Philosophy & Culture
is Our Hallmark.
More than twenty years in business has taught us what's really important.
From the knowledgeable representative assigned to your account to our enterprise software solutions, Risk Assessment Group adjusts to meet your needs – not the other way around.
You'll always speak to a dedicated customer service representative, who knows you and your company, and has the credentials and expertise to serve your individual needs including FCRA advanced training and regularly scheduled professional development.
Dedicated Customer Service Representatives
Every Risk Assessment Group employee is located in the United States and no part of our service to you is outsourced. Every researcher is a valued team member who will personally answer your call or email – you simply won't be transferred or pushed to someone that you don’t know.
Dedicated Accounts Payable Representatives
When you have invoicing questions, just ask your dedicated Accounts Payable rep. No beating around the bush here. If you’ve read this far then you’ll be happy to know that you’ve just been awarded 10 percent off your first month's invoice for new customers. Mention this note and we’ll make sure that your discount is acknowledged.
Dedicated IT Representatives
Many of our customers use our service through HRIS integration. Others have special requests for management reports. Risk Assessment Group will put you in direct contact with an IT account manager so that your questions and requests are not filtered out by a middleman. IT projects always include your Account Rep and Dedicated Supervisor to ensure a total understand and execution of your request.
You will be assigned a manager who knows and understands your company. This supervisor will conduct your quarterly audit and keep you up-to-date on background screening trends. They can also help with 1-1 system training and adjust your account when your needs change.
Our client base ranges from Fortune 500 companies to businesses with fewer than 100 employees.
More than two decades of experience in background screening has taught us a little something about how to ensure great results. Our experience across the spectrum of industries and business size gives us unique insight on how to meet the needs of each.
Large or small, across all industries, let us show you the difference our experience can make.
