Today PreemploymentDirectory.com celebrated the announcement by MarCom that their two flagship newsletters for the background screening industry were selected as top performers in the 2015 awards competition. MarCom’s International Awards Competition has become one of the largest competitions for marketing and communications professionals in the world.
The Global Background Screener was selected as a Gold winner. It was launched in March 2015 to provide the worldwide background screening community with a top quality news source to keep them informed about what is happening all around the world. The Background Buzz received honorable mention. It has grown to become the leading e-publication in the background screening industry since being launched in June 2004 and regularly reports relevant news to professional background screeners and human resources professionals.
W. Barry Nixon, COO, PreemploymentDirectory.com said, “Our team is ecstatic to be recognized for creating two of the top e-newsletters in the world.

He said, “All our fights over color choices, images and look really paid off.”
