Insperity, Inc. (NYSE: NSP), a leading provider of human resources and business performance solutions for America’s best businesses, is redefining background check standards with a comprehensive employment screening solution that ensures the accuracy and safe handling of sensitive data, compliance with regulatory requirements and an industry-leading turnaround time that gives companies an edge in hiring top talent. “ InsperityTM Employment Screening has the resources, experience and technology to secure reliable background checks for small to large companies without turning to risky, third-party sources,” said Jeffrey A. Jones, Insperity Employment Screening division president. “Missing out on the best candidates because of slow background checks or making a bad hiring decision because of faulty information puts a company at a competitive disadvantage, creates negligent hiring risks and, for small businesses, can be financially crippling.” Comprehensive employment screening, including an extensive criminal background check, is completed in just two to three days, compared with the industry average of five days, giving customers a competitive advantage in the race for the best candidates. Many background checks rely on a national criminal database that captures only 20 percent of critical information on a local level, but Insperity’s nationwide presence “puts boots on the ground” where job applicants live and work, Jones said, promising careful and precise scrutiny of local court records. “We employ a team of proven researchers who go directly to the source for information, then we automatically and independently re-verify any negative results and give the employer the guidance and tools necessary to appropriately manage any situation,” said Jones. Support with compliance of regulatory requirements is provided by a skilled customer service team whose members average 17 years of experience. Analysis of employment history, Social Security fraud protection and education verification are accomplished entirely in-house by professional researchers. Advanced technology also provides customers with easy Web access to screening information, including an ability to check the status of a review each step along the way, as well as options for customization and prompt phone support.
