Who is ESR?


Employment Screening Resources (ESR) is a leading, global screening firm providing on-demand access to background screening & other services that empower employers to make informed hiring decisions. We believe companies deserve a screening partner they can rely upon to consistently deliver fast, accurate, and compliant information through an innovative, highly-integrated solution at an affordable rate. ESR is accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), is audited yearly for SSAE 16 SOC2 Type 2 controls and is EU-US Privacy Shield and PCI certified, collectively distinctions held by less than 1% of screening firms.



  • Increasing visibility and accountability, Newton audits the entire background check process and provides alerts and real-time status for every background check requested, started and completed (or not completed).
  • Advanced user rights permissions allow you to control which users can "request" and "submit" screens to your preferred screening vendor.


  • Newton’s background check integration shifts the collection of sensitive data from your company and moves that responsibility to the experts. No more sensitive data stored in email. 
  • Screening results are transmitted back into Newton discretely and are password protected so only approved viewers can access sensitive information.
