Healthcare Background Screening Firm PreCheck Wins 2014 Crystal Award

PreCheck, an employment and background screening firm specializing in the healthcare industry, received a Crystal Award by the American Marketing Association (AMA) during the 28th annual ceremony held at Houston’s Hyatt Regency Hotel on Thursday, May 29, 2014. For the category of Online Blog, the PreCheck Blog was recognized as this year’s winning entry based on its increased traffic and engagement during 2013.

Each year, the Houston Chapter of the AMA sponsors the Crystal Awards in recognition of the most notable marketing initiatives. A select panel of national marketing professionals traveled to Houston to judge over 300 entries in the competition from companies, organizations and institutions. Unlike other awards programs, the Crystal Awards are based on results and winners are selected based on the effectiveness of their marketing campaigns.

“PreCheck’s Marketing department has had a phenomenal year, winning a Crystal Award in May as well as two Digital AVA Awards and an Internet Advertising Competition Award earlier this year,” stated Bryan Barajas, Marketing Director at PreCheck. “In 2013, we published 55 articles for the PreCheck Blog, and we’re on pace to double that number this year. Not only did we significantly increase visits to our blog last year, but we also increased the average time spent during each visit by 74.55%. I look forward to working with my incredibly talented and passionately committed team to create more remarkable content for our clients and prospective customers.”

PreCheck’s Marketing team also includes Gracie Gonzales, Associate Creative Director, and Antique Nguyen, Marketing Specialist. The PreCheck Blog also features articles written by members of other departments, including Product Management, Operations, and Client Services. PreCheck’s blog covers background screening best practices with a healthcare focus as well as the latest healthcare trends and compliance issues.
