CLEVELAND, Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- EmployeeScreenIQ (www.employeescreen.com), a global provider of employment background screening services has been approved by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) to join its Preferred Provider Network.
EmployeeScreenIQ can now award SHRM Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for the programs that the company offers relating to the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK), including webinars, speaking engagements, podcast, e-learning and other programs. The SHRM BoCK contains the knowledge and behaviors on which the new SHRM certifications are based.
"With all of the litigation and legislation surrounding employers' use of employment background checks, it is more important than ever for human resources professionals to stay ahead of the curve," said Nick Fishman, EmployeeScreenIQ executive vice president and chief marketing officer. "We look forward to providing quality educational opportunities to support the recertification efforts of the HR community who obtain their SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP Certifications."
SHRM established the SHRM Preferred Provider Program to give organizations that offer education, training and/or other HR-related Competency and Knowledge programming the opportunity to award PDCs, without pre-approval by SHRM, during a 2-year period. Companies who earn SHRM Preferred Provider status must meet a number of stringent qualifications, which ensure that sound learning principles are incorporated into the program. Being identified as a SHRM Preferred Provider eliminates the guesswork for credential holders, who know that the programs qualify for recertification credits.
EmployeeScreenIQ helps employers make smart hiring decisions. The company achieves this through a comprehensive suite of employment background screening services including the industry's most thorough and accurate criminal background checks, resume verification services and substance abuse screening. EmployeeScreenIQ is accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), a distinction earned by less than two percent of all employment screening companies.
