Intelicrunch_Banner_Header.jpg releases 5th edition of ‘In Search of Excellence in Background Screening:, the background screening information portal for Human Resources professionals, announced the release of their fifth edition of 'In Search of Excellence in Background Screening: Best Practices Insights from Accredited Background Screening Firms.' The publication features articles written by firms who have earned accreditation from the Professional Background Screeners Association (PBSA) 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, and publisher, said, “The Best Practice Insights from Accredited Background Screening Firms” guide is the only publication exclusively dedicated to showcasing accredited background screening firms and it is a must read for hiring professionals who want to be current on ‘background screening best practices.”
