More than 90% of employers in the United States are conducting criminal background screenings.
Since hiring managers are depending on consumer reporting agencies to help make important employment decisions for their organizations.
There is a heightened demand for highly accurate reports, especially with the current Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) regulations that require maximum possible accuracy.
The Great Resignation has led to a war on talent, making the hiring process even more competitive. Employers are relying on background checks to be returned in a timely manner so they do not miss out on qualified candidates.
There is more pressure to research, retrieve, analyze, and report data in a quick, efficient fashion now than ever before.
The traditional retrieval method of manually processing data and using court runners alone is no longer cutting it.
A single court runner can only collect data one record at a time, with automation researchers can obtain data from sources across all jurisdictions and court levels simultaneously. Automating the retrieval process alone greatly reduces the turnaround time of background checks.
Automation enhances repetitive, cumbersome tasks to streamline processes.
With automated processes, the data is linked directly to the source to boost accuracy by eliminating human error and bias in reporting.
Discover the advantages of leveraging automation in background screening for accelerated, valid results.
