3. What are some general trends you all are noticing in the background check world?

The background screening process plays a pivotal role in ensuring organizations make informed and responsible hiring decisions. The following trends underscore the critical importance of leveraging cutting-edge background screening technology:

Importance of integration: Research has shown that one in three companies use more than 10 different recruitment solutions, raising the importance of efficient integrations (Aptitude Research). That’s why Verified First has transformed how integrations work and offers two robust solutions for Workable clients, including a one-of-kind, patented browser extension integration.

Adoption of background screening: Over 80% of organizations recognize the significance of background screening in their hiring processes. This widespread adoption emphasizes a shared understanding within the business community about the necessity of evaluating candidates beyond their resumes.

Incomplete screening practices: Shockingly, 39% of organizations do not conduct background checks for every job position. This gap in screening leaves companies vulnerable to potential risks associated with inadequate vetting. Comprehensive screening is crucial in mitigating these risks and ensuring a thorough evaluation of all candidates. If you’re not sure what screens to use and when, connect with Verified First and their PBSA-accredited screening experts.

Verified First captured this data in conjunction with Aptitude Research as a part of our 2023 Talent Acquisition Tech Buyer’s Guide.
