NACS Launches New Employment Screening Tool for Members
ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- NACS and LexisNexis have teamed up to offer NACS member companies an affordable, user-friendly employment screening solution.
The LexisNexis service is specifically designed to streamline and simplify the screening and hiring process to NACS members -- both retailers and suppliers -- at a price that is substantially less than the rates that companies would be able to obtain on their own. To make the screening process easier for NACS members, LexisNexis offers pre-set background screening packages for key retail positions, based on the company's deep experience within the retail industry.
The new program gives NACS members, regardless of size, access to the same high-quality background checks that are routinely used by national retail corporations.
"Screening for and hiring quality job applicants is critical to our industry, from delivering exceptional customer service to reducing shrink and waste," said NACS Director of Products and Services Doug Spencer. "That impact is even more pronounced in smaller, independently run businesses that dominate our industry and makes this service especially relevant to many of our members."
"Convenience and fuels retailers are focused on serving their customers and driving sales, not administrative details like background checks. That's why we're here — to lend expertise around employee-related risk and screening strategies," said Joe Metro, director of retail screening for LexisNexis. "This program makes it easier than ever for NACS member companies to screen their employees. This program is customized to fit their needs at a price that they can only get through NACS."
