With an inconvenient shortage of essential workers—such as nurses, teachers, and commercial drivers—employers are trying to expedite the hiring process so they can be sufficiently staffed as quickly as possible. Programs built to efficiently complete the background checks and medical screenings involved in the hiring process may be the hero employers are looking for.
Background screening can expedite hiring.
Many schools, offices, and other companies are opting for working remotely as long as COVID-19 is still a threat. Until the pandemic comes to an end, employers are looking for safe ways to hire qualified remote workers; online background screening takes some of the pressure off of HR when looking for employment history, criminal records, and other credential verifications. Online interviews can limit an employer’s view of a candidate, but background screenings can allow for an employer to get a broader picture of who is sitting behind the computer screen.
Although it is illegal to actively discriminate against someone in the hiring process based on factors such as race, sexuality, gender, religion, and age, everyone is capable of unconsciously being biased against someone. Using background screening programs that filter out unnecessary details about candidates keeps employers from making biased decisions that could impact the diversity of their teams. Background screening includes all of the important information that would determine whether a candidate is qualified for a job or not while omitting information that could keep your office from being diverse.
Filtering through an influx of candidate applications can take time; background screening automatically filters candidates based on an employer’s specific requirements. During stressful times, new employees need to be able to handle being hired, trained, and moved straight into working without burning out, and background screening can find those candidates before the interview process begins. Letting a background screening program filter out candidates leaves less work for employers and finds the most qualified candidates.
