trust in you as a market leader and reinforces their pledge to minimize risk in the workplace.
We’re honored to be included in this small group of companies who have met this standard and proudly display the accreditation logo.
