Retail Background Screening
GIS is a leading provider of background screening solutions for many of the largest retailers in the world, and we understand the nuances and unique needs and considerations that exist. In an industry employing over 24 million personnel with annual sales of over $4.7 trillion (national figures), providing solutions engineered to positively impact issues of employee quality, turnover, and employee-related shrink is a top priority. Our screening and loss prevention solutions are built from best practices based on almost half a century of industry experience, providing top retailers across the globe with programs to combat the challenges affecting retail head-on.
We offer a number of screening solutions specifically designed for the retail industry. As retail organizations handle consumer money, and often deal with the issues of high turnover, absenteeism, substance abuse, and workplace violence, it is increasingly important to protect your organization through a comprehensive screening solution. Depending on the position and hiring practices, some of the recommended services typically include:
NRMA Retail Theft Database
The National Retail Mutual Association (NRMA) offers an employee screening tool that goes beyond traditional background checks to deter the hiring of potentially dishonest retail employees. In fact, only five percent of the individuals located in NRMA have criminal records that may show up on a traditional search since most violators are never brought up on criminal conviction charges. NRMA offers our proprietary nationwide, retail-only theft database designed to stem the tide of inventory loss where it is most frequent – among employees who work with your merchandise every day. NRMA enforces procedures that meet or exceed safeguards mandated by the FCRA.
