NACS Offers Background Screening Platform for C-store Operators
ALEXANDIRA, Va. — To combat the high turnover rate in the convenience store industry, NACS has partnered with REDTAIL to bring the NACS Background Check program to c-store operators.
The REDTAIL program incorporates background screening services from SecurTest and patented iReviewNow technology to offer c-store operators a Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) compliant and accurate background screening solution, according to NACS, the Association for Convenience & Fuel Retailing.
The NACS Background Check Program offers access to background screening solution with benefits including:
- Compliance with FCRA and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission laws and regulations;
- Fast and easy-to-access results;
- Full transparency for the applicant, reducing the risk of potential litigation; and
- Access to the most Accuratized background reports.
According to 2015 NACS State of the Industry data, the convenience industry turnover rate for c-store sales associates climbed to 95 percent.
“It’s no surprise that hiring and retaining high performing employees is a serious challenge for the industry,” said Doug Spencer, NACS director of products and services. “One of the best ways to prevent turnover is to make the right hire — and that starts with a reputable, comprehensive background check.”
REDTAIL and SecurTest solutions are used by federal, state and local government agencies, along with commercial employers and retailers. NACS Background Check Program packages are available for purchase.
