GIS Lauded as One of Fastest Growing Companies in South Carolina

Chapin, S.C.– General Information Services, Inc. (GIS), a leading provider of background screening and talent acquisition solutions, has been recognized as one of the 25 fastest growing companies in South Carolina.

The recognition, which comes from the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce, was one of many in 2011. GIS was also recognized by the Chamber of Commerce as one of the largest private companies in the state as part of the South Carolina 100 and was recognized earlier in the year by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in America.

Said Ray Conrad, owner and CEO of GIS, “GIS has been able to grow in spite of the economy for one simple reason: We are able to show that we are the best solution for background screening and talent acquisition. We are able to show that we are serious in our commitment to customer service and we are able to show that we are serious in our commitment to innovation.”

This innovation manifests itself in many ways. While always looking to better their product lines by introducing new services and improving on others, GIS focuses on creating state-of-the-art hiring tools that clients can access at no additional charge.  These tools help clients navigate hiring regulations both domestically and internationally, simplify the process of ordering background checks and ease the burden of new hire paperwork.

In order to qualify for South Carolina’s Fastest-Growing Companies, companies must be a non-government entity headquartered in South Carolina that has been in operation for at least 3 years. Additionally, the company must meet a revenue threshold. To qualify for the South Carolina 100 listing, companies must be privately held, headquartered in South Carolina and not a subsidiary of another company. Additionally, while all industries were welcome for South Carolina’s Fastest-Growing Companies, certain types of institutions were not eligible for the South Carolina 100.
