GIS was established in 1966 and is best known as one of the nation’s oldest and largest background screening providers – but we’re so much more. Today, we provide full-service screening, hiring and onboarding solutions to help organizations obtain the best personnel quickly and easily.
We are headquartered in Chapin, South Carolina. Our headquarters campus is the site of the majority of our operations and is home to most of our more than 1,200 employees. GIS operates two additional operations offices, one in Columbia, South Carolina and one in Dallas, Texas.
GIS is consistently recognized by clients for excellence in our services and support. We have twice been formally recognized by the United States Postal Service in their annual Supplier Performance awards. Out of more than 20,000 vendors that provide services to the USPS, less than 20 are recognized each year. We were recognized for Supplier Innovation in 2010 and for Supplier Excellence in 2015.
We’ve also received a number of awards from organizations recognizing our growth (Hire Power Award from Inc. Magazine, Fastest Growing Companies in South Carolina from the State of South Carolina Chamber of Commerce), our products and services (Hot List of Background Screening Providers from Workforce Management Magazine, Hot List of E-Recruitment Providers from Workforce Management Magazine) and our talent (American In-House Design Award from Graphic Design USA).
