Intertek Forms Strategic Alliance With IntelliCorp To Offer Pre-Employment Screening Services

Stocks in this article: VRSK

Intertek (LSE: ITRK) a leading international provider of testing, inspection and certification services, today announced its strategic alliance with Intellicorp Records Inc., a subsidiary of Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK) and a leader in pre-employment screenings. With the agreement, Intertek's Life Safety and Security clients will receive exclusive benefits via IntelliCorp to help streamline the process to complete employee background checks.

The agreement comes at a time when the industry is focusing its attention towards employees of alarm companies. Just recently, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed House Bill 2748 (HB-2748) that requires certification for employees who operate or work for an alarm business within the state of Arizona. Part of this certification requires an application and a background check that must be presented to the Board of Technical Registration before employment.

“We have been tracking industry issues, movements, and pending legislature related to the Alarm Installation Industry for the past several years, and I am pleased to announce that this service will position Intertek as the innovative service leader in this space yet again,” said Tom Connaughton, Global Director of Intertek’s Life Safety and Security Services. “With the recent passing of HB-2748 in Arizona, we expect there will be other states to follow suit, and we want to begin offering this value-added service to our clients now.”

“IntelliCorp is proud of our joint endeavour with Intertek to provide the background screening services the Alarm Installation Industry requires,” says IntelliCorp President Todd Carpenter. “We look forward to supporting the clients of Intertek with accurate and reliable information in order for them to make smart hiring decisions.”

Intertek is the first nationally recognized testing laboratory to align with an employee background check company to offer this service and will be showcasing the new agreement at the 2012 ESX Trade Show in Nashville, TN at booth #1011.
