MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orange Tree Employment Screening announced today that the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) has awarded Orange Tree continued accreditation by the NAPBS Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC). The continued accreditation is the result of Orange Tree's successful completion of an interim surveillance audit and the BSCC's approval of the findings of that audit. Orange Tree was originally accredited by the BSCC in 2011 for a five year term.

When asked what this ongoing national recognition means, Heidi Seaton, VP of Operations and Compliance, said "We hold ourselves accountable to the industry's highest standards, and to continuously improving our services and process to benefit our clients. Continued accreditation by the BSCC affirms our efforts in these areas. Successful completion of this audit and continued accreditation is a critical industry endorsement of Orange Tree Employment Screening's business practices."

NAPBS launched the Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP) in April 2009, to serve as the industry's primary vehicle for quality assurance, self-regulation, and public accountability. To become accredited, screening firms must pass a rigorous audit of policies and procedures related to six critical areas: Consumer protection; Legal compliance; Client education; Product standards; Service standards; and General business practices. The BSCC oversees the application process and ensures all organizations seeking accreditation meet or exceed a measurable standard of competence in these six areas.
