The Daily Record
One Source The Background Check Company is now a two-time winner. Almost three years after being named a Greater Omaha Chamber Small Businesses of the Month, the employment screening services firm has earned the honor again.
“Background screening is serious business and we take it seriously,” said CEO Nick Jasa. “One Source is a company that cares.”
One of the few accredited background screening firms in the United States, One Source has provided customized pre-employment, volunteer and tenant screening services since 1981 – first as part of Jasa Investigations, a privately-owned investigative company, and then as its own separate spin-off company starting in the spring of 2004. The firm performs more than 1,000,000 searches per year on over 200,000 candidates for clients across the nation, including corporations, schools, churches, government agencies and non-profit organizations. It boasts a search accuracy rate of 99 percent.
“We are determined to get it right,” Jasa said. “We are continuously monitoring not only our operations team but also our vendors for accuracy and compliance. Our vast experience as a background screening company combined with our customization add up to the best value for our clients.”
To provide them with ultimate service as well, One Source offers its TotalCheck Experience.
“It means we do not cut corners. It means we are thorough and focus on the quality of our products and services,” Jasa said. “Our clients can always expect 100 percent dedication to their best interests.”
The TotalCheck package includes applicant verification and county criminal history as well as checks of a multi-court jurisdictional database, the nationwide sex offender registry and global watch. An array of a la carte services, including credit history and professional license verifications, are also available.
“Our team is highly accountable and strives to provide the TotalCheck Experience both internally and externally,” Jasa said. “Interactions are authentic and meaningful.”
Another priority at One Source is empowering those team members to drive their own professional and personal development at work.
“The leadership team is intentional about shaping the culture in a supportive manner that aligns with company goals of accountability, adaptability, compassion, growth and respectfulness,” Jasa said.
A graduate of Westside High School and president-elect of Suburban Rotary Club in Omaha, Jasa started his career as an investigator with Jasa Investigations, a company his father Doug founded. He left, for a time, to pursue opportunities in Colorado but returned to Omaha – and began working for One Source – shortly after 9/11 when increased vigilance vaulted background checks to a new level of importance. Today’s industry is highly regulated and constantly changing.
“Our compliance director and leadership team make sure to seek out those changes, and we review our internal procedures to make continuous enhancements.”
Jasa said One Source is “surprised, humbled and honored” by its second small business of the month win. Since taking the honor in November of 2014, the firm has not let up.
“We’ve had the pleasure of welcoming many new team members to One Source. [The payroll now stands at 35 – ten more than in 2014.] We received our first “Inc. 5000” award in 2016. All while continuing to live out our purpose of empowering clients to make informed decisions,” he said.
There is more excitement ahead.
“One Source is at a really cool growth point,” Jasa said. “The team is working together to review the infrastructure and are being very intentional about next steps. It’s an exciting place to be and we are looking forward to the future.”
