DataScreening has received it’s PPP funding.
As a result, all employees have been back to working full time. In addition, turning this unfortunate event into a positive one as much as possible, we have currently implemented an Enhanced Vendor Management Program. This includes having a portion of one of our research teams completely dedicated to update and enhance all background check retrieval methods.
DataScreening is also currently completing a certification process that recognizes background check companies for being in the top 5% in the industry with regards to their process, compliance, and security. We are enormously proud of all of our employees in maintaining such high standards.
As we move past these unforeseen times, we ultimately grow; by helping each other get stronger and smarter. DataScreening is completely dedicated to our employees, our clients, and anyone else that we can help and guide through this period.
From our team to yours, keep healthy and stay safe.
-Karen Jacobsen, President
