Promoting Safety Since 1988
GroupOne was founded in 1988 by the Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council with one mission—to create a safer environment for patients and staff. With increasing demands within the healthcare industry to hire safe and dependable employees, GroupOne set out to become a trusted partner to HR professionals.
Over the years we have gained a reputation for successfully helping our clients identify quality workers and anticipating their needs, but safety has always been at the center of our ethos. GroupOne has evolved to be one of the best background check companies in the nation, expanding our product offering to meet every hiring need.
GroupOne operates under the guidelines of the FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) as a Consumer Reporting Agency and licensed Private Investigative Agency. GroupOne also adheres to pertinent Joint Commission standards including HR 1.20 and “primary source” research requirements.
We got our start in healthcare, providing quality results at rapid speeds.

The client selects the primary name and aliases here. If you perform the SSN trace and do not submit the order fully, you will see a Quickscreen report that is only a result of the initial SSN trace.
