PreemploymentDirectory.com, the background screening information portal for Human Resources professionals, announced the release of their newest publication, 'In Search of Excellence in Background Screening: Best Practices Insights from Accredited Background Screening Firms' at the recent SHRM Talent Management Conference in Chicago. The guide 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, PreemploymentDirectory.com and publisher, said, “The articles in the Best Practice Insights from Accredited Background Screening Firms publication provide HR and Hiring professionals the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge about the employment screening process from firms that represent the ‘best of the profession.’ Nixon added, “Our goal is to help hiring professionals and managers improve their employment screening practices at a time when lawsuits dealing with background screening are at an all-time high. More than 92% of employers conduct background checks and we want to help them embrace best practices and industry standards.”
About 5% of U.S. background screening firms have earned accreditation from NAPBS at this time.
