ALPHARETTA, Ga. (PRWEB) April 12, 2018
PreemploymentDirectory.com, the background screening information portal for Human Resources professionals, announced they will release the third edition of 'In Search of Excellence in Background Screening: Best Practices Insights from Accredited Background Screening Firms' at the upcoming SHRM Talent Management Conference being held on Aprll 16-17th in Las Vegas. The publication features articles written by firms who have earned accreditation from the National Association for Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), which is the trade association for the global background screening profession.
To earn accreditation, firms must implement the standards as defined by the Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC), which certifies that background screening firms follow the Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP) Standard. This process ensures companies comply with relevant laws, ethical business practice and demonstrates a commitment to excellence. It’s not sufficient to merely reflect the standards in official policies. It must also be demonstrable in daily business operations and this is verified by an onsite review of the firm by an independent auditor.
W. Barry Nixon, COO, http//\PreemploymentDirectory.com and publisher, said, “The Best Practice Insights from Accredited Background Screening Firms publication is a must read for HR and Hiring professionals who want to be current on ‘best practices’ and receive guidance from some of the best firms in the background screening industry.”
Nixon added, “Its’ estimated that there are 2,500 – 3,000 background screening firms and there are only 100 accredited background screening firms that have earned this coveted ‘seal of approval’ as a bearer of industry established best practices.”
Here’s what some of the firms that have earned accreditation say about earning this heralded accomplishment:
Christine M. Cunneen, CEO, Hire Image LLC, said, “Applying for and achieving accreditation status has elevated our company to a higher level of standards. We are a better company because of it and our thankful to NAPBS for creating the program that allows us to set ourselves apart from those that do not achieve accreditation."
Rachid Zahidi, CEO, Sentinel Background Checks, said, “We are honored to be part of a select number of organizations that have achieved accreditation. This is a result of adherence to responsible, fair and ethical practices and standards our clients have already been experiencing for years; and it is great to see it validated by Industry Peers and an official vetting and accreditation body!”
Ji Kim, Director of Business Development, Shield Screening, said, “Accreditation sets an industry standard of excellence that ensures the company and clients you serve are protected and secure!”
