EBI Named 2018 Baker’s Dozen Top Background Screening Company

Owings Mills, Maryland – November 16, 2018: Employment Background Investigations, Inc. (EBI) is thrilled to announce that it has been voted the top Enterprise Pre-Employment Screening company on HRO Today Baker’s Dozen List. EBI also finished #1 for quality of service and #1 for breadth of services in the Enterprise category. EBI is now the most awarded screening firm in Baker’s Dozen history.

“Every time you turn around, a huge background screening company is acquiring a smaller competitor and forcing them into their corporate machine,” said EBI founder and CEO Richard Kurland. “Staying autonomous has allowed EBI to give customers the absolute best in quality, customer care, compliance and technology. It is wonderful to be recognized not only as the top screening company, but as the first and only to make the list 11 times.”

About the Baker's Dozen List

The Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings List is the HR community's largest and most respected survey. Each year HRO Today provides customer satisfaction ratings for various HR service providers. Results are based on survey results from consumers, and not the HRO staff.

This year 1,300 customers were anonymously surveyed. Their answers were used to score and rank providers in three categories: breadth of services, size of deals, and quality of service. Companies fall into either mid-sized or enterprise-level. Out of the hundreds that exist, only 13 pre-employment screening providers appear on the final list.

“Congratulations to EBI. They have been a fixture on the Baker’s Dozen since 2005,” said Elliot Clark, CEO of HRO Today Magazine. “The Baker’s Dozen represents the very best Pre-Employment screening companies in the industry. It’s a great resource for HR professionals when choosing a screening provider.”

“EBI’s top priorities are quality and customer service,” said Larry White, President and COO of EBI. “While the Baker’s Dozen List can change from year to year, we're very proud to consistently be at the top. Our team works hard every day to offer the best customer care, quality and reliability in the industry. Making the Baker’s Dozen each year shows we don’t just pay lip-service to these ideals; rather, they're the very fabric of EBI. We can’t thank our team enough for all their hard work and our customers for their continued loyalty.”
