Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) May 9, 2006
Universal Background Screening today announced its sponsorship of and participation in Kennedy Information’s Recruiting 2006 Conference and Expo. The twelfth annual conference, to be held May 10th and 11th at the Las Vegas Hilton, delivers strategies for success to the nation’s top recruiters and human resource professionals. Universal Background Screening is the Platinum Sponsor of this year’s event.
“The mission of Recruiting 2006 fits perfectly with the strategic approach that Universal Background Screening takes with our clients,” said Ryan Krostue, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Universal. “We work in partnership with our customers to develop background screening strategies that increase the quality and caliber of applicants, while reducing risk through a safer and drug-free workplace.”
Educational opportunities for attendees include a keynote presentation by Jason Warner, Director of North American Recruiting for Starbucks, as well as workshops on such topics as recruiting trends, outsourcing/insourcing, workforce shortages, strategic recruitment and corporate culture. This year’s Recruiting Conference includes a special educational track devoted to healthcare.
Background checks designed for the specific needs of healthcare providers are a focus for Universal Background Screening. The company provides background checks for healthcare organizations nationwide, including Banner Health System’s 20 facilities in seven states. Universal also holds the distinction of preferred and recommended background screening vendor for members of the Arizona and Colorado Hospital Associations, and is a member of both the American Society for Healthcare Human Resource Administration (ASHHRA) and National Association of Health Care Recruiters (NAHCR).
Another differentiator in healthcare background checks is Universal’s system integration with Position Manager, the leading healthcare applicant tracking system installed at over 580 hospitals nationwide. This direct XML integration eliminates faxing and data re-entry by pre-populating the background check order with details such as employment history, education, professional license and other information directly from an applicant’s existing profile. Mutual customers of Position Manager and Universal have benefited from reduced effort in ordering, simplified applicant management and faster background check results.
Universal Background Screening can be found at Booth 201 and 203 from 1 to 7:30 pm on Wednesday, May 10th and from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on Thursday, May 11th.
