When it comes to reputable, trustworthy and compliant performance, Orange Tree Employment Screening is at the top of our field. We've been recognized on Workforce Management Magazine's Hot List of Background Checking Providers for four years running, and we're a three-time winner of HRO Today's Baker's Dozen Award for Customer Satisfaction in Employee Screening. In the past, we've also been consistently accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners. We're pleased to announce we have once again met compliance requirements for the council's Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program. 

"Orange Tree helps employers find skilled, trustworthy candidates."

What is accreditation?

Background screening companies perform a vital function in hiring process. We help employers find skilled, trustworthy candidates who don't pose a threat to themselves or others while on the job. By using a background checking service, your business hires the best employees while staying compliant with state and federal laws.

Unfortunately, some organizations do not adhere to the laws and regulations regarding the background screening process. By not doing their due diligence, these companies transfer risk to businesses that make hiring decisions based on their results. 

Thankfully, the NAPBS established the Background Screening Credentialing Council, an organization that created rules and guidelines for industry-related best practices. The BSCC, which created the BSAAP, helps business leaders and human resource departments choose background screening companies that adhere to legal standards. To achieve accredited status from the BSAAP, a third-party auditor evaluated our agency's processes, making sure we met the highest standards in the following areas:

  • General business practices.
  • Client education.
  • Consumer protection.
  • Legal compliance.
  • Verification service standards.
  • Researcher and data product standards.

Because we've achieved this standing, Orange Tree customers know they can put their trust in our background screening methods.

Pride at Orange Tree

Being an accredited service exemplifies our dedication to our clients. We understand that screening potential employees properly is a task many departments aren't equipped to handle. Orange Tree is happy to do this work for you. As detailed in our press release, you can rest assured Orange Tree adheres to all ethical and legal standards.

"We are extremely proud of this re-accreditation as it represents our commitment to the highest professional standards where we focus on continuous improvement, accountability to compliance and business excellence always with our clients' benefit in mind," Heidi Seaton, vice president of legal and compliance, said in the press release. "This endorsement is an opportunity to showcase our dedicated efforts and highlights our expertise as a market leader in the background screening industry."

We at Orange Tree will continue going above and beyond for our clients by providing exemplary background checks and outstanding applicant tracking and candidate experience solutions. We look forward to a successful re-accreditation process once again in five years, and we hope you'll be there with us.
