A Wichita firm that specializes in doing background checks of potential employees has acquired a smaller, local firm that focuses on talent management.
Officials from National Screening Bureau, 920 N. Tyler Road, declined to disclose financial terms of its acquisition of PeopleMatter Group, a 10-year-old firm that evaluates top-performing employees in a company to identify their common attributes and incorporate that information into the hiring process.
Todd Sutcliffe, president and CEO of the National Screening Bureau, or NATSB, said in a news release that the acquisition will add to his company’s service offerings.
“This acquisition expands our knowledge base with 60-plus years of … experience and enhances our already robust portfolio of products to now include (human resource) tools and talent management services,” he said.
