New Feature -- The Alert Summary Line

Beginning August 1, you will notice something new on the ESS Report Summary Page – the Alert Summary Line. Whenever a component of the ESS Report has been “alerted” due to discrepant or negative information, a brief description of the reason for the Alert will appear directly beneath the component on the report summary page.

ESS already uses the Special Alert Notification to quickly notify clients whenever a new Alert has been posted to an ESS Report. Now, the Alert Summary Line will further assist clients to efficiently determine if the matter requires immediate review and/or action, (such as ask questions, give instructions, or possibly start an adverse action).

IMPORTANT: The ESS Report Summary Page should never replace a full review of the entire ESS Report. Report content may contain specific details and nuanced information that cannot be fully summarized into a single page. Employment decisions should not be based solely on information on the ESS Report Summary Page.

If you do not wish to see the Alert Summary Line on the summary page, let us know.

NAPBS Accreditation

ESS is accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®.) Specifically, we have demonstrated compliance with the Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program and are recognized as "BSCC–Accredited."

The BSCC oversees the application process and is the governing accreditation body that validates whether a background screening organization has met or exceeded a measurable standard of competence.

This recognition is important because it stands as the industry "seal" representing a background screening organization's commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards, and continued institutional improvement.

To become accredited, ESS passed a rigorous onsite audit, conducted by an independent auditing firm, of our policies and procedures as they relate to six critical areas: consumer protection, legal compliance, client education, product standards, service standards, and general business practices.

ESS is one of the founding members of the NAPBS and has been involved in its ongoing development over many years. Our President is a former Chairman of the Board of the NAPBS and was instrumental in implementing the accreditation process. Our Vice President of Operations and our Vice President of Marketing have been NAPBS committee members.
