-- PlusOne Solutions
, a recognized industry leader in the establishment of quality standards and full-service compliance management, has been selected by Utility Service Partners, Inc.
(USP) to provide a Safe Contracting Program including the management of insurance and licenses plus background/drug screen verification and assessment for all USP Contractor Network partners across the nation.
“We are pleased to be working with Utility Service Partners,” says Craig Reilly, CEO of PlusOne Solutions. “Companies working through contractor networks have become increasingly aware of the liability and financial risks posed without a comprehensive Safe Contracting Program. Our program allows USP to meet consumer worries about safety and security in dealing with in-home service and minimize their corporate financial and reputation management concerns.”
Reilly notes that PlusOne research indicates that more than 90 percent of consumers surveyed believed that service contractors who provided in-home services had been background screened and carried worker’s compensation and liability insurance. Recognizing this concern, many leading retailers, manufacturers and third-party administrators are now looking to Safe Contracting Programs to protect both corporate and consumer interests.
“This partnership will help USP ensure that only trusted, respected and professional contractors are dispatched to a customer’s home to represent our brand with honesty and integrity,” says Joe Tarby, USP Manager of Business Development. About PlusOne Solutions:
