September 16, 2021 – Fort Myers, FL – Global HR Research (GHRR), a DISA company, has entered into an exclusive partnership agreement with RedZone Group Purchasing (RedZone). The agreement was facilitated by Ceridian, a global leader in human capital management (HCM) technology, as a strategic alliance to foster a streamlined, technologically advanced hiring solution. The agreement with RedZone will give its members access to the country’s most advanced screening services, which are supported by GHRR’s industry-leading screening technology, DISAScreen. This unique relationship also provides Redzone’s professional sports franchises and entertainment venue members with national contract pricing discounts—not otherwise available in the retail market—across their entire hiring process.

“When Ceridian presented the RedZone opportunity, we were excited to join an organization with such a vast portfolio of authorized vendors and members, including Grainger, Home Depot Pro, and Cintas,” said Brandon Phillips, Founder and Chief Revenue Officer of GHRR. “This partnership will provide their members unique access to our expansive team of experienced employment screening professionals to help them navigate the increasingly complex and regulated professional sports and entertainment industry. Our better data intelligence, better teams, and better technology create a perfect fit for RedZone members.”

Peter Secord, President of RedZone, also expressed avid support. “Because each one of our approved vendors has earned the trust of many of the country’s most recognized sports franchises and entertainment venues, the strategic alignment offers significant advantages to RedZone members, and that means we’re able to help drive incremental savings, which is at the core of our value proposition.”

The professional sports and entertainment industry must navigate complex compliance requirements throughout the candidate and employee life cycle. GHRR’s in-house compliance team constantly monitors the ever-changing legislative landscape and provides clients and partners with educational content, including white papers, webinars, and case studies, aimed at helping organizations mitigate risks at every turn. Providing additional context, Mr. Secord added, “The professional sports and entertainment industry must be constantly aware of compliance, from financial protocols to workplace regulations. By partnering with GHRR, our members can be confident that one of the most critical tasks they depend on, hiring their employees and contractors, is in the hands of one of the most trusted and capable screening providers out there.”
