)-- Avant Healthcare Professionals announced today that they have received IMAGE Certification from Department of Homeland Security. ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers (IMAGE) program was initiated in 2007 to combat unlawful employment and reduce vulnerabilities that help illegal aliens gain such employment.
The goal of IMAGE is to assist employers in targeted sectors to develop a more secure and stable workforce and to enhance fraudulent document awareness through education and training. Upon enrollment and commitment to DHS's best hiring practices, program participants will be deemed "IMAGE Certified" – a distinction DHS believes will creates the following benefits: national security, worksite protection, expert training and brand protection.
According to Shari Sandifer, CEO of Avant Healthcare Professionals, “We strongly believe the IMAGE Certification further demonstrates our commitment to operate in an ethical, transparent and responsible manner. As an industry leader in healthcare staffing Avant proactively sought IMAGE certification.”
