EBI Sets Background Check Industry Record with 2019 HRO Today's Baker's Dozen Listing

(Owings Mills, Maryland, November 21, 2019) - Employment Background Investigations, Inc. (EBI) is proud to be recognized by HRO Today’s 2019 Baker’s Dozen as a top employment screening provider an unprecedented 12 times. This sets a record in the background check industry and firmly establishes EBI as the most award-winning Consumer Reporting Agency in the HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen history. This latest accolade follows a tremendously successful year in which EBI founder and CEO Rick Kurland earned the title of HR Superstar by HRO Today, and EBI also finished #1 for quality of service and #1 for breadth of service in the 2018 Enterprise category.

“EBI is the first and only screening firm to make the HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen list 12 times,” said Kurland. “This is a wonderful accomplishment and is a credit to our incredible team of employees who work day in and day out to deliver a WOW Experience to our clients. It is our mission to give clients the absolute best in quality, customer care, compliance, and technology each day and I can proudly say we do this.”

About the Baker's Dozen List

HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings list recognizes customer service excellence across the entire screening industry. Hundreds of pre-employment screening providers exist; the Baker’s Dozen Overall Enterprise Leaders list recognizes the top 13 national screening providers as voted by more than 1,300 screening clients who were anonymously asked to score and rank providers in three categories: service breadth, size of deals, and quality of service. The list is reviewed and compiled by HRO Today Magazine, a leading publication for human resource professionals. Companies fall into either mid-sized or enterprise-caliber.

“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.”

Importance of Background Screening

Comprehensive background checks are an essential tool HR professionals use during the hiring process. An EBI pre-employment screening report dramatically reduces a business’ risk and can help keep the workplace safe.

“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 form the very fabric of EBI. We can’t thank our team enough for all their hard work and our customers for their continued loyalty.”
