GIS Named to HRO Today's Bakers Dozen for Employee Screening

Chapin, S.C. – General Information Services, Inc. (GIS), a leading provider of background screening and talent acquisition solutions, has been named to HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen for Employee Screening.

To determine the ranking, clients of top background screening providers complete a short survey that discusses services provided, scope of services and quality and satisfaction with the services. HRO Today then compiles and ranks the information.

“Ultimately, GIS was included in this ranking because of our clients’ satisfaction with our services,” said Ray Conrad, owner and CEO of GIS.  “In spite of that, we are not content with sitting idly by and letting these services carry us. Instead, we are always anticipating client needs by adding new products and improving on existing ones to remain a leader in client satisfaction.”

In the past year alone, GIS has grown their Pangea Talent Acquisition Suite to facilitate salaried hiring in addition to high-volume hourly hiring and, in a move that has aided many, has begun providing a domestic regulatory research map.  This solution details regulations by state and helps clients determine what screenings they must (or must not) perform.  The background screening regulations map is similar in nature to the International Screening Information System, an international regulatory research map that GIS began providing in 2005.

More importantly, these innovations have not lost their value over the years.  As one of the first background screening companies in the U.S., GIS is well known for being one of the first to provide a secure online background screening portal.  They are also recognized for having KwikScreen (one of the largest national criminal databases in the industry) and for using KwikScreen to help clients ensure that the people they hire remain free of adverse findings.
