How well does your bank screen its job applicants? Could you unknowingly hire someone who's been convicted of dishonesty, breach of trust, or money laundering? Having someone on your staff with that sort of background could result in fines (not to mention other negative consequences).
Banks can try to "turn over rocks" on their own or they can use third-party providers to assist in the process. In this case, the old saying - "you get what you pay for" - definitely applies, as some third-party providers offer extremely low-cost services that just scan some public records, or they search records that are not pertinent to the banking industry. We have a solution to help you.
Accudata Credit Systems is offering pre-employment screening services at a discount to members of the Missouri Bankers Association. Accudata has been providing credit reports and related services to financial institutions since 1926.
Accudata provides employers with the most complete and cost-effective nationwide source to conduct extensive background checks on prospective employees (and/or to conduct reviews on current employees). Their web-based data systems deliver your requests quickly with the convenience of having all services processed through one centralized facility located in Jefferson City, Missouri - you're not dealing with a huge faceless conglomerate on the other side of the country.
As a member of Accudata you will have a partner that will provide hands-on analysis and support to help you customize a screening process that meets your risk-based standards. This is achieved by building reports to your specifications instead of a "one size fits all" screening product that is often found with other services.
Accudata delivers an online one-stop solution for all your employment screening needs with the most competitive pricing in the industry without any hidden fees or extra monthly charges. An experienced client services team is well-equipped to provide assistance to your staff throughout the screening process.
