The Elite Difference

The Elite Difference

Elite Backgrounds believes in providing quality background checks and only offers packages specifically designed to minimize the number of omissions and maximize your coverage. By using the applicant’s Social Security Number, we are able to uncover the jurisdictions they have lived, and request records directly at the county level using court record researches when needed.

Every report conducted is evaluated by a National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) certified professional to ensure:

• Records are complete and up-to-date
• Records are verified directly by the source
• All requested counties and courthouses are searched
• The records reported belong to your applicant
• Reports comply with federal and state reporting laws

Not all background checks are created equal. Contact Elite Backgrounds today to find out what your background checks are missing.


What Sets Us Apart from the Rest?

Throughout our years in business, our customers have consistently relayed that the following areas have had the most impact on their background screening results and experience:


Based on years of experience minimizing risks for those selecting caregivers to service vulnerable populations (seniors and children), we can provide expert advice and guidance on the best tools to extract the information you need to make informed personnel decisions. In addition, our direct database access, county criminal searches and electronic transmission of criminal records helps to minimize data entry and human error when compiling your reports.


We think customer service requires not just knowledge, but people who are passionate about what they do, and truly enjoy helping others. Your assigned account manager will take the time to learn about you and tailor our services to your needs. We truly strive to be your ally by providing you accurate information, exceeding expectations, and delivering services dependably with a positive, friendly demeanor. Because of this, our client retention is very high (99%) and we have the privilege of working amongst many friends who have been clients from the start.


Our customer service is a key advantage. We have no call centers. Our Customer Service Representatives are in-house and NAPBS FCRA certified and our top executives are licensed private investigators. The in-house support team, our Customer Service Representatives, are ready to help via phone, email or on-line website chat.


Direct access to courthouses and databases in county, state, and federal jurisdictions to extract criminal records, in conjunction with electronic instant delivery of records via secure technology means our turnaround times won’t impede your hiring or decision making process. To put it simply; faster turnaround times get you the information you need to make employment decisions, and ultimately create a more efficient screening process. Our overall report turnaround times range from 0.38 to 5 days with an average turnaround time of 0.86 days.


Elite Backgrounds can get you started running background checks within one day. We need to vet our new clients but this process can be quick and seamless. Once on board, our online system allows for easy ordering with instant access to secure online reports. Background report results come back on average of 0.86 days.


Our clients range from start-ups to multi-brand national employers, because we offer our services with fair pricing that doesn’t strain the tightest budgets. We don’t charge account fees, set up fees, and even your sample compliance disclosures, and authorization forms are provided complimentary with your account. Your account manager will assess your needs, and then tailor the most cost-effective package to meet them. No billing surprises, no minimums, pay only for the services you use, when you use them.

Industry Accredited

Elite Backgrounds’ commitment to quality is demonstrated by the fact that we are one of the few employment screening firms to receive the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) accreditation. Accreditation by the NAPBS is an industry seal that recognizes a screening company’s commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards, and continued institutional improvement. Elite Backgrounds is one of the best providers to meet or exceed the measurable standard of competence as governed by the Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC).

As General Manager of a home care company I rely heavily on Elite and I have been working with them for over 18 months. They provide all our background services and support. We could not select a more professional background service with which to be partnered. The customer support and problem solving are outstanding. I would not entertain another source for this service.
