The Importance of the Candidate Experience

The Better You Treat Candidates, the Higher the Chance of Employment

While background checking and verification reduces your risk, when considering your recruitment strategy, you also need to consider the needs of your candidate. From the first time they see your job description to them coming on-board as an employee.

After all, a positive recruitment experience can mean:

  • Top candidates may be more inclined to accept your employment offer
  • Newly hired and current employees may recommend your organisation to their friends and former co-workers
  • A boost to both your employment and organisational brands, helping you stay competitive

An integral part of the candidate experience is the background check, which unfortunately, can be an uncertain experience for candidates. Furthermore, it can also create anxiety for you, since background checks are usually outsourced and therefore outside your direct control. HireRight aims to reduce this discomfort by providing a service that both you as an employer, and your candidate as a person under scrutiny, will find completely painless. We do this by asking questions.

What do candidates really want during the background check process? According to our frequent feedback surveys, accessibility, transparency, and answers.

Employers want reliability, discretion and complete accuracy.

All of our services have been developed to provide these things at every step of the recruitment process, ensuring a good experience for candidates and recruiters alike.
