Chapin, S.C. — General Information Services, Inc. (GIS), a leading provider of background screening and talent acquisition solutions, has achieved accreditation through NAPBS’ Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP).
The accreditation program, established by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) and managed by the Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC), ensures that background screening companies follow high standards in dealing with background checks and personal data.
“GIS has always been known for providing high quality background screening services by going the extra mile, not cutting corners and most importantly, not offshoring any of our services, even as we have grown from a small background screening company to one of the largest in the world,” said Ray Conrad, owner and CEO of GIS. “We are very pleased to have achieved the accreditation and to have NAPBS validate how we operate.”
The BSCC oversees the application process and is the governing accreditation body that ensures that any organization seeking accreditation meets or exceeds a measurable standard of competence. To become accredited, background screening companies must pass a rigorous onsite audit, conducted by an independent auditing firm, of its policies and procedures as they relate to six critical areas: consumer protection, legal compliance, client education, product standards, service standards, and general business practices.
As senior vice president of operations and member of GIS’ compliance counsel, Lori Webb was particularly satisfied with the accreditation. “As an original member of NAPBS, it was important for us to seek accreditation,” she said. “We know how valuable NAPBS is and we know how high their standards are. For the background screening industry’s most well-respected association to give us their seal of approval is a huge accomplishment.”
