EBI Named the #1 Enterprise Background Screening Company on 2018 Baker's Dozen List

Owings Mills, MD — Employment Background Investigations, Inc. (EBI), a national leader in background screening solutions, is thrilled to announce that it has been named the top enterprise screening company on HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen List of Top Pre-Employment Screening Companies. EBI is now the most awarded screening firm in Baker’s Dozen history.

“Every time you turn around, a huge background screening company is acquiring a smaller competitor and forcing them into their corporate machine,” said EBI founder and CEO Richard Kurland. “Staying autonomous has allowed EBI to give customers the absolute best in quality, customer care, compliance and technology. It is wonderful to be recognized not only as the top screening company in the US, but as the first and only to make the list 11 times!”


The Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings List is the largest and most respected survey of its kind, based solely on feedback from consumers, and not the HRO staff. This year 1300 screening customers were asked to answer 42 questions based on three categories: the breadth of service provided by their screening partner, the size of the deal, and the overall quality of service they receive.

This year, there are two Pre-Employment Screening Baker’s Dozen categories – one for mid-size deals and one for enterprise deals. There are nearly a thousand background screening firms, but only the top 13 make each list.

“Congratulations to EBI. They have been a fixture on the Baker’s Dozen since 2005,” said Elliot Clark, CEO of HRO Today Magazine. “The Baker’s Dozen represents the very best Pre-Employment screening companies in the industry. It’s a great resource for HR professionals when choosing a screening provider.”

“EBI’s top priorities are quality and customer service,” said Larry White, President and COO of EBI. “While the Baker’s Dozen List can change dramatically from year to year, we are very proud to consistently be at the top. Our team works hard every day to offer the best customer care, quality and reliability in the industry. Making the Baker’s Dozen each year shows we don’t just pay lip-service to these ideals; rather, they are the very fabric that makes up EBI. We can’t thank our team members enough for all of the hard work they put in every day and our customers for their continued loyalty, making EBI the country’s leader in enterprise background screening.”
