Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
HRO Today magazine, a leading publication for human resource decision makers, has recognized Universal Background Screening as a top provider of background screening services in the United States in its annual employer survey. The recently issued report marks the 5th consecutive year that Universal has been recognized for its consistently superior services.
The HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen rankings are based solely on feedback from employers who have current or prior experiences with screening providers that are evaluated. The scoring model includes such metrics as quality of service, breadth of service and size of customers. Final results are determined statistically based on the survey data, and are not the opinions of HRO Today staff.
“We take pride in having a culture focused on our clients’ needs,” said Kevin Olson, Chairman and CEO of Universal Background Screening. “It’s an honor to be recognized for the 5th year in a row by our Clients and HRO Today Magazine.”
The issue of HRO Today included a cover story about the expansion of background screening programs, both domestic and international. Ryan Krostue, Chief Operating Officer of Universal Background Screening, was asked to comment on the topic, and said that Universal is “seeing an expansion of the scope of due diligence requests by employers, both in terms of the initial background checks as well as the frequency of screening.”
Universal Background Screening was also recently recognized by Workforce Magazine in that publication’s “Hot List” of background check providers.
Universal is a founding member the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®) and was among the first screening providers to be accredited by the NAPBS’ Accreditation Program. The accreditation process includes a rigorous onsite audit of policies and procedures across six critical areas: consumer protection, legal compliance, client education, product standards, service standards, and general business practices.
Universal’s numerous distinctions include; NAPBS accreditation, technical certification through the HR-XML Consortium, Safe Harbor Certification for the proper transfer of sensitive data, and top scores for customer service in national employer surveys.
