EmployeeScreenIQ Achieves Accreditation from National Background Screening Credentialing Council

CLEVELAND / October 13, 2010 — EmployeeScreenIQ, a global employment screening company, has successfully achieved compliance with the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) accreditation program and will formally be recognized as Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) Accredited.

The recognition, announced earlier this week, represents a background screening organization’s commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards and continued institutional improvement.

“Only one percent of employment screening companies have earned this distinction. We are pleased to share such a small stage,” said Kevin Bachman, vice president of quality service. “EmployeeScreenIQ already operates in accordance with the industry’s best practices; we didn’t have to change who we were for the purpose of pursuing this distinction.”

“This accreditation is an important seal of approval that all companies should look for when choosing a background screening provider,” said Jason Morris, president and COO of EmployeeScreenIQ. “It’s the only program in our field that proves our procedures are compliant with industry best practices, and that affirms our industry knowledge and expertise.”

To become accredited, consumer reporting agencies must pass a rigorous onsite audit, conducted by an independent inspector, of their policies and procedures as they relate to the following critical areas:

– legal compliance,
– consumer protection
– information security
– organizational integrity and ethics
– ability to train and educate clients
– accuracy and depth of products
– quality and accuracy of public record researchers and background specialists
– employees’ background check expertise

“Accreditation is the industry’s primary vehicle for quality assurance, self-regulation and public accountability,” said Tracy Seabrook, CAE, executive director of NAPBS. “Developed and sustained by background screening professionals, accreditation reflects, reinforces and promotes best practices, institutional ethics and the highest standards of background screening operations.”

“This distinction was earned by our staff, who each day demonstrate to our clients that this is not just a plaque hanging in the lobby, but an ethos ingrained in us all,” said Bachman.
