First Advantage

First Advantage is Now $FA on Nasdaq

Written by Chief Executive Officer Scott Staples

At First Advantage, we’re in the business of providing technology solutions for screening, verifications, safety, compliance and risk mitigation related to human capital.

But more than that, we’re in the business of getting the world to work. We have 26 offices in 16 countries, and we’re able to perform background screens in more than 200 countries and territories around the globe.

As we join the Nasdaq as $FA, we look forward to partnering with the public to invest in our technology and the solutions we deliver to the marketplace.

In a complex and changing world trying to emerge from the pandemic and get back to work, nothing is more important than trust, and that’s what our screening and monitoring services help deliver. Our customer-focused human capital solutions empower companies to hire smarter and onboard faster—and give them time back to focus on what they do best.

I want to take a moment now to thank all of those who have been a part of our journey to this stage in our company’s history. Thank you to our employees, customers, partners and investors who have come together to make First Advantage the organization that it is today. With their support, we will continue to help businesses around the world hire smarter and onboard faster.

I am so proud to be a part of this organization and can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.
