Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), a leading global background check provider, has successfully renewed its status with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM®), the largest HR organization in the world, as a SHRM Recertification Provider for a two-year term from March 2, 2021, to March 31, 2023.

As a SHRM Recertification General Provider, ESR – which was named the number one screening firm by HRO Today in 2020 – is able to award SHRM Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for HR knowledge and competency programs related to the SHRM Body of Competency and KnowledgeTM (the SHRM BoCK).

ESR offers HR professionals the ESR Online Safe Hiring Certification Course, which is an essential learning tool for workers who are responsible for risk management and due diligence in hiring and pre-employment screening. The course is currently being updated and a revised version is scheduled to be released in early 2021.

The course – the entirety of which is approved for 20 hours of SHRM recertification credits – was created by ESR founder and CEO Attorney Lester Rosen, the author of “The Safe Hiring Manual,” and is divided into seven units that are designed to offer a detailed understanding of current issues in hiring employees safely and legally.

Each unit of the course ends with a 25-question quiz and includes a study guide handout learners may download to help them pass the quiz.
