Cleveland, OH, November 29, 2012–It’s well established that a background check plays a critical function in identifying and hiring the best employees. On the flipside, however, that same background check is only as effective and reliable as the screening provider conducting it. So how do organizations sort through the marketing claims to identify the best partner for their needs?

Whether seeking a new provider, conducting due diligence on a current provider or brand new to background screening, HR professionals are invited to attend a free webcast from EmployeeScreenIQ, entitled, “Selecting a Background Screening Provider: What Really Matters.” Scheduled for December 11, this information-packed webinar features an all-star panel of background screening professionals who will reveal to attendees the five most important questions required to successfully evaluate, solicit and select the right screening company for their organizations:

– Kevin Bachman, VP of Quality Service, EmployeeScreenIQ
– Nick Fishman, Chief Marketing Officer, EmployeeScreenIQ
– Nikki Handy, Associate Consultant of HR Compliance and Privacy, Eli Lilly Company
– Darby James, Director of Employee Records, Badging and Backgrounds, Superior Energy Services

Attendees will learn to critically evaluate a provider’s:

– demonstrated expertise;
– legal compliance and client education efforts;
– consumer protection and information security policies;
– quality and accuracy initiatives and
– service deliverables and methodology.

“All screening providers are not created equal and it’s incumbent upon hiring organizations to recognize the key differentiators in order to ensure accurate and compliant background checks,” says Nick Fishman, chief marketing officer for EmployeeScreenIQ. “From statistics to standards, we’ll teach attendees what they should be paying attention to before signing on with a prospective vendor.”

The one-hour presentation will take place on Tuesday, December 11 at 2 p.m. EST (11 a.m. PST). To register, visit:

The HR Certification Institute has pre-approved the webinar for one general recertification credit.
