HR Pain Points of Background Checking

HR departments are having to move ever swiftly to onboard candidates in the changing labour market, with process improvement essential in order to reduce the impact on already stretched resources. But implementing an HR system can be time consuming and costly, and getting it wrong could have severe consequences. Companies must get it right first time, so that deadlines, budget considerations and compliance can be met.

In addition, lengthy candidate onboarding processes exacerbate the problem, and extended check times can reduce engagement in candidates. A poor candidate experience is proven to have an effect long after new hires have started in their role; people who have had a negative onboarding experience are twice as likely to seek a new position in the immediate future.

As a result, implementing the right HR systems is crucial, to reduce impact on the business and to provide candidates with that all-important positive experience. And, as the global labour market opens up to allow easier movement between positions, and with the rise in remote working, quick, efficient candidate onboarding will be key. But many HR solutions continue to straddle the divide between digital and analogue, and often remain dependent on paper documents and in person signups, meaning that most of these options will quickly become obsolete in a post-pandemic world.

But there is a solution. The very latest background checking software delivers the fastest most efficient onboarding available today. Future proofed to allow changes within the company going forward, it also offers an efficient and engaging experience for candidates and employers alike with automated checks and notifications further reducing time to hire.
