First Advantage, a Symphony Technology Group (STG) company and a leading provider of talent acquisition and electronic data solutions, announced today that Michelle Leblond, Vice President, and Teresa Adams, National Account Manager, of First Advantage Canada have been named to the first Board of Directors for the newly formed National Association of Professional Background Screeners® (NAPBS) Canada.
NAPBS Canada has become the third international branch of the association, following NAPBS Europe and NAPBS Asia-Pacific earlier in 2011. The guiding principles of NAPBS Canada are to promote cultural and business practices unique to Canada; establish best practices for the pre-employment screening industry; create and implement an accreditation standard which promotes professionalism in pre-employment screening while meeting Canada’s strict privacy laws that protect our clients, suppliers and screeners; establish a central voice for the industry as it continues to evolve; and educate members by raising their level of industry knowledge and professionalism.
“We are very proud that both Teresa and Michelle have been chosen to NAPBS Canada’s first board of directors,” said Jack Freker, CEO of First Advantage. “As a founding member of both the NAPBS and NAPBS Asia-Pacific, First Advantage is mindful and appreciative of the important services the association provides to both employers and member companies globally.”
