Background screening can be considered a commodity in today’s employment market. With the On-Demand Industry and a more engaged and accessible candidate pool to draw from, organizations need to ensure their screening process can keep up!
There are 8 components to a successful background screening process that all modern employers should be looking to their screening vendors to provide:
1. Speed and Accuracy
API connections are available between many of Canada’s leading information bureaus. The benefit of a secure API connection is that it minimizes that amount of time that a candidate’s data is touched by a human, thus increasing accuracy. Direct connections also increase the speed at which data is transmitted.
2. Compliance and Security
For a background check in Canada to be compliant, all data must be stored in Canada. Adherence to Canada’s Privacy and Human Rights legislation, as well as provincial legislation is also a primary requirement.
3. Efficient Workflows
From electronic verifications to the adjudication of results, a productive and automated workflow will save recruitment and onboarding time, and ultimately money. Effective workflows will also increase candidate engagement and streamline the delivery of results to get the right people in the right seats sooner!
4. Candidate Experience
Don’t lose candidates to a broken experience. Make sure your candidates can access their files, provide consent and confirm ID from anywhere, on any device through a seamless, branded experience.
5. Empower Candidates
Make the most informed decisions by allowing candidates to add supporting documents and notes directly to their file. Modern background checking workflow includes the ability for candidate to provide context around potential convictions that exist on their record. Not All convictions are recent and relevant to a given position.
6. Client Support
Today’s world is On Demand. Connecting with bilingual Canadian-based experts through online web chat, 7 days a week should be the norm for both candidate and clients when it comes to background screening. It can truly be that simple.
7. One Platform, Endless Integrations
Access everything you need to do background screening in one easy to use place, including integrations with your existing HRIS and ATS systems. Gone should be the days of logging into a different platform for each individual service.
8. Fully Customized for Your Brand
