Universal Background Screening named to the 2013 “Hot List” of Background Check Providers.
The annual list published by Workforce Magazine marks the fourth consecutive year recognizing Universal among the top screening providers in the United States
Universal Background Screening, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been named to Workforce Magazine’s 2013 “Hot List” of background screening providers. Universal has previously been named to this list each year for the past three years.
Workforce Magazine covers the intersection of people management and business strategy, focused on senior-level human resources executives in the 2,500 largest employers in America. The publication’s editorial focus is to help these talent management decision makers approach Human Resource business processes from a strategic, big picture, results-driven perspective.
“Universal Background Screening has a passionate focus to provide the very best service to every client, with every order, every time.” said Kevin Olson, Chairman and CEO of Universal. “We are honored to be recognized for our broad range of products and services by Workforce Magazine, and to be included in this list of top background screening providers.”
Each year, employers in the United States request millions of background checks to assist with critical hiring decisions. These reports are regulated at both the federal and state level, and may include a review of an individual’s criminal history, employment experience, educational credentials and reference interviews, plus checks of driving records, sanctions lists and other public record sources.
Consistently ranked and recognized as one of the top screening firms in the United States, Universal is among a select few to achieve accreditation through a comprehensive program established by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®). To become accredited, a screening agency must pass a rigorous onsite audit of its policies and procedures across six critical areas: consumer protection, legal compliance, client education, product standards, service standards, and general business practices.
“We are thrilled to be recognized again this year as an industry leader by Workforce Magazine,” said Ryan Krostue, COO of Universal. “While Universal Background Screening takes considerable pride in achieving this annual recognition, the true measure of our success is delivering an outstanding customer experience, each and every day.”
Inclusion in this year’s Workforce Magazine “Hot List” further validates the experience of Universal’s nationwide customers, which is that the company provides the highest quality, compliant background check services. Universal holds numerous distinctions, including NAPBS accreditation, software 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.
