iHire is A+ Rated and Accredited by the BBB – Here’s Why

iHire is A+ rated and accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) – two qualifications that we take very seriously. Read on to find out what that means, why it matters, and what we do to continually meet the BBB’s standards.


What is the BBB?

The BBB is a nonprofit organization with a mission to create “an ethical marketplace where buyers and sellers trust each other.” To achieve this, they’ve created and continue to maintain Standards for Trust with eight principles for businesses to follow, actively engage with consumers and companies, identify and celebrate market role models, and address substandard behavior.
