2019 Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings: Pre-Employment Screening

View the results of this year’s Baker’s Dozen ranking for employee screening.

By The Editors

HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings are based solely on feedback from buyers of the rated services; the ratings are not based on the opinion of the HRO Today staff. We collect feedback annually through an online survey, which we distribute to buyers directly through our own mailing lists and indirectly through service providers. Once collected, response data for all providers with a statistically significant sample size are loaded into the HRO Today database for analysis.

In order to determine an overall ranking from this data, we analyze results across three subcategories: service breadth, deal sizes, and service quality. Using a predetermined algorithm that weighs questions and categories based on importance, we calculate scores in all three subcategories as well as an overall score. These scores are the basis of the Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings and demonstrate the relative differences among the ranked service providers.

This year, we’ve distinguished the enterprise and midsize program lists by the overall score. The top 13 highest are considered enterprise providers, while the next group of 13 are categorized as midsize program. The 2018 rankings divided the lists by size of deal, then ranked each provider based upon their overall score within each of the two segments.

The only influence that HRO Today has on the outcome of this survey is that HRO Today discards incomplete surveys or surveys outside the normal distribution. This includes surveys that are too perfect as to be possible or so negative that they are spiteful and inaccurate. Otherwise, HRO Today has no impact on the survey outcome. While we do not claim that our methodology is the only viable ratings program available, we do vouch for its statistical validity. We hope the Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings provides insight into your next RFP process.
