A great candidate experience can mean the difference between finding the best candidate for the position and a bad hire. But what is candidate experience and why is it so important?
Competition within recruitment continues to grow, with workers demanding more from their jobs than ever before. Technology is now firmly infused into the fabric of our daily lives and the use of technology within the hiring process is not simply useful, it is expected.
Screening technology is constantly changing, and screening providers must be willing to move with the times to keep up with the changing needs of individual companies and sectors.
Your company is valuable, and whether you are a huge multinational corporation or a small start-up, finding the right employee can mean the difference between future success and failure. Carrying out comprehensive background checks can ensure that your employees will be a positive, not destructive, addition to your team.
The background screening process varies according to the role the candidate is applying for and the service you require from your screening provider, but generally involves identity, residency verification and right to work checks, employment checks, academic qualifications, credit checks, criminality checks and social media checks.
