Our Mission Statement

The mission of Employment Screening Services (ESS) is to provide accurate, reliable, meaningful, cost-effective, and timely pre-employment background services that help our clients make better hiring decisions.

Customer Service

ESS is not a “data broker.” We’re a full service provider.

Our clients know they can always count on us to take care of their needs promptly and precisely. We take customer service very seriously. It’s our top priority. We call it "Business TLC."

And just as importantly, we have the experience and expertise to correctly address your needs. Every one of our executives and managers has been with our company for more than 20 years. Over half of our customer service representatives have been with us for more than 10 years.

We've got employment screening down to a science.

And we’re here when you need us. Our office is staffed twelve hours a day ... so we’ve got all the time zones covered.

Professional Employment Screening

Since our beginning in 1987 we have helped over 10,000 local, regional, national, and international companies with their employment screening needs.

We're large enough to have “staying power” yet not so large we treat you like a number. And we’re nimble enough to accommodate many special requests your company may have. We don’t have a lot of bureaucracy to wade through so we make decisions quickly.

If you’ve ever had issues with a big slow moving company you know how frustrating it can be waiting for a resolution. You won’t experience that with ESS.

We’re a founding member of the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA). Our President has served as the Chairman of the Board of PBSA. So we are highly respected in the industry and continue to be an active participant in its ongoing development.

ESS is federally regulated as a “consumer reporting agency” by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA, Public Law 91-508, Title VI.) We warrant and represent that all reports are obtained through legal sources conforming to all federal and state laws.
