VeriCorp was founded 1996 to meet the growing need for a provider of reports ranging from drug testing to criminal court information, because these reports were frequently being considered by companies looking to make smarter hiring decisions. As older technologies were being phased out across the industry, the internet and improved data retrieval methods were quickly growing. VeriCorp’s founder and former CEO, Gary DeWitt, had a technical background and experience with data communication and drug testing for various major medical labs and the credit bureaus. Over time, improved functionality and the evolution of hardware and fast internet access allowed VeriCorp’s system to integrate with various HR platforms, providing a seamless solution to companies in need of background screening and drug testing services.
VeriCorp’s Background Screening and Drug Testing Services Have Been Staples for Clients of All Sizes
For over two decades, clients like Hershey Chocolate and multiple hospital chains chose VeriCorp for these services, which simplified their hiring processes and reduced turnover. VeriCorp sold a portion of the business in December 2005 to a California company that maintained the staff and offices in Louisville, KY and created new avenues of opportunity. VeriCorp continued to operate independently, serving tenant screening clients and doing research for the entire screening industry. VeriCorp allows the quality of our reports, the speed of our service, and a family style attitude to be the core values for our operations. We have made a promise to not charge clients annual fees or contracts to use our services no matter how big or small they may be.
VeriCorp Continues to Grow
Since then, VeriCorp has further expanded its knowledge in technology and today serves as a fully functioning background and drug screening provider. We offer both national and international services and off-shore nothing. In 2016, Britany DeWitt, a U of L graduate, became President of VeriCorp after spending several years learning the business. While maintaining the same standards of excellence and customer service, VeriCorp looks forward to taking a fresh approach to its expanding services.
